The Rocket Company – 10 Years After
David Hoerr is the author of The Rocket Company. It was fiction, but may have some lessons we can learn from it. In the book there was a space enthusiasm bubble. 250 space transports were built with 6000 flights to LEO each year. The vision was to sell many vehicles.
He challenged us to think big. Some possible projects: First lunar base, “Spaced-base G5”, Asteroid mining, space colonies, first Mars expedition. As reduce price per pound will open up more options.
