This orbital airship, a part of the Ascender series of JP Aerospace, connects earth to the great beyond. But, where do we go when the Ascender gets us to orbit? Do we meet a hotel in orbit? That would be nice. Better if we could join in a thriving community in space. A community that could travel to Luna or Mars in comfort, see sights along the way, have gravity, eat well, sleep well, play and work hard. Such is the #Spinship shown above the earth. In this orbit, it meets the ascending orbital airship, and transfers cargo and passengers. The spinship communities in earth orbit and out to translunar, rely on space mining to build products needed for a thriving economy, including trade with mother earth. Later this century, ships similar to these may take us to the stars.
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.
