We researched the future of human space exploration, primarily for the Earth-Moon system. As collaboration between private companies and government agencies continue to grow, we see vast technological advancements forcing the cost of space travel to drop. We researched pending problems and solutions ranging from implementing space tethers to aid in space debris removal, helium-3 as a solution for our ever increasing energy needs and ionic propulsion expanding our exploration capabilities deeper into space.
