So often expanding into space can seem like a Catch-22, where every proposed idea for development can only be practical if space is already developed. Today we’ll take a look at some potential options for pushing forward our orbital infrastructure such as asteroid mining or power satellites, and take a look at what other technologies and industries might start the avalanche to our future in space and on other planets.
