This project is designed to study the topic of space exploration. We took an in depth look at propulsion, space physics, moon base feasibility, and launch systems. We determined that for launch the best way to reach space would be rocket propulsion and then when in space a combination of plasma thrusters and solar sail. This project would best be used as a resource and a starting point for others who are interested in the colonization of space.
