Experimental Moon Unit Design (Pencil and coloured pencil on paper, A4) (c) 2017 by International Publications Organisation World Wide

This housing unit for a family of four is designed to withstand extremes of temperature, dry rot, low gravity conditions, and is shielded against cosmic rays. It can be implanted with or without basement into any sufficiently dry surface, and is superbly coated to remain in good cosmetic condition even after years of use. Its lightweight construction allows for assembly from small parts in situ, yet the resulting form seems sturdy and solid. It therefore fulfills the psychological demands of its occupants for it to be protective, sheltering, and sufficiently shielded from the outside.

The special static properties of the Moon Unit render it unsuited for planets with gravity higher than 0.3 g, therefore, despite its low price, it is not to be used as a basic family unit for settlements on the planets Earth, Venus, or even Mars, but extremely well suited for the planets Mercury and Pluto, the Moon of the Earth, Phobos and Deimos of Mars, or the moons of Jupiter or most of Saturn’s moons, and the 13 moons of Neptune.    Experimental Moon Unit Design (c) 2017 Torsten Slama and International Publications World Wide

Low Density Settlement Unit Designs for Space People

Modern Bungalow - Night Ocean House (A4, pencil and coloured pencil on paper)

In the year 2072, thanks to the invention of the Schessmanweil Field Generator, interstellar travel at the speed of light and above will finally be possible. Due to several unforeseen consequences of the theories of  special and general relativity (especially after the introduction of non-Aristotelian Logic and non-Euclidian Geometry)  at speeds faster than light, resulting in a very wide margin of uncertainty about the behaviour of time during those travels, the return of a small percentage of early interstellar travellers can be awaited as of the year 2013.

The above design is part of a project for a secure living environment for those space people, where they can live peacefully, yet conveniently accessible to the information seeking scientific community.

Further design examples in a growing collection can be found here.  (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama and International Publications Organisation World Wide

Early Model Space Crystal Inductor

Speculative Rendering of a Space Crystal Inductor hovering low over the Surface of the Moon Psychopompos

Space Crystal Inductor hovering low over the Surface of the Moon Psychopompos

This speculative scene depicts an early model Space Crystal Inductor (SCI), hovering low over the surface of the moon Psychopompos which revolves in a large orbit around Pneuma, an unclassified planet of an unlisted star in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The medium-sized gaseous planet Pneuma can be seen in ascent, along with its second moon Klops IX. The SCI is fitted with an embedded crystal of high density, uni-polarized and small-scale. On Psychopompos it hopes to find infinitesimal lodes of rhombohedral methylin-3 crystals which it is to inseminate through its novel Ka-Band TE 21 second-harmonic gyro-TWT amplifier beam, thus catalysing an advanced crystalline growth, resulting in at least one new Space Crystal, which will then commence to levitate by means of its self-generated magnet field, to be guided by the SCI to its new home-planet, where it will be docked to a Human Settlement Unit (HSU), which it will guard and provide with energy on all wavelengths.  Copyright (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama and International Publications Organisation World Wide

Space Crystal Relay Station Schessmanweil with Ascending Maintenance Drone

Space Crystal Relay Station Schessmanweil with Ascending Maintenance Drone (pencil, colored pencil, gold leaf, 21×29,7cm, 2010)

This is one of thirteen design proposals for the experimental settlement Neutopia-Schessmanweil, a home for members of the Tellurian section of the Schessmanweil religion. The illustration above is a vital part of the colony’s service section, located in its northern part, Schessmanweil; a relay station which functions as a receiver for the sun worshipping rays of free-floating space crystals, modulate the frequencies around the n-spectrum to change them into tellurian energy particles, amplify them, and create a tellurian power dome around the settlement. The receiving unit itself is fairly innocuos, a standard model four-pronged poyutl, but needs constant maintenance and re-calibration of its vibration rate. This is done automatically and without human interference by the fully computerized maintenance drone also depicted. In the background some red brick private houses in the hills for the well-to-do lay priests.
