Optimal Solar System Locations for Orbital Habitats

Would be interested in getting feedback on my latest article.

While O’Neill-type habitats can orbit almost anywhere, it’s still the case that some orbits would be more advantageous than others. Where is the prime orbital real estate in our solar system?

Mars surface to aresynchronous orbit

What is the delta-V increment between the surface of Mars and aresynchronous orbit? I found a chart online which makes me feel this would be less than 6 km/sec, but can't do the math.

Why Mars in two parts: What are the compelling reasons to send people to Mars? Are there any compelling reasons to live on Mars?

There's a lot of noise about missions to Mars that lead to colonizing it. I'm not convinced*. Tell me why Mars is the goal.

*I'm very much pro-space colonization, just focused on Luna and O'Neill's vision of the future.

Who should build them?

Who should build the space stations and moon settlements? The seabees a.k.a. Naval Construction Force (NCF).

Those maniacs build bridges while under fire.
