There is a lot of talk about simple family seasteads, but does anyone honestly think that they are feasible at the current stage? IMHO, currently a single family seastead is totally unrealistic and what this organization and its supporters should concentrate is not on building small seasteads of even large ocean based cities, but on building research stations that will test all of the technologies that will be necessary to build seasteads at some point in time. It should be similar to space colonization. Before we had the ISS in space there were many satellites and temporary space stations sent to space to test the tech. The ISS itself is a research station that will allow us some day to build cities in space.The Mars Society with its Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) is a great example of an organization that does something constructive with it’s limited resources. Could we build something similar to MDRS?
