Space exploration must work for everyone! With my plan of building Orbital Trains around Earth for many millions of settlers we’ll soon see how space benefits everyone.


I intend to build space homes on a large scale and let people have them at prices within their budget. I intend to launch a new economy of a new type, one of Orbital Train, one intended to work for all.


Orbital cars are fully autonomous space homes, or spacecraft of a new type where people will live, work and have holidays directly in orbit. By positioning a lot of space cars in a circle around Earth we get an Orbital Train all of whose cars are interconnected.


Our civilization faces crisis upon crisis upon crisis. We need to do something to tackle all of them, otherwise we’ll lose our planet, our cities, our land, fields, our crops, the air and water… We however have the solution: make space exploration work for all of us.


Building Orbital Trains will allow us to create space settlements in orbit large enough to host a population of a major city or even a megalopolis. Therefore our goals include providing all comforts of life in space homes. Our settlers will enjoy the comforts of homes with spacious dining rooms, kitchens, cabinets, bedrooms and have at their disposal goods of advanced quality, ranging from advanced kinds of refrigerators and washing machines to all possible kinds of gadgets and devices to make life better.


Among our goals are to form its own climate and ecosystem inside Orbital Train, to come up with wise and efficient life support systems that will regenerate water and the air, an ecosystem that will use biologically-inspired processes. We have to reduce the weight of spacecars and equipment and goods for living in space dramatically and at the same time achieve a sustainable safe environment.


In one Orbital Train there may be a million or two of space cars, each separate from another. But each of them is linked to next door ones with electromagnetic forces that will prevent their falling apart and from collision with each other as well. Thus a ring composed of space cars is going to be very dynamic and living structure. We are going to be in full control of this kind of structure dubbed Orbital Train.

There are going to emerge many rings of Orbital Trains around Earth and give shelter for humanity, for all people in the world, for every one of us. For the whole global population however large it is going to grow up.


From taking a look at what Orbital Train’s structure presents itself it is clear that the objectives while building one will include making about a million or so space cars at the same time, and putting them together into a whole one. It is the necessity of building a million and more – not fewer – of space cars that acts as a driver for new advances in science, for developing new technologies, and finally – for creating new industries and devising new manufacturing processes.


Making Orbital Train is oriented towards mass production. This naturally leads to the necessity of reducing prices for end customers. Making space cars will let us create new markets. By mass producing them we give rise to creating new jobs as we scale up manufacturing.


From the very beginning we set the objective of designing and building about a million of space cars simultaneously. And also objectives of bringing the prices to a level affordable to an average customer.

In the future as we keep building more Orbital Trains around the globe the prices will continue to decrease and an average space car will be within the same price range for a person as other options, traditional ones, he has when moving house.


In Orbital Trains production in the condition of weightlessness will be brought into reality and this way their building will pay off. This use of Orbital Trains will also boost the development of cutting-edge methods of production in space where weightlessness gives an advantage in many emerging industries, various types of nanotechnologies and many others where you need to obtain materials of higher than top quality and purity.


The first Orbital Trains to be built are going to become home for those involved in the fields of emerging technologies, scientists and researchers, for many of whom their labs are a home currently.


And by intensifying work on designing Orbital Trains we’ll make space technology we aim to develop work for the Earth, to help solve our crises out here.


Now let’s turn to ways to start building Orbital Trains.


We are looking for highly industrialized countries with infrastructure advanced enough to have built plants making orbital trains most efficiently.


Making orbital cars is going to be demanding in terms of technologies involved, in terms of scientific potential of the country, in terms of skills of highly qualified manpower.


Countries that do their best in setting up most advantageous conditions for research and development activities aimed at bringing Orbital Train to life will benefit most.


At the same time the number of new industries Orbital Train is going to give birth to is so enormous that the whole potential of the human race, the overall potential of all industrial countries, has still to be reinforced and multiplied to reach a level where we can really be able to enjoy all the benefits the project can bring about.


This leads us to the point that some of the countries have to take on the lead. We also need some sort of coordination between countries, between industries and the scientific community, between the public and private sectors.


Countries and nations have to distribute their roles sensibly and effectively.


There must be understanding in each of the countries about unseen before opportunities and vistas the building of Orbital Trains opens up.


The level of support from the public in each of different countries will largely define taking on more responsibility, more roles to play and more power by them.


The first step is holding conferences of researchers and scientists. We need to gather together researchers from different backgrounds and have them talk about advances in their areas. One objective of ours – and this cannot be stressed enough - is to come out to an absolutely new level of materials to be used in designs of space cars from the very beginning.


The countries who have invested in research and science can offer much more. Public money has been spent. And many prominent discoveries have been made. Many absolutely new devices are represented by nanometer-size structures that exist only in pioneering labs across the world. Orbital Train is going to make use of these and turn them into working technologies making the investment in them pay off as we want them to be made use of on a mass scale.


Again, making the entire Orbital Train makes sense when we produce as many as about a million or so space cars at a time and put them all together around the globe to form the full ring, one that is going to orbit Earth and never fall or go away. The underlying concept, one of space real estate, comes as a motivating force to attract investments from all those who want to have a space home or a share in it of their own.


And it is orientation towards mass production that will have to make the potential a certain country has achieved pay off.


At the first stage we have the objective to organize scientific conferences, R&D workshops, meetings of professionals in varied fields of knowledge.


And to this end we’ll give a hand to countries who may not be in a position of having that technological potential but are willing to host our conferences. That is, provide facilities, hotels, conference-halls of world class for participants to come from all over the world. These countries are desirable to have favorable climate and understand their role as a host of an international event.


Next, actual manufacturing space cars and all kinds of things to improve life and deliver comfort in space will take absolutely new approaches, new methods of production where we are going to be in control at atomic and sub-atomic levels of processes.


We are going to create absolutely new industries. To provide jobs for highly qualified personnel, to make sure they are paid well and further spend or invest their money – and this way give rise to new jobs. The rest of the populations of the countries involved will also benefit this way as the economies speed up.


Orbital Train will boost the economies of all the countries in a way that will provide sharing knowledge and technologies among all people of the world on an unseen before scale and bring well-being and prosperity to all.

To save the world – and the human race from extinction- scientists propose to drill supervolcanos.


A supervolcano eruption could devastate humanity, the main threat being starvation all over the world during volcanic winter. One way of thinking about ways to prevent the apocalyptic scenario is to make sure we know exactly what is the trigger causing the eruption and to try to turn it off.


So what we can do about the danger and what research we need in order to be able to come up with a working plan - let’s get into it.


The Yellowstone National Park in the US is famous for hot springs. Through them heat leaks out of gigantic magma chambers under the ground. What is of interest is how we can utilize this heat. The prevailing belief is that humanity can calm supervolcanos down by cooling them down: there is a threshold in the amount of heat that accumulates inside a supervolcano after reaching which an explosive eruption happens. Therefore to prevent it from happening we need to make a supervolcano into a geothermal plant.


Lets consider this option. We drill far down inside a supervolcano in multiple places. Then we pump water down under pressure. The water is heated deep inside and comes back in the form of steam. We get energy through using turbines and obtain finally electricity.


Sounds well: instead of having a colossal bomb just underfoot we get electricity and can power whatever we want. But this sketch of what can be developed further into a plan raises a lot of questions.


First of all the very belief that if enough amount of heat builds up this causes an explosive supereruption needs to be checked. We need research on this.


Up to what depth do we need to drill down inside? In how many places?

What are provable ways to ensure we take into account all the magma chambers that are in play?

What amount of water will a super geothermal plant consume?

Under what pressure is the water going to be pumped down?

What are risks of damaging magma chambers in an undesired way and releasing harmful gases?


These are questions going into the subject of research work to be done in a way that ensure independent scientists are involved. No research of this kind has been done by far. So we are going to address to professionals with different backgrounds to find out how we can go about organizing this research. The discussion of the research to be carried out is publicly open.


One of the major challenges is to confront the corrosive power of volcanic setting. No material known can stand up to the high acidity and liquids in magma for long enough. Water pipes are not going to last for long and this alone makes any plan to harvest heat from supervolcano almost impossible to implement.


Any of this kind of plan is highly likely to come to a sticky end and effort to go to smoke without having developed absolutely new materials able to withstand the severe corrosive conditions inside magma chambers.


We face unprecedented technological challenge to create long-lasting reliable materials of absolutely new type. Let’s take on this task and get these materials developed.  First we can turn to nanotubes made from carbon and explore them as well as other options to be able to build on them needed machinery to be used in volcanic magma chambers.


We organize an expedition towards Yellowstone Park; we have to do it right now. If you are someone who is going to take part in it let you know it is the most dangerous adventure on the Earth,  and the time to go there is now. Join Orbital Train community on G+.

As my mission on the Earth is to show humanity a way to stars we are going to build Orbital Trains around the planet and let billions settle in over there, on orbit.  My mission would not be completed without Space Musical in which people will find themselves flying to stars. And the first episode takes place in Yellowstone.


Volcanism is the very mass killer who has been behind all mass extinctions on the Earth in which entire species of animals and plants died out. The disaster is underway and humankind in next in line. What has happened to others will happened to us unless we find ways to harness the power rising up from the depth. The objective of expedition is to start arranging thing this way.


If supervolcanos like that awakening deep below Yellowstone Park are to be turned into geothermal plants, electricity should go to our plants where space cars for mass space settler will be produced, shouldn’t it? Besides this spot in North America we have some about 20 of them over there. They are also going to be made into plants. I want the research also to find out friendly to environment ways to operate over there.


Our goal is to make our way to stars so let's go ahead and let brilliant artists gather together in Space Musical and sing about it to make sure the whole humanity has got the message. The scenario of Space Musical is the scenario of you getting to space.


Love will save the world.

First of all, let me ask you a question. Why do most people not live in a presidential way?


I daresay most perhaps lack imagination, not money. Now let me defend the point made. And let me put this in this way: we perhaps have to gather developers, ambitious ones, and create a brain network, a mass one, to have people plugged in so that they see directly in their mind all those things modern technology can deliver and make affordable to everyone.


Building a network where people’s minds, not computers, are linked up to each other is a step in the direction developers’ ambitions may be satisfied with, as this is a step into a future where we want to have abilities to construct the world around us by effort of mind.


As we all live in times when the whole of humanity is going to move house and settle in outer space – to live in Orbital Trains – we can use the power of thought to present people a way of life everybody can afford in space before long most visually.


Building Space Trains around the Globe shall go along with creating a brain network for all.


Look! Have a look at a car across the street. And ask yourself: what held back people who lived a hundred years ago from having such a car? Lack of imagination? Or lack of money?


Things undreamt-of a century ago are ubiquitous today, everyone can afford them. And they are not even looked upon as luxury. Just things to live.


If we are to survive as the human race and make outer space our home, we have got a goal to let people – everyone – see how they can have in the near future things unthinkable today. And the best way to deliver them rich life is to let them have a new kind of mindset, one where you are god . But what is it that’ll bring about this?


Building mass brain network, connecting minds of people through it, and advancing technologies to read, send, receive and share thoughts is thus a means of reaching a better life for billions. A life even presidents can’t dream of, have and afford now that they don’t use the power of imagination at full. None of the rich has had in his imagination an idea of building a network like this, a space where you are at the center of universe you create by yourself.


But what we want above all is to let ordinary people see in their minds a vast range of opportunities to improve their lives, and setting their minds to what they see suit them better, get moving ahead to have it in their possession.


Building up such a network is not an easy thing to do, and is going to be a real feat even for a best team of developers with ambitions. The objective able to satisfy our ambitions and the objective achievable if we pull together.


So the first thing to do is to rethink what is valuable. Let everybody answer the question to himself: what makes things so valuable? And the task of our team is to build a brain network so that people who are signed in can see in their mind a world full of opportunities.


And the first thing people are going to see is a way of life they have dreamed and deserve. A way of life in Orbital Trains – a way of life at the next level of human evolution if it happens to come – can only be feasible if advances in technologies have been made to create living room over there in outer space.


We cannot make people want to set off for Space through linking up to their minds using the network to come.


But what we can do is present all advances in technologies merged into a whole to give birth to an absolutely new, fresh and unthinkable-of before lifestyle and create an absolutely new thing of new value.


So if we set creating a brain network for billions a priority and pull together we’re made.

Again, we can’t make people want to leave for space, but through connected minds we can prompt the process of sharing thoughts so as to wake people’s imagination.


Through direct mind vision people will see themselves rich and prosperous, they’ll see all those truly valuable stuffs they want to have. And in this precisely way we, developers of new lifestyle, will come to know what there is the demand for.


We will come to know what things people want to have, how they see they are going to use them. We’ ll see unprecedented opportunities to brighten up lives of everyone knowing what he or she is up for. Let’s talk about this invaluable knowledge. There’s plenty of it to come. Much more than men could ever express in words, gestures, drawing pictures or using other means they used to, other than pure mental activity and direct interaction between minds. We will need more advanced ways of sorting these mountains of knowledge out. How do we go about it?


One way of doing well here is thinking about what people as a race will need as a species destined to live in space and enjoy having got to the next level in its evolution. And the point is: to create a mass market for all those people of space cars for them – and with that getting around to having Orbital Trains, these space homes for billions, long trains of them around the Earth, - we need to have got an unimaginable lot of things. There are plenty, a huge multiplicity of things. The number is so incredibly high it is impossible to go about their design and manufacturing through any conventional means we used to at the present time level.


Living in space and enjoy having new living space will require lots of absolutely new things interacting with people and each other in innumerate ways to add difficulty to design, developing and planning. To this end, for developers and makers  to manage the process of creating these products people are really going to need, enjoy and appreciate it will be imperative to have a brain network and have staff in it.


On the other hand, customers have to speed up their wanting and longing for things, their passing from one desire to another, having the desires understood in unmistakable way – and along with that they have to see how they can actually get these things.


Through getting plugged into a brain network people will be able to think over their needs and demand for as many things and at as high speed as have not been possible ever before. Then they can send their thoughts of things they have this way mentally modeled – again at ever increasing rate allowing refining desires, - and see – again in their minds – how the process of actual making and delivering is getting along. What our customers need are highly customized and personalized things the way in which they – lots of them – are going to improve lives not even being able to be fully understood through any means used to.


The brain network will connect two parts, customers and producers which is one way of thinking of what it does, a way used to.


It  will make dreaming of valuable things and lifestyle more efficient, in more precise terms with encompassing a more vast range of things. It will enable people with artificial imagination and there will emerge new markets with a variety of providers of brainpieces, brain networking devices and sevices and whatever it takes to do well in a world where brain power matters. Which is yet another way of thinking of it in terms used to. Brain network goes beyond it and the only way to realize how it is going to be part of our life is to be part of it. Creating it is not only about advancing technology but also letting humanity live on. It is also about having an individual - every one of us - developing.


Our developers face an unprecedented challenge. The challenge is to create something so valuable as to make up for lack of imagination in most of us and make most people part of a new world of rich opportunities for everyone never seen before.


If you are some one wanting to join the community of developers facing most impossible challenge, join us! Much more is to come.

We are going to create a musical in which trains spring skywards – directly into the sky – with people dancing and singing in them.


First a train rides through different countries. People in it sing their national songs  and dance national dances. They get on the train and ride farther singing and dancing in it. New wagons keep being added to the train.


Then, once the train is filled with passengers, heroes of the musical,  the whole train soars upward and springs skywards.  The train with those singing and dancing in it pierce through the atmosphere and is flying up to where outer space begins.


In outer space the train continues to fly, now orbiting its way around the planet, continents and oceans left below.


The musical continues. As people on Earth see that our orbital train has belted the globe up, they begin to dance and sing. People of each nation gather together, their streams coalesce  and float to plants in ever–growing streams, dancing and singing. There in the course of action they build new wagons, join them together into new trains, all the way dancing and singing.


New trains set off to travel across countries, taking onboard new passengers of different cultures in their national costumes, dancing and singing in their national way.


Now plenty of trains gather speed. They grow; new wagons being added. Then trains one after another begin to jump into the sky. They fly skywards from each and every geographical location with their crew keeping singing and dancing.


Trains fly into orbits and keep belting Earth up, winding up and wrapping Earth into multiplicity of ribbons around it.


Now plenty of space trains follow their different – one above another – orbits. They rotate around the planet, changing their form, speed and direction of movement, creating stunning scene around Earth. People of Earth, now residing in orbital trains in outer space, keep singing and dancing, the ribbons of trains themselves dancing in the rhythm of a new reality.


To be continued… (In the next episodes: travelling in space trains to another stars and planets.)

Orbital Train is to change a lot of things around us. This project is about technologies Orbital Train will bring about and things to come in our life along with it.


As we build Space Civilization for Billionsand make advances in the whole lot of technologies this will bring changes into every area of life. And this makes other different areas develop to catch up with what's going to come to being through advances in space technologies.


And this project has the aim to develop technologies needed to build Orbital Trains. We also have the aim to develop many other technologies the building of Orbital Train will pull behind it to change life of people all over the world to the better.


What’s Orbital Train? It is space cars – lots of them – forming a ring around the globe, all cars being connected with each other with electromagnetic force so as to have all the way around Earth the like of space highway with multiple lanes with space cars enough in number to give home for the whole of humanity.


We have the power to build home where has been emptiness!


We have the power to save the world from extinction!


Are you with us?


Today we have to advance technologies in many different areas to make Orbital Train and life in space possible.


We also have to face the reality that having a whole space civilization with its advanced tecnologies will change life of people dramatically and in an unprecedented way - both on Earth and in space. Thus we also have the goal to increase the preparedness of people to come into possession of things and power they haven't possessed before.

Orbital train, Part one


People from all over the world should look upon the orbital train as a means of investing their money and acquiring in return their property – or their share of property – in outer space.


As we are going to have built a long standing permanent construction in space capable of keeping its position in space and offering safe housings, this all can be looked upon as a game changer.


Unlike regular spacecraft and satellites the orbital train is going to offer a bit more real opportunity to invest in space.


The power of the free market has to be awakened and come ... more

How people can reliably invest their money in outer space.


We are going to build a ring of a space train around the Globe orbiting the Earth and residing there as long as it serves its purpose.


The structure of this orbital train is that of partly a ring of small moons orbiting a planet and partly a chain consisting of many wagons linked more or less together.


Astronomically, the way Earth can have the orbital train around it is much the same Saturn has its rings. Its movement is governed by the laws of celestial mechanics.


What is more important for all people living on the Earth – for every single one – is that the function of the orbital train is to serve as part of a protective construction which aim is not less not more to secure life on our planet. We all face an upcoming disaster from outer space and have to fend it off spurring research, technology and cooperation.


We are also going to provide as safe a dwelling for people on orbit as possible, dwelling comprising all technologies possible and impossible to give people there so much needed living space.


The key characteristic of the orbital train is that we are going to operate it as a whole one.


As we intend to belt the globe up with a chain of wagons we have to maintain it as well. We have to look after it: upgrade it by inserting new wagons into the chain and removing old ones out of it, the whole construction keeping being a whole one.


The next step towards understanding what an orbital train is and how it works includes the conception of orbiting.


Every single link in the chain, every wagon is orbiting its movement being consistent with the movement of neighboring links or wagons. By doing so the whole belt or ring – the whole orbital train – keeps in its place.


But when we say that the train and its constituent parts keep its position it doesn’t mean it hangs at some certain place or point on the Earth above it. It means the whole construction keeps orbiting moving in a circle and is never going to leave far from Earth or fall down.


The same thing happens with Saturn’s rings, speaking broadly, but the latter need much more good handling to be what we, people of Earth, need nearby our planet to be capable of defending life here.


The world has never known such a level of collaboration between regular people, professionals, scientists and enthusiasts, companies, institutions and individuals like this in effort to reach and hold a new level of civilization the human race really deserves after having so many millions and millions of years of sufferings, wars and disasters.


A greater – a much more greater disaster – is coming from the bowels of outer space. And the least we, humans, must do is to be on watch. The least what the orbital train is to do is help us in that, helping observe, hear and watch what is going on in outer space where our tiny planet is lost.


The goal of our movement, - our association of individuals, teams and organizations – is to take the challenge. To present the way of living in space for all humans. The goal of our broad technical coalition is to present a means of creating living room in outer space and keep it safe.


For this to become true we are going to develop and launch into orbit plenty of wagons, or space cars, put them together in one train around the globe and present physically a kind of dwelling that is first safe for long-term living in space for humans and second is able to reside in space perpetually.


There are also a number of goals that will help our Earth become more efficient in providing safety and reliable living conditions for people as a whole as a habitable planet. The goals associated with our project are due to be laid out and discussed openly at full as well.


The whole of the orbital train can be looked upon as a kind of space real estate as it’s going to be situated in orbit for an indefinitely long time, whether or not housing provided.


Unlike regular spacecraft and satellites the orbital train is a more or less permanent construction which is meant to keep its position by design.


Spacecraft and satellites we used to can be put into orbit, their altitude can be lowered or heightened, they can be taken out of orbit, each being a single object not connected with others altogether.


Unlike a single object like an ordinary spacecraft or satellite our wagons are thought and designed to be all linked to each other with the most strong power known – by strong electromagnetic force – throughout all the train’s length.


The whole of the orbital train – a hoop or ring – is of the form that shall cover all the way above the planet’s surface much like one coil covers a ball on which it is wound. And there will be much more coils, much more trains around the globe than only one to provide housing enough for all people and to build a wholly new civilization.


When speaking of the length of the orbital train distances comparable to or a bit greater than the length of the equator take place.


Basically we are interested in maintaining more or less firm a ring-like construction – a big ring put on the planet – but owing to different and ever-changing conditions at different points of its trajectory we need also flexibility when operating it, with the electromagnetic force becoming the best solution to combine the firmness and the flexibility properties.


Does all said above mean that people of the Earth need not be worried about a possibility that the orbital train or a part of it can likely fall down onto earth? We are subjected to so many factors and risks that there is no absolute guarantee against anything.


But what we need for our planet is a protection from the challenges our civilization faces and which can merely wipe out life from the face of the Earth causing unseen ever catastrophes deadly for all living things on the planet, in the air, on the land and in the ocean.


And the orbital train is going to become a backbone for more sophisticated and advanced protection systems which aim is to protect our lives and which are intended to stand up for us as long as we, the whole civilization does stand up for itself.


This all means that from the very beginning we are going to build a long standing construction with a complex of measures to keep it being upgraded constantly. With this in mind, inspired with this aim our engineers shall become best fit for performing the job.


Nobody knows exactly what the future and outer space hold for us and what to expect in our way. And the people of the Earth have legitimate right to be concerned.


We are interested for this reason in getting involved more mechanisms of control and monitoring, groups including professionals and independent observers being ones of them.


But what is the most important and efficient among many of mechanisms helping us on our way is the power of free market.
