The seminar largely consisted of the development of two boards. The first of these boards focused on an existing spaceport. I chose to look into the Uchinoura Space Center (UCS) in southern Japan. Much of the information and data was pulled from an extraordinary collection of information: Spaceports of the World.
The second board (below) focuses on the Momentum Exchange Tether, or skyhook. Though we're still a ways off from feasibly building such a system, it could be an early stage in making space travel more affordable for commercial, private, and public use. If you're interested in this technology, check out this video.
