Abstract

This chapter examines macro-projects to be deployed in outer space. A feasibility study is used to analyze the deployment of such projects in extraterrestrial realms. Moreover, the author argues that these projects will have substantial socio-economic and political impacts on the international community of nations. Deploying permanent human facilities in space, mining planetary surfaces, asteroids, and a host of other activities will require the use of macro-projects. These macro-projects will be complex by nature. They will require the use of human and technical networks for their completion. All that can be done. It can be accomplished by using the skills and talents of people coming from a variety of ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds.
