Awesome work, man.
One thing though... if you combine reflective metal chevrons over thick Quartz glass (Or fused Quartz), you should have no issue with glass breakage.
Quartz glass on it's own has the hardness of steel on the Mohs scale, it simply has no real compression, torque or tension potential, but none of that should matter in a Cylinder.
4-6 meters of reinforced Quartz glass, even without the chevrons, should be able to skip and deflect most impacts and anything bigger can be compensated for by closing the mirrors. not to mention, you have Energy shields.... :)

Great work. I do have one question, though. Concerning the mass, it states 323.26 SMU. What exactly is an SMU and how does that translate into tonnage?

SMU = Standard Measuring Unit, but for the life of me I don't remember what the base measurement for comparison was.  I think it was the Stanford Torus.  If so, then this was supposed to be 323.26 more mass than the Stanford.  I'm sure if IO went back over these spec sheets and took another look at the specification, I'd be shaking my head, wondering what I was thinking.

Nowhere, unless you break into my house, get by my dogs, the security cameras, the shots from my 30-30 and steal my computer.

Go to Amazon or Ebay and look up O'neill cylinder model. Wave makes one and I just purchased one for 38.00 USD.

Hi Glenn, I love your depiction of my fav O'Neill design !

As I'm working on a comics that takes place at some points in such a station, I've searched the web for everything about O'Neill cylinders and extracted some 15 outstanding graphics to inspire the artist ^-^ So I've included your image in the documentation pack I'll give him. Are you opposed to that ?
