Elysium - new science fiction film featuring a large space habitat
A further trailer has been released for the forthcoming science fiction film Elysium. It looks really exciting and portrays a bleak vision of the future. Set in the middle of the 22nd century by which time the population is projected to be 12 billion, it's plot centres on a divided society between the vast majority on a despoiled Earth and a privileged rich elite living on an enormous space habitat named Elysium.
The habitat depicted is similar to a Stanford Torus, a large design for space settlement proposed by NASA in the 1970s.
