The Solar System to scale

The earth Venus orbital symmetery

as seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times!
Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!
Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34.. So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they
create Fibonacci symmetries?! You bet!!

Planetary orbits in the Fourth Dimension

You probably that planets go around the sun in elliptical orbits. But do you know why?
In fact, they’re moving in circles in 4 dimensions. But when these circles are projected down to 3-dimenisons

Chariklo, the largest known centaur object, orbiting in a region between Saturn and Uranus

SETI Institute
The Lords of the Rings among centaurs

Chariklo, the largest known centaur object, orbiting in a region between Saturn and Uranus,
is a very intriguing celestial body that surprised astronomers last year.
This remote minor planet has unveiled the existence of its rings during a stellar occultation,
when it passed in front of a star UCAC4 248-108672.
The discovery was surprising because it had been thought that rings could only be stable around much more massive bodies.
Having in mind Chariklo's relative small mass, the rings should disperse over a period of at most a few million years,
so the scientists conclude that either they are very young, or they are actively contained by shepherd moons with a
mass comparable to that of the rings. Image credit: ESO/L. Calçada/Nick Risinger "Read more

Due to their dual nature, the name Centaur has stuck when referring to objects that act as both comets and asteroids.

Settlement proposals for the solar system

The VONA Space Settlement Proposal

Published on Jun 5, 2014 VONA is a space settlement design that tied for Grand Prize in the 2014 NASA-NSS Space Settlement Design Contest. VONA was created by was created by a team of 6 students (grade 10): Aditya P. S., Amareen S., Hatinderpal Singh G., Hetarth C., Karan C., and Prajjwal M.; under the instruction of Mr. Emmanuel R. (Apeejay School), from Jalandhar, Punjab, India. Category Science & Technology License Standard YouTube License

The O'neil Space Settlement Proposal

Forget the flying cars and robot maids, we’re just a few precious generations away from ditching this hunk
of space rock called Earth and living among the stars. The dream of off-world living is thanks, in large part,
to a single Princeton physics professor who not only envisioned a new path for humanity but nearly convinced Congress to
go along with it. Piers Biznoy explains just how close we came to building orbital habitats in the 1980s in his new book New Space Frontiers.

3 Types of Space Colonies: NASA Settlements and Space Travel For The Future Of Humanity! New Earths!

Published on May 22, 2014 "A billion years ago there was no life on land. In a phenomenal development, by 400 million years ago, land life was well established. We are at the very beginning of a similar, perhaps even more important, development. Today Earth teems with life, but as far as we know, in the vast reaches of space there are only a handful of astronauts, a few plants and animals, and some bacteria and fungi... mostly on the International Space Station." NASA has designed at least three Space Colonies for Interstellar travel that are capable of sustaining many generations of humanity for the long periods of time it would take to physically transport humans from one star system to another!

NASA picks 6 companies to develop prototype space habitats August 12, 2016 William Harwood

astronauts living and working near the moon as technology is developed for eventual flights to Mars, the agency announced Tuesday.(august 9, 2016)
NASA already is developing the Space Launch System heavy-lift booster and the Orion capsule that will carry crews to low-Earth orbit and beyond.
But Orion is far too small to support crews for long stays in so-called cislunar space or multi-year round-trip flights to and from Mars.

Kalpana One tour from Bryan Versteeg Studios Inc. on Vimeo.

With a radius of 250m and a depth of 325m, Kalpana One would spin at a rate of 2 revolutions per minute to give the feeling of one earth gravity on the level where everyone will live. This means that people could live long and healthy lives while their bones and muscles would develop as they would on earth. This example layout of the settlement shows all of the luxuries and recreation of a small town.
