Re: SPACE: Why so much EVA on ISS?

Interesting discussion. I'm going to use the ISS as part of the space
industrialisation scheme in my roleplaying campaign, so all this is
very useful to me.

I will likely have to bend things a bit to make it work; I guess it is
unlikely that it will still be up in the 2040's (solved by attaching a
ion enging kludge to maintain the orbit), and I wanted to have a
shuttle around but no serious space program, so I had to assume a
pork-barrel project resurrecting the VentureStar but just producing a
few for the government-owned Nasa Corporation.
