The Next Step

Let’s face it, we would all love to board the Enterprise and take off for the farthest reaches of space. However, practicality dictates we first need a base to build spacecraft. If the craft is built in space, the design possibilities are tremendous. Therefore, a base either on the moon, or in space, to house the people and equipment that will build the spacecraft, is needed. We will also need a reliable delivery system. This type of endeavor will require the forward vision and cooperation among nations, with each contributing to engineering, launching and building these stations. The ISS is a good example of this cooperation; it is now time to take the next step.
