Radio interviews with Space Future's founders and correspondents:

  • Mark Sonter
Origin:Asteroid Enterprises Pty Ltd
Abstract:Large facilities in orbit will need to be assembled from smaller pieces, launched separately. Some of this assembly work will be too complex for automated or teleoperated guidance and will need to be human-directed by spacewalking astronauts. These large facilities may comprise for instance, space solar power satellites, orbital hotels, some sort of zero-g factory facilities, or future space stations tasked with assembly and launch of large spacecraft or other assets to GEO, to the Moon, or to interplanetary destinations (the ideal departure orbit being Equatorial Low Earth Orbit).
