Star city. Computer artwork of part of a 'ring around the world' space station in geostationary orbit on a starfield background. The space station known as 'Star City' is linked to Earth by towers at the equator (white lines). 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 in the image at upper left.
