At best, they wou ...

One thing to remember...in a plant such as that one, if something is too heavy or cumbersome, there are resources nearby to help...in space, no one can hear you swearing out of frustration because you ...

Hey, when did Martin Bower's web site go offline?
Has he switched to another domain or something?

Are we cherry-picking here, just a bit?

I thought we were having a discussion, but if you feel that I am nit-picking, dragging things out or even being deliberately obtuse, just say the word.

If the amount of hydrogen is small, why is it a problem that the collector aperture is relatively small?

In order for any collector to be even remotely efficient, it would have to be capable of act ...

I can imagine that being a docking tube.

But the idea of that being a hydrogen collector just doesn't make sense. Along with the fact that there is very little free Hydrogen in interstellar space, ...

Using a nearby ladder would undoubtedly be faster than waiting for a single service elevator, with the exception of moving Kane, the elevators would be counter-productive.

Even based on your own drawings, there are a lot of internal, pressurized rooms and corrido ...

I liked the ladder/lift idea, but wouldn't it make more sense for there to be some sort of service elevator?
