I'm a complicated person with alot of talents and hobbies. However there is one that has always driven me despite anything, and that is space. I LOVE space. I want to spend my life travelling the stars in my own ship, with a small crew, doing whatever. Mining, cargo runs, transport, surveillance. I don't much care what it is I do, as long as I'm in space. I'm so obsessed with this singular thought, that I am in the process of designing my own small ship that I have every intention of building. Complete with the technology necessary to make my personal dream a reality. This includes technologies that don't yet exist, or at least not publicly. I've been designing this for over a year now, and before that spent years learning about everything I need to know to do it right. I also feel now is the best time to get into it. It's the dawn of a new space age for humanity. Russia planning to colonize the moon (FINALLY), SpaceX taking space travel to the private sector, NASA having it's successful Mars mission, and more. There is no reason civillians can't join in as well. Possibly even improve where these other groups have failed. Anyone else share my dream?
