Commercial organization proposes affordable space transportation off planet by using existing space shuttle hardware in new ways by using innovation to create more volume and by existing paid for space launch hardware from cancelled aerospace programs such as the Space Shuttle, the External Tank and Solid Rocket Booster (SRB) designs already tested to change the space payload density and use in new combinations for a commercial heavy launch vehicle for the accelerated movement of mankind off this planet. The varied payload density created and lower cost launching of mass and volume from Earth stimulates 20 or more new industries in orbit around Earth and later around other celestial bodies. Increased affordable transportation accelerates the movement of mankind off the planet brings closer the day we have a guaranteed survival of our species. Six on more extinction events have occurred on Earth to date and prior to our evolution to mankinds current development. Our species would not have survived any of the previous extinction events.
