Welcome to the Future of my Past.

When I was a kid in the '70s, one my favorite books in my personal library was a tattered mass-market paperback edition of T.A. Heppenheimer's Colonies in Space, an accurate, detailed summary of the NASA studies of long-term orbital habitats and space colonization for the layman.

One of the most inspiring parts of that book were the illustrations, ranging from technical drawings to beautiful, sweeping, strnagely pastor panoramas of Standford toruses and O'Neill cylinders, painted by one Donald Davis.

Mr. Davis has just released several of his NASA commissions to the public domain, saying, and I quote:

"You paid for them and they're yours."
