I just had an idea /sci/entists thag should have been implemented a long time ago, the thing keeping extremely large ships from leaving earth is weight, right? Well then, why don't we just assemble the ship in parts in orbit instead of putting it all together here on earth? Is it too expensive?

>>7807288
That actually kind of makes sense unless you intend to carry things on the ship, because then you'd need another ship big enough to bring that stuff out to orbit
