This petition still needs 10,000 signatures in the next 4 days to be considered - it got 5,000 yesterday. With your help we can do this people!
UPDATE: We did it troopers! I hope this actually happens. Not because we need a super weapon but because of all the jobs it will create and to have a station of that sort could really jump start us into actual space exploration. Instead of being a U.S. project, this could be an amazing international project. Now we just need to build a space elevator to start moving materials up affordably and start construction!
