The Space Platform

I used to gobble up space concept art like this when I was a kid. Here you see the concept for the “Space Platform”, which would have been an unmanned experiment platform in space that was serviced by the brand new Space Shuttle. For more info about the Space Platform, check out the book, “Automatic Control in Space 1982: Proceedings of the Ninth IFAC/ESA Symposium”. Which has a ton of technical information as well as cool diagrams like this one.
