Concept for Chapter 11: The Greenhouse
This chapter was supposed to show the greenhouse-interior. The construction of the whole space station got a lot more time-consuming than expected and I had to leave it unfinished. I feel very sorry about that, because I love the the idea of a greenhouse in space. Hopefully I'll get the time to finish it in the future.
The sketches above show how I planned the chapter. The first picture shows how the cosmonauts enter the empty module. The next two double-pages explain that the greenhouse is a part of the stations closed ecosystem and its modular design (the modules can be attached to together to create bigger greenhouses).
The last image shows the interior full of different plants.
