The ideas of K. E. Tsiolkovsky on orbital space stationsThe concepts presented by K. E. Tsiolkovsky concerning the construction of orbital space stations are cited. Tsiolkovsky, a Russian scientist and founder of astronautics, substantiated these ideas at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Considered settlements outside the earth were proposed feasible using solar energy. The substance of numerous asteroids would be used as construction materials for space settlements and rockets. Extraordinary farsightedness was shown by Tsiolkovsky when comparisons of his projects with those of modern orbital stations are made.
