As I understand it, within the next 50 years we intend to expand the ISS into a staging platform between the earth and moon, and want a permanent lunar colony mining for water to produce hydrogen fuel. We’re gonna need at least a hundred people off planet at all times to make that happen.

Man, you couldn’t pay me enough to go to space. Just have a deep innate respect/fear for space. So much could go wrong, it’s insane how much technology we need to simply orbit the planet safely.

How do I sign up, also I volunteer for Mars.

Everyone is missing the cost reductions due to reusable rockets and certain companies trying to minimize cost per kg to orbit means NASA can do waaaaaaay more for waaaaay less.
