What if you could live on a space station comfortably? What if it was a hotel-casino, a place to play, see the stars, see the Earth in the distance? Have a thrill of your life? Would you do it?
That’s the setting of my upcoming science fiction mystery series — set about 100 years into the future, in the era of space stations around the Earth, and around other planets, a Mars colony, and a Moon one too.
I have been having so much fun researching my series, including following some great resources online.
One of my favorites is Space Decentral https://spacedecentral.net/. They’re building a decentralized space program, connecting thousands of engineers, scientists, and future astronauts, to devise and fund next-generation space initiatives.
I really fell in love with their article “How I designed a space outpost” by Suzi Bianco, adapted from Suzi’s master’s thesis — which I’m now reading!
