Abstract

The purpose of this IQP is to assess the case for space stations in different scenarios. Methods used to study this topic were internet, book, and video research. Scenarios include an orbiting research facility, a Moon-to-Earth trade system, space tourism, and man-tended platforms. We try to determine whether a space station would be beneficial or have no effect in each particular case. The International Space Station is also referred to and some possible uses for it are touched on in these scenarios.
