As recent technological developments point to, near term destinations in LEO are set to become "Space Hotels"--small research and lodging facilities capable of supporting a small number of individuals for a short amount of time. Once this happens, the next logical question becomes-- "how will we move forward from today--launching of small hotels into Earth orbit--and move towards larger scale settlement architectures?
