And are we just going to the moon or beyond. Me, I vote for beyond the solar system.

The whole pleasure for me of this thread is not wondering today about how we cost the building of a space craft but getting those interested on ATS to think about the craft and its engineering.
Do you think that the engineering behind the shuttle worried about the cost. I think not. They left that to the adminstrators!!! Today, I see us on this thread as the engineers.
fly crews and supplies up and back

a good idea, but not yet.
maybe nasa can use like a roller coaster type design but make the roller coaster wide enough to fit the shuttle and make it one to two miles tall and really stable enough so storms won't hurt the launch coaster.And what they can do is put the shuttle on the coaster and have it hooked up to those lifts on the track and make the shuttle go up so fast once it hits that key point turn the engines on and release the attachments and your up in space three minutes later but i don't know if that will work just an idea.
Are people here serious about actually building a space ship?;D You do know that Nasa can hardly afford one space suit, how are you all going to build a whole space ship?;p
