The Space Development Equation, here in shortened form, is Cost of Spinship divided by number of habitats equals cost per habitat to be paid monthly as rent over the five to ten year payback period. After payback of initial capital expense, rents are controlled by market forces alone. Factors such as types of investors and initial and later tenant types are included in the completion of the Equation. I’ll let you know the outcome in my investor book arriving late in 2019, if I can do the math in that time. A detailed set of spinship plans and specs and stress analyses are required before the Equation can be presented. Chapter 8 in the current “The Space Trade Update,” explains the general plan for solving the Equation.
I would lose myself in spinship economics, but for my plan to write fiction with Cle' Curbo, who won 1st Place in Sci-Fi in 2021 for "In the Garden of Mistress Bloom" (Writers Digest self-published e-book category). The human race must mature to care for our mother earth, and wean ourselves to space for her sake. I love to experiment with my garden of earthly delightful plants. I strive to love all the people all the time, but I am not powerful enough to do so. End right side amygdala. Space alien! is like shouting "squirrel" to a dog. The left side of the amygdala is awakened. Care, dream, plan, do. All thinking and doing is by trial and error. 99 point 999 percent of all accomplishments are prep. Find something you like. Love comes later.
