Solar System Life (#22)

Today I would like to think about something I won't be around to experience. The future should include human exploration and colonization of our solar system. What this will look like is still uncertain. Some things about its make-up are somewhat clear. Bases that are either in orbit or on the habitable spheres where possible. The problem of time must be addressed so as to allow for travel between these accumulated outposts. Once a solution for traveling between "solar cities" is arrived at then the problems of long term life-support and scientific exploration and experimentation towards industry may take root. I bring this subject up because it is the natural extension of our natures, to wonder about and explore that which we can examine. The solar system should be the next logical progression in the minds of most humans who become bored or restless with not learning something new.
