Also, the asteroid belt is largely arranged along a flat plane with the inner solar system, so if you create an orbit that is along a different plane,
you can generally avoid most of the asteroids. There is a way to orbit between the sun and Jupiter on a highly eccentric escape velocity such that as
you orbit back around the sun and are heading back out to deep space, you reconnect with Jupiter, using it to slingshot you back into the inner solar
system. Until we discover some type of novel propulsion system that can mitigate G-forces on people, we'll most likely have to set up permanent
orbital trade routes like these so that goods can be exchanged via sudden acceleration between the Jupiter trade route and the inner solar system.
Honestly, I hope we have a huge leap forward in technology before we enter a proper space age, because as it stands, life in space would be very
lonely, very boring and very dangerous. I guess if we can perfect virtual technology, it won't matter all that much.
Actually, that's it, that's what I think this reality is. We are all voyagers on a sleeper ship and we've engaged in this rebirth process to pass
the time until we reach our destination. ;p
