      For space in general, I’d like things to be much closer together – it would make exploring the Universe a whole lot easier. For the International Space Station, I would like to see a part of it (or even a new smaller station) dedicated to solving the many challenges we still face if we want to achieve human space exploration. The international Space Station is an amazing research laboratory for many different scientific fields, but we must develop solutions specifically targeted at allowing humans to live in space for more than two years with minimal resources (power, water, food, oxygen) if we are to venture out into the Solar System.

      I would change it by including me in it! 🙂

      Simon: Hello there! Id like to make getting into space cheaper and more accessible to people. A “Star Trek” future is going to happen before that!
