I wanted to live on on the L5 colony, or at least go visit it for a week, when I first read about it in the July 1976 issue of the National Geographic.

It's been nearly 27 years since that article.

Sigh...

The Next Frontier by Isaac Asimov. Paintings by Pierre Mion. Not online, alas.

After all, nothing's worth doing if you can't make an obscene profit on it, right?
