Answer:  1) Cover of Larry Niven’s Ringworld sci-fi novel.
2) Screenshot from Halo, the game.

The ring-shaped superstructure called the “Halo” in the game Halo is based on the Ring world in Niven’s Ringworld (series).

    1. Ringworld is an award-winning 1970 science fiction novel by Larry Niven, set in his Known Space universe.

    2.Halo.

    Larry Niven (author of Ringworld) was originally approached to write the Halo Universe novelization, but declined due to unfamiliarity with the universe.

  4. halo.

    image 2 seems to be from halo the game, and image 1 is some sci fi funda with a man made inhabited giant ring around the sun like a halo.

    just pot shots.

    Image 1:
    Cover of RingWorld, a 1970 science fiction novel by Larry Niven.
    About a mysterious ‘ringworld’, an enormous, artificial, ring-shaped structure that surrounds a star.
    (radius: ~1.5×10^8 kilometers)

    Image 2:
    Halo (3 perhaps), the game. Here, ‘Halo’s which are artificial rings in space, are used to contain the “Flood”, a bunch of alien zombie things…
    (diameter: ~10,000 km, so, obviously much smaller)

    Connect: artificial ring shaped super structures in space…

    The connection is the concept of a ring-shaped space-habitat.

    The concept was explored in Larry Niven’s ‘Ringworld’ (first picture). The plot of the game Halo (second picture) is also set on an artificial ring structure.
