Space Settlements - Spreading life throughout the solar system
       

 

Arthur C. Clarke once wrote that new ideas pass through three periods:

  • "It can't be done."
  • "It probably can be done, but it's not worth doing."
  • "I knew it was a good idea all along!"

Princeton professor Dr. Gerard O'Neill got us past the first period in the 1970s by showing that space colonies are technically feasible. We're now in the second stage.
