From his first settlement, VOSS, constructed in a virtual reality platform, Antonio has researched and designed over 7 space settlements of various shapes and sizes. In his most recent project, Project Divinity, Antonio mentored fellow members and witnessed the project winning the Grand Prize at the 2016 NSS-NASA Ames Space Settlement Design Contest.
