Cis-Lunar – “The Vision for Space Exploration” – Paul Spudis

In a series of 5 articles Dr. Paul Spudis laid out a Vision for Space Exploration  for proceeding forward with a rational and sustained development of the infrastructure from Earth to the moon.  His five-part series describes the history of the plan and suggests what the government’s role should be to provide the assistance for the development of this “trans-continental railroad” of the 21st century.  He has followed this with 2 excellent papers the  ”Mission and Implementation of an Affordable Lunar Return”   and  ”Using the Resources of the Moon to Create a Permanent Cislunar Space Faring System” which relies upon the utilization of lunar water for in-space rocket propellant.
