Terraforming
and Space Habitats
What is Terraforming?  It is the taking of unihabitable planets and making them habitable.  Terraforming is the part and parcel of written science fiction.  Not so much in movies or TV, though there are some examples.  I believe we will on day terraform other planets, either in the system of out.  Whether we use microbes  to do the job for us, or engage in a massive engineering project involving the movement of quadrillions of tons of material, if we survive to that time we will have the ability to change worlds to suit our purposes.  All it takes is energy, and any civilization capable of producing massive amounts of energy will be capable of this kind of engineering.  Again, all it takes is energy, and just a little bit of time.  At least decades, and probably centuries.  Mars and the Moon are both likely targets in our system.  Venus not so much, though not impossible.
A Terraformed Moon:  I really like this one, and the music is really cool too.
A Look From a Living Moon:  Not as much as the first, but I like the view of the earth above the Lunar Ocean.

Terraforming Mars:  A bit quicker version of the planet become blue and beautiful.
Terraforming Mars From the Surface:  What it might look like in time lapse.
Venus Anyone:  Not sure how they intend to get the magnetic belts to generate.
Terraform All The Worlds:  Not sure its really possible, but with enough genius and energy, who knows.
The Moons of Jupiter:  Well done video.  Would be cool if it happened.
Terraformed Moon: in full rotation

Universe Sandbox - Terraforming Mars:  Really cool program for doing all kinds of studies.
Space Habitats.  Bringing a little bit of Earth into a tin can.  Not sure how far we will go with these, but I believe there will be billions living in them within the next three hundred years.
Rama:  From the Arthur C Clarke novel, but could be a space habitat as well.
Ring Habitat:  Just a little flythrough of a ring habitat that produces artificial gravity through spin.
More Sedate View of the Ring Habitat:  Still really cool, and gives a sense of place.
The Carousal:  Real Earth type environment?  At least it looks more secure.  A blowout of one dome doesn't harm the others.
Space Habitat 2:  Based in the Stanford Torus.
Another Clip of Rama:  I think this thing is really cool.  Makes me want to live on one.
Infinity-Universe:  Space station and Earth from this ambitious program.
