Our future in space may be one of millions or even trillions of vast space station, space habitats, and megastructures. How would a space-faring civilization going about traveling around such an immense solar empire?

Superconductors offer us a path to high-efficiency, low-loss power and energy, but the impact they'll have on our civilization through other technologies may be far greater, and we'll explore the science or superconductivity works and what future technology it will of us.

Science fiction often shows us post-apocalyptic future civilizations with techno-barbarians running around in fur & hides but carrying laser weapons or other advanced technology. But how plausible is such a civilizations and what would it actually be like?

If the Universe is inhabited by older alien civilizations, those who have ventured out to the stars and colonized galaxies, we would expect to see a footprint of extraterrestrial activity. Could the many stars whose brightness has dimmed be indicative of Dyson Spheres or other Megastructures? Could the Cosmic Voids vastly bigger than any galaxy be the work of even greater and older starfaring species?

Our solar system contains many planets, moons, and asteroid that we may one day call home, but the future might instead be artificial space habitats, stations, and megastructures of vast size and numbers, using all those celestial bodies as raw materials to be dismantled for construction.

Mankind's future is among the stars, but not necessarily on other planets. Instead we might forge giant space stations that are entire artificial worlds, and today we'll explore some of those megastructure designs, like the McKendree Cylinder, Bishop Rings, Banks Orbital, Topopolis, and more.
