Following an informational indrodction to the series, I plan to include the following mega-scale projects in my series;

Dyson Spheres, Rings, Swarms and variants
Alderson Disks
Stellar Engines
Jupiter Brains

As well as several smaller and currently more practical projets;

Large Scale Space Stations
Moon Bases
Sapce Elevators
Large Scale Mass Drivers

Finally I aim to cover a few example s of advanced technology that could be possible in the near future in realtion to astrophysics and space travel

Artifical Gravity
Artifical Intelligences
Large Scale Starships
Von-Newmman Devices
Self-Replicating Artifical ...
