Star city. Computer artwork of part of a 'ring around the world' space station in geostationary orbit. The space station known as 'Star City' is linked to Earth by towers at the equator (not seen here). The concept of 'Star City' is outlined in chapter 4 of Arthur C. Clarke's novel 3001: The final odyssey. The concept is based on the theoretical possibility of laying a cable between the Earth and a satellite hovering over the same spot on the Equator. The Moon can be seen at centre left and space ships which are servicing the space station can be seen at lower centre, at centre, and centre right.
