By Alexis Madrigal | Jul 19 2011

Long before NASA's famed Shuttle program came to a close, the biggest space ambitions of many an American had already withered

"We have put men on the Moon. Can people live in space? Can permanent communities be built and inhabited off the Earth? Not long ago these questions would have been dismissed as science fiction, as fantasy or, at best as the wishful thinking of men ahead of their times," a 1975 NASA design study begins.
