Some Correct Scale

Here is an excellent study of the interior of the Stanford Torus space habitat by Rick Guidice.

It's particularly notable as one of the few renditions to get the scale of the actual final design right. 



The Stanford Torus was the final in a series of designs intended as  minimum sized test beds for a self sustaining space habitat. The Stanford Torus's habitation tube was "only" 430 feet wide. That's still almost half again wider than a football field is long, and it would have been 3 and a half miles (5.6K) long, which is pretty impressive.

1 Cool, and I'd live in one in a hot second, but that's kind of small.
