About NSS Roadmap to Space Settlement

  • The Art Work should be as close as possible to what it might actually look like. Each art piece must include at least one person and a view of the setting so that it is obviously a space settlement and not something else.
  • Realistic means as accurate as possible both in science and engineering and as closely as possible to what a real space settlement would actually look like. The art need not be fully photorealistic, but the closer to that goal, the better. 
  • This year's themes: People Living and Working in Space Settlements
    OR Medicine and Medical Manufacturing in Space
  • The submitted artwork should be Original and Real. The Deadline for the submission is 16 March 2017, and the result would be announced on 1 April 2017.
