Rycroft, school Member, overseas area collage electronic mail: rycroft@isu. isunet. edu construction at the foundations supplied through the overseas area Station, now partly developed and already in use in low Earth orbit, what is going to be the longer term instructions of human spaceflight? This was once the main query mentioned from many viewpoints - technical, entrepreneurial, governmental, felony - on the 7th Annual Symposium held in Strasbourg, France, early in June 2002. Many principles at the "whys" and the "hows" of our destiny exploration of the ultimate frontier have been recommend in a stimulating surroundings. the original point of view of the foreign area collage (ISU) - specifically an interdisciplinary, foreign and intercultural viewpoint - more suitable either the shows and the discussions. greater than a hundred and fifty humans attended the Symposium, together with the present individuals of the grasp of house reviews type who're attending an eleven month path at ISU. they're younger pros and postgraduate scholars who strengthen in-depth a few a part of the huge Symposium subject of their parallel staff initiatives. Their ultimate studies could be accomplished on the finish of July 2002, and may be released independently. 1 past the ISS: the way forward for Human Spaceflight Keynote tackle: A precis the necessity for a brand new imaginative and prescient E.

Fortunately, the transforming technologies that are emerging today can be applied not just in robotic missions, but also to make possible truly revolutionary new human-robotic mission concepts that can enable visionary new roles for astronauts in the future exploration and development of space. Enabling such applications - making possible new more affordable and safer human/ robotic space systems - is key to our future. Revolutionary materials and advanced design tools can enable new generations of space propulsion and transportation systems - allowing affordable access to Earth orbit and space beyond Earth orbit.

This was impressively demonstrated by both the comparatively short flights using the Spacelab facility in the Space Transportation System ("Space Shuttle") and the long-term spaceflights on the Russian space station Mir. However, access to these facilities was difficult and included only a few people at a time. So consequently the available time had to be shared between being a part-time scientist onboard and a part-time pilot of a 30 Beyond the ISS: The Future of Human Spaceflight space vehicle.

And I share his excitement about our playing a small part at the International Space University (ISU) in helping humanity toward that stupendously awe-inspiring future. I am absolutely certain that the reason that humanity has reached its current level of development is to move into space, with the assistance of artificially-intelligent and genetically-modified life forms of our own imagination and creation, in order to give intelligence, meaning, majesty, and (most importantly) humor to an otherwise meaningless and humorless cosmos.
