If, like a considered disk world, each such cylinder section is of radius 796km, (1/8 of Earth), these are long enough along the ring, so that while each cylinder section slowly spins, each cylinder pair would need to be joined at their axis ends able to slightly flex there a little between each two adjacent cylinder sections. Where joined, towers stuck out above and below the ring would have very big sunlight energy collecting slow spinning thin flattened disks to supply more energy than could be obtained from reharvesting internal accumulated average temperature random sonic speed molecular heat motions.
The resulting possible population could be 35 times more than a simpler more thin ring world of ring cross sections being 135km radius circles. This could thus have 1.56 quintillion (1,563,000,000,000,000,000) people! Or again if the volume per person used to calculate Fullball world populations was triple what's efficiently needed, especially for food plants grown longer here each day and year, while never eaten by farm animals nor harmed by other Earth life nor bad seasons, then one such ring world around a small safe star could allow eventually 4.7 quintillion "moderns", to safely live over lots of billions (1,000,000,000s) of years!
That would be about a billion whole Earth populations from back when architect/futurist R. Buckminster Fuller was designing some tall cylinder apartment centers etc. for many folks to nicely efficiently live in! Wow! That many? Fantastic!
So once again, to gain vastly more living space than ever possible on Earth, we should never even dream of bothering to seek any remote lucky inhabitable planets around other stars. Orbiting settlements, for vastly many billions and even vastly more, can be robotically built from materials robotically refined and formed from the many available asteroids orbiting a sun. (And besides, even the best other planets might have atmospheres, climates, and surface conditions rather lousy for human living & for our needed food plants.)
