Megastructures Rungworld 4

Inspired by the photography of ISS astronaut Alexander Gerst, this is a second painting depicting the megastructure known as a Rungworld.

A Rungworld is an orbital structure that links together several hundred McKendree Cylinders into a ring that resembles a bent ladder. The ring could float in space, surround a planet, or have a star at its centroid.
