Long-Term Thinking

Ballistic capture is an interesting way of getting cargo or other uncrewed vehicles to other planets "cheaply" (crewed vehicles would need greater life support supplies, possibly overcoming any cost-savings). See also: "Buzz" Aldrin's cyclers and the interplanetary superhighway. Any of these methods will work best when we think for and commit to the long-term exploration and colonization of outer space.
