    • Matthew J Ormerod

      Degree: BA in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering
      Age: 31
      Matthew is an avid supporter of building the Space Elevator, colonizing Mars, building a mining/manufacturing colony on the moon, and roping asteroids into orbit for additional mining purposes. He strongly supports the idea of a sturdy extraorbital ship for the purposes of transporting materials and personel without having to enter the strong gravity field of a planet or moon. He wants to see space travel and habitation become routine in his lifetime.

                  idea could entrap almost any size asteroid or comet and lead it off its path. I'll gladly send a diagram of this incredibly simple and relatively inexpensive concept. 661-450-7354 Steven Denuccio
