Jupiter Orbital Transfer/Colonization

With the utilization of a space elevator, the distant reaches of the solar system can finally be prospected for human colonization. This project will determine that the Jovian moon Callisto provides the best chance of establishing a self-sufficient colony based on the geological composition of the moon. By determining the first series of supply missions over a span of 20 years, a base could become self-sufficient for human use. This would expand our knowledge on sustainable practices for interplanetary missions and even here on Earth.
