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.

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.

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.
