Space colonization and free space habitats

Most people will associate “space colonization” with settlements on the surface of celestial bodies such as the Moon, Mars or even exoplanets. However, most stories on this site are set in free space habitats, that are (rotating) space stations which are in orbit around the Earth or directly around the Sun. Such habitats can have varying sizes, from a few hundred meters to many kilometers.
