How to Build Cities in Space

I was musing through my news feeds this morning and came across this interesting article on the Guardian newspapers website about ‘How to Build Cities in Space’. Its quite a lengthy article on the current state of developments in establishing a permanent human presence in either low Earth orbit, the Moon or Mars. Though private enterprises are picking up speed, there are some important considerations and research that is coming out of government-funded research (eg. NASA, the ISS). The article is thought-provoking as there are some aspects that might be useful for the Traveller RPG referee, especially for near-future settings such as Outer Veil or Orbital.

Its fantastic to see increased development and interest in establishing space colonies, but we have a long way to go!

The article can be found at The Guardian.
