It's going to take some doing--but spaceflight will be more TVA than MSN. Some of you have doubtless seen my posts over the years where I have argued for a return to HLLVs like Saturn V, Ares V SLS--and have seen overt hostility towards heavy lift--even though it is a proven way to go beyond Low Earth orbit.
It isn't sexy--and folks in the alt.space Ayn Rand side of things have this gov't phobia and believe Moore's law applies to rockets.

I'm an infrastructure for its own sake guy--and this gets mistranslated as 'pork.'

Now some of you may have heard about this: http://www.examiner.com/article/scienti ... of-diamond
But we don't have to go as far:

Now we know this planet got knocked on its side, right?

And we know it has dark--say--carbon rings? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rings_of_Uranus

I'm hoping that there may be diamonds knocked into orbit. If so--these might be the most easily harvested items in space--more so than ore from asteroids.

Might be a good place to start. This is how we will go: http://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2012/01/ ... le-return/
