A 200 year plan of action {with adaptive priority override for HMS species success} Start date 2017 [Theoretical]

"Spreading out into space will completely change the future of humanity" - Prof Stephen Hawking

The Sky Is Not The Limit.

Space Travel Mile Stones:

1944 A V-2 Rocket made a vertical test launch. It was the first man-made object to reach outer space, achieving 176 kilometres.

1957 Sputnik, Russia put the first man made satellite in low earth orbit. This triggered the space race.

1966 Luna 9 Became the first probe to achieve a soft landing on another planetary body. It returned five black and white stereoscopic circular panoramas, which were the first close-up shots of the moon’s surface.

1969 Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. The first human step onto land in space. ‘’A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind.’’ The whole Apollo program lasted until 1972.

1970 Venera 7 became the first spacecraft to land on another planet, Venus.

1975 The Apollo–Soyuz Test Project. Stafford and Leonov, exchanged the first international handshake in space and with that the space race was over.

With the space objective concluded and with no other objective in hand, human space development was put to sleep. The focus has been mostly on earth satellite services and various scientific research probes with limited purpose & without any great objective.

2017 Today the race is back on. This time not political national competitiveness [Although that is ever present] Today it is Climate change that is the lash at our heels. A race to ensure the survival of our species and to give options of colonies on our nearest planets and to inhabit intermediate space.

Along with the coming national endeavours many modern economic entrepreneurs having amounted vast personnel wealth, have revealed a keen desire to make achievements in space beyond earth. While these ambitions are not symmetrically focused or combined they share a plan to facilitate human excursions, if somewhat limited in point. Only Elon Musk has Mars in his sights. Unfortunately, I do not believe his plan consists of much more than maverick ambition which is also not accompanied by a step by step, safe & sustainable long-term approach.

 

Below is a British plan of attack to staircase the solar system with good old fashioned Victorian pragmatism from 2017 - 2077 and beyond..
