It's shape and design is inspired by the ISS. It's one of the most huge space station I ever made.

 

Holy Science Labs Batman!

Here's some pics of 'Pegasus Station', a giant ring station in orbit of Kerbin. I took a shot of a Kerbal on EVA to show you how big this thing is. I've also got 'Valkyrie Station' orbiting Laythe, and smaller stations on moons (not battle stations the size of moons!). View them here: https://goo.gl/photos/Vita16MY68e4Ypc66

@The_Cat_In_Space Cool station and lovely screenshots.

I see you docked the habitat ring together in modules (nicely done), but did you launch the glowing blue ring all in one piece? I'm curious as to what mod the blue ring comes from and what's its intended purpose. It certainly adds a dramatic touch.

I can't remember, but it's called an 'orbital supercollider'. It just looked cool, I guess! :P

this is my new station 'Ulyseses' and the first crew are arriving:

It is comprised of a blend of Stock, NearFutureConstruction, Stock-A-Like Station Parts and Tantares.

Hey there ! This is my first post on this forum :) 

I've readed almost the half of this subject, loving some of those great space stations, and finally decided to share you mine...

Ladies and gentlemens, I'm proud to present you the KSS-1 'Bora-Bora' Space Station !502494screenshot83.png

KSS-1 is orbiting in LKO (around 210 km), but it's orbit have been a little bit "moved" by the several dockings I made on it, and will need to be readjusted (there is actually 30km between the apoapsis and the periapsis). The total part count (with vessels docked as on this pic) is 397, a great lag cannon for my laptop.

Actually there is some vessels docked onto it :

- Two MTV A1 'Aito' Transfer Vehicle, used as all-purpose vessels, for Kerbals, refuelling, and module manipulation. I really appreciate those little vessels, very balanced, with high manoeuvrability. One is docked on the lower node, the other is on the top on the upper node.

- A SSTV-1 'Vini' tug module, used as its name says as an assembling tug (on the right of the lower node)

-A SSTK 'Kepler' Measure Module, holding a lot of scientific devices and surface scanners, docked on a lateral port of the main lab, near to one of the MTV 'Aito'.

- A Soyouz spacecraft, reproduced with stock parts and KOSMOS parts,docked on the APAS-docking converter, under the Service Module.

Here is a complete diagram of the current disposition of this station :

And a more detailed view of the right part, with the Service Module, the Habitation Module, a MTV A1, the Science Platform 'Bohr' and the Soyuz :

I have a lot of things in mind about the future of this station, and will continue to expand & improve it while also building new ones (one is currently in early assembly state) :)

Todo-list :

  • Replace the solar arrays by bigger ones and reuse those in the second space station (named with some creativity KSS-2)
  • Add a robotic Kanadarm, and several attaching points on the station
  • Move the Science Platform 'Bohr' elsewhere and dock the shuttle docking hub in this place
  • Add a life support module to increase the Kerbals capacity (would be better to kill more kerbals in case of de-orbiting :D )
  • Add a motor module at one extremity to move the station by itself
  • And so more....
