Station in Orbit Only or Station/Ship? ¶
Great minds here have discussed and pondered a station as per Ascadia's founding goals. To me, as great as this is, I think of Space Lab and the ISS and it reminds me of my old job...control room operations...paid to know what to do when something goes wrong, trust me on this...it can be boring. Why not plan/design a station that eventually becomes a large space ship over time...sure the engines we have now will at best confine us to our immediate neighbourhood but we would still protect our planet... possibly better with more reach, much like sailing my small sailboat, at least I can explore my lake and small bays which is more exciting than sitting on a raft close to shore...any thoughts?
