Living in space requires a secure infrastructure and here’s how that infrastructure is established. Each rocket or heavy lift vehicle that is launched will contain one cargo bay containing six satellites, more or less, depending on the size of the satellites, and three fuel tanks. Each fuel tank will be housed in their own compartment on separate floors of the rocket shared with life support system equipment. Along with the first rocket launched, an empty passenger vehicle will be launched, but returned to Earth as soon as it reaches orbital altitude. The reason for it being launched empty and returning back to Earth is to reassure the public that a passenger vehicle can successfully be launched to orbital altitude and be able to return back to Earth. After all, people will want to return back to Earth after having spent some time in space, at least most people.
The second rocket will be launched in the same manner as the first along with a test launch of the passenger vehicle to once again reassure the public of a safe returning journey into space.
With each of the next four rocket launches, passenger landing vehicles will also be launched; however this time they will remain in space and orbit Earth along with the heavy lift vehicles. With six heavy lift vehicles, each containing satellites and empty fuel tanks in orbit, renovations will begin. Renovations will be performed by robots and will include: attaching the rockets together, cleaning out the spent fuel tanks, a total of 18 all together, and attaching and sealing the fuel tanks to the outside of the structure. Once this is done, complete renovations will be undertaken that will include: rooms, Jeffertubes, electrical and plumbing, state of the art electronics, and everything needed to operate HotelsInSpace orbiting the planet Earth.
Completing the Structure to Transform into a spaceship.
Completing the final structure, now a glamorous space hotel, two parts of it will be set in a rotational motion magnetically thus producing artificial gravity. With a spinning fully functional HotelsInSpace, robotic arms can remove the satellites from the six cargo bays and fling them into space employing a rotational system where the robotic arms rotate around the outside structure of the hotel. Along with the rotational action of the hotel structure itself, satellites can be easily flung into their own orbits anywhere in the solar system depending on the position of the hotel as it revolves around the planet.
Once all satellites have been sent off into their own orbits, the empty cargo bays will be used as Zero Gravity facilities for special events and purposes that requires ZeroGravity such as some sporting and gaming events, ZeroGravitySex or anything else that Humans could enjoy in a ZeroGravity environment such as creating special effects for feature films.
Once we lift 1200 more people and 36 more satellites, we have another spaceship.
Oh! Did I tell you? We can re use the used rocket engines as catchers mitts to collect SpaceJunk.
Dealing with SpaceJunk is prelude to capturing asteroids to mine for the NextGeneration to do.
