I read once that it was impossible to design the International Space Station as a 2001-style donut wheel because, in real life, there are no construction materials strong enough to withstand the stresses it would entail.
We are not talking about ringworlds or orbitals.
O'Neill colonies are feasible with materials known 30 years ago - and they are far larger than mere ships.
