This is a blog primarily about space settlement. That is, building permanent human communities in space. If you don’t know about space settlement, google it. You’ll love it.

Tom Marotta thinks about space a lot. He works in the space industry (sort of) and writes papers about space. In fact, he wrote a book with Al Globus all about an easier way to build space settlements. Conveniently, it’s called The High Frontier: An Easier Way. It won the NewSpace 2019 Vision for Space Award.

Tom is married with two kids and one more on the way. Besides space he also likes pizza, running, marksmanship, his friends, trains, and America. He wants to get into 3D printing and farming.

Anything you read on this site is Tom’s opinion alone and should not be construed as the position of the US Government in any whatsoever.
