Dico S.F. – Dyson sphere

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A Dyson sphere is a space structure imagined in 1959 by the physicist Freeman Dyson, constituted by an artificial sphere entirely surrounding a star to collect all its radiations for energetic and industrial endings.

Frequently, in S.F., the spherical form is abandoned for less expensive structures: swarm (independent collectors distributed on an imaginary sphere) or ring world (cylindrical ring going around the star in its equator).

Matching words : O’Neill cylinder, Bernal sphere, Stanford torus
