Hang skyscraper from orbiting asteroid: NY architects behind Mars ice station

https://www.rt.com/viral/382602-skyscraper-hangs-orbiting-asteroid/

Get your parachute ready: radical design plans have been unveiled for a skyscraper (Earthscraper? Ed) that hovers over the Earth.

The futuristic ‘Analema Tower’ revealed by New York-based architects Clouds AO, proposes building from the sky down as opposed to from the ground up.

According to the agency it is possible to strap or hang a building to an ASTEROID orbiting the Earth with such precision that the building floats just above the surface.

The design deploys a ‘Universal Orbital Support System’ (UOSS) in which high-strength cables are attached to an asteroid lowered over Earth. Seriously,

The tower is suspended from this cable, effectively floating over our planet as the asteroid orbits above.

The high rise would travel in a 24-hour figure-eight cycle over major cities across northern and southern hemispheres, returning to exactly the same position in the sky each day, Clouds AO Architects explain.

Leaving the building, as it were, going for a walk, requires a parachute.

The building would be divided into sections dedicated to different activities, with businesses occupying the lower end of the tower and residents living two-thirds of the way up. The higher level floors are to be reserved for ‘devotional activities’.

The size and shape of the windows would change throughout the building depending on  pressure and temperature changes between floors. Upper windows, which will have more sunlight hours due to the curvature of the Earth, would have rounded elevations to cope with the increased pressure.

Solar panels would generate power and water would be collected from cloud condensation and rain.

quick..if you go down to your backyard garden you might find some leprechauns as well..

  1. >>i want a kilo of whatever these guys are smoking..

    law not passed for you to buy/cultivate a kilo yet.. 🙂

    BOTanix

  2. All you need is a suitable asteroid which are easy to find as we all know .

    Then you can rent out office space with a deposit somewhat prior to the build – lol

    Elon Musk’s spaceships could connect with your new office on the way to mars.

    OR we could feed some starving children with the ” investment”

  3. and the crowd is happy with the new Mars rover prototype built for NASA

    more money up in smokes
