Abstract:

This book is dedicated to people everywhere who have always wanted to go into space but just did not know where to start. The main reason behind this book is for individuals like you to start thinking how you can build space colonies not just in the main asteroid belt but throughout this star system. The universe is out there just waiting for you to get organized, gather your equipment, and start training yourself so you can go. True, it might take another ten years before the political climate is right to send forth your spacecrafts, but you can start gathering the things you will need right now--p. viii.
