John Schilling, "Halfway to Anywhere, Part II: Groundwork For Going Beyond LEO"
John says getting to LEO is only half the job, and not the hard half. Our destinations all have issues. He explored some types of rockets. Then he talked about having a LEO Operation Base. It would be nice to be able to resupply a rocket. John says it would be good to have multiple suppliers. It would be good to have small engines. He likes the current set of propellant tanks that we have. He feels that the current plumbing systems could be greatly improved.
