This is true but the colony would be on the inside surface of the torus. No
need for the gravity to extend beyond this inner surface. It's a lot like
rolling up a piece of the country side about 5 miles wide and 17 miles long into a
tube and spinning ti for centrifugal force (not really gravity) The sky is
enclosed and light is funneled in by fiber optics from a collector separate from
the torus.
