NASA Design Facilities - (BTT) On a cool, quiet morning, a rocket will make its lone departure from Earth. Off to where? Nobody knows, except a select few involved in the design and development of this new spaceship and its cargo. It's goal is simple. Colonize. This new Deep Space Habitat is a small but important step. It's interconnecting modules allow for easy assembly and operation. It will become the staging point of exploration and innovation. Just imagine, it's a boring Sunday evening on Earth, but on Mars, a small rover from the Deep Space Habitat finds a rich copper vein running through the cliff of an old lava flow. The concept of "galactic mining" is not far off.
