Next Steps

Kenneth A Thompson

December 17, 2013

Establishing a permanent colony on the Moon should have followed immediately after Apollo 13. Never the less, visualize bases at both the North and South poles connected by tunnels along the Terminator. Just over the horizon, a ring of optical and radio telescopes creating our largest arrays. On this side of the horizon, a ring of communication dishes. All the material removed for the bases and tunnels having been used to construct large interplanetary probes, ships and stations. the surface "crawling" with "ROVers". The largest two asteroids in the Asteroid Belt being mined and transformed into stations. A Solar System wide fleet, sailing on the Solar Wind, gathering up the asteroids and comets needed to fully realize permenant expansion outward. Ever Upward, Ever Outward. Thank you for everything that you do, Kenneth
