There is going to be a land rush, like when the West was opened. First one to plant a flag on an asteroid claims mining rights. I always liked the plan for the space elevator myself. A satellite feeds a carbon fiber cable down to Earth and hoists people and cargo out of the gravity well. Notice that we’re only talking 240 miles. If my pickup truck could go vertical, I would be in orbit by noon.
It’s still a long way off, folks. Even if they make a Space Hilton, the accomodations are going to be a little weird (zero- or even near-zero gravity takes a little getting used to). And the room rates are going to be out of this world. Literally.
And like somebody once said about Texas, “There’s no there there”.
Can we next please contract with private industry to build a weaponized platform to kick the ass of anyone who even pretends to do something we don’t like? It could have a fancy name like maybe…. Dragon Breath.
ColJ (1): Respectfully, sir, you left out both “Cherokee” and “slave holder.” (minor oversights to be sure)
