The Singularity is an Ascension

“The Singularity” is an event of expansion of intelligence that feeds back into itself creating a period of exponential growth. We find it difficult to imagine much less define a state of super intelligence, but we can postulate that it will offer solutions and provide opportunities. An Ascension is the process of moving to a […]

INTRODUCTION GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY GETTING THERE MINING HABITATS LIFESTYLE Resources Empty space is free (once you get there) Energy is almost free from photovoltaic collectors Valuable volatile gases and metals are easily available from asteroid mining Building materials will be cheap and plentiful from asteroid mining Computing/Com/Nav net An information rich environment built on state […]
    
 
 

Living In The Asteroid Belt – part 5 – Habitats

Previous articles in this series: 1-INTRODUCTION 2-GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY 3-GETTING THERE 4-MINING HABITATS Choices – are limited by a need for rotational symmetry so that the habitat can turn steadily to create artificial gravity. All of these shapes are designed to provide living space on the inside surface with rotational force pushing everything “down” toward […]
    
 
 

Living In The Asteroid Belt – part 4 – Mining

Previous articles in this series: 1-INTRODUCTION 2-GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY 3-GETTING THERE MINING Value: Volatiles are the frozen gases found in the asteroid rocks, including oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and more. These will be the most valuable substances mined because they will be needed for air and water and fuel. Precious metals will be the second most […]
    
 
 

Living In The Asteroid Belt – part 3 – Getting There

Previous articles in this series: 1-INTRODUCTION 2-GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY GETTING THERE Rockets that use chemical reaction thrust in both solid form and liquid form have been the only option for many years. But they require a massive amount of thrust requiring large fuel tanks and limiting payloads. Historically, they have been expensive and discarded after […]
