In the 1970s, NASA’s Ames Research Center gathered artists and asked them to imagine how feasible space colonies, able to accommodate about 10,000 people, might look.

The results are here (here in high resolution) and this an example.

Please note that Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur Clarke was first published in 1972. 😎

Here there is a Java applet to interactively explore some aspects of living in a rotating environment, particularly jumping off high platforms and throwing balls.Wait the applet load and click jump (must have java enabled, of course)
