Now I will say I still stand on the idea of building a spaceship already in orbit. Using the space shuttle, we have done it with a space station, I see no reason it can't be done to build a space craft. Aren't aircraft carriers and battle ships built in the water? Seems the larger vessels should be built where they are intended to be. Now, to my knowledge, the entire space shuttle program has been shut down. This makes no sense to me at all. A) you don't even have a way of getting humans and materials into at least a low earth orbit now, and B) if you build a Cruise ship don't you still want shuttle boats to get to it?
Seem to be getting off the subject a little here, I still think that day some 42 years ago will still stand as the greatest accomplishment in Space Exploration History... what ever happened to having goals? Shouldn't Mars be the next step?
