this was great. with the retirement of the shuttle we need more educated students of science trying to come up with a better method and quickly if we are to remain in space

this is awesome we need to get alot more funding for our space program.I hope this is done in my lifetime it might be im only 20 hopefully bye 2020 we have alot of space hotels and entertainment stations and maybe even bye 2030 start to have colonies on the moon that would rule.I hope we make it it will be a good ride for the human race can't wait. I hope the war ends to peace to everyone.

We're at the dawn of a commercial space age, I just hope it really booms.

we can also use those ets to make an artificial ring around the earth.Which people can live in them to it could connect the north to the south and the east to the west and we can use the artificial rings around earth to detect asteroids and the rings can produce a super strong sheild that will protect the earth from asteroids and gamma ray burst we can also put an artificial ring around the moon to and it will do the same thing we will have huge space hotels around jupiter and saturn and even mars we will be able to colonise every moon in the solar system and colonise all the rocky planets to won't that be awesome. I so can't wait for that.
