If we trace the whole development path of humanity from the day of its appearance, it is possible to note that even an early man preferred a technocratic development pattern by constantly improving primitive tools. Nowadays, in the century of technical progress, many scientists consider a possibility of locating dangerous technologies outside the Planet due to harmful consequences of their use.
Being in space, they will be completely harmless and will not pose any danger to our flora, fauna and atmospheric layer, which protects the Earth from deadly radiation and cosmic dust. Many of us still do not realize that the borders of our habitation are not limited by the doorstep of our house, but have more extensive horizons.
In our world, everything is interconnected: house, nature, terrestrial biosphere – therefore, all our life and the future of new generations depend on the processes that take place there. Using the outer space for production purposes is a powerful impulse to the development of modern technologies and a bright prospect for the fulfilling life of our descendants on the Earth. In addition, it means huge dividends from the point of view of energy, as the Sun is an inexhaustible source of free energy in an unlimited quantity. In favour of the cosmic industry is the fact that waste from harmful technologies, which produces a detrimental effect on humans and nature on the Earth, will not be able to cause any harm or damage to anybody anymore. If we take a rocket branch – it is rather inefficient nowadays, as it adds to decrease in the protective ozone layer and results in formation of holes in it, which cause great damage to our environment. GPV is the most optimal way for cargo delivery to the orbit space. In order to start any production, first of all, it is required to deliver a big amount of cargo, materials, machinery and operating personnel to the destination. How is it possible to deliver all these to space? Back in 1977, remarkable Russian scientist and engineer Anatoly Yunitskiy announced the idea of creating a general planetary vehicle (GPV). The operation principle of this global transport system is based on the laws of physics. GPV looks like a wheel, which encircles the Earth around the equator or near it, and is mounted on a special overpass with the height from several dozen to a hundred metres. The overpass can be located both on a ground and water surface. Among the expected possibilities of GPV is delivery of millions of tons of cargo in one trip, which present-day cosmic rockets are able to do only in 60,000 years. Economic calculations show that transportation of 1 kg of cargo will cost only $1. In favour of using the GPV for the development of cosmic industry testifies the fact that it does not need powerful expensive rocket engines or great consumption of energy, as the system operates using solely internal reserves. Of no less interest is the fact that the cargo delivery process technically does not cause any impact on the environment, which gives reliable guaranty of ecological cleanliness and safety for this Project.
