Smarter Space Station
November 19, 2012
We need to get smarter about what it takes to put men in space. We need gravity to be healthy -- but how much? Could we live well at 1/10th G? Or 1/2 G? Do we need a full G of gravity? A rotating space station could find out. Then we can use spin for "artificial gravity" on long duration space missions and begin designing manned space craft with that in mind.

Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
