its more expensive to shipall that stuff up there in the first place. hell that number of launches in a certin amout of time would bankrupt nasa. its cheaper to build it on the ground, stick it in a shuttle and blast it up into space and just snap it into place.
euh there is another sollution and that is building a space elevator with the help of carbon nano tubes and on the end in space build a construction site for space crafts and we can bring equipment and materials which can't be made in space on earth and bring them to the site in space. low cost high efficiency. this can be done believe it or not the tech is allready being developed and they say with in 15 years they can build it and after being build we can really explore space..
another sollution is GTC from hongeria which is developing saucer like craft using anti gravity
