An aerospace hardware derelict item is salvaged in space, modified, and reused to provide manned facilities in orbit. The hardware packages added onto the salvaged discarded item enhances its value, and incorporates at least the subsystems required to effectively reuse portions of previously discarded launch vehicle components, and other derelict objects in space. The hardware, and technique used reduces the cost of launching comparable hardware to orbit, because of the reuse, and provides a human habitation in orbit. The salvaged items include the exter...
[What is claimed is:] [1.]salvaging launch hardware;creating a rigid structure from salvaged launch hardware, the salvaged launch hardware occupying most of the volume of the rigid structure; androtating the rigid structure, thereby providing centrifugal gravity in space, wherein the creating of the rigid structure includes positioning two or more pressurized volumes parallel to a long axis of the rigid structure and at different distances from a rotation point of the rigid structure, such that gravity levels within the pressurized volumes differ from on...
