De orbiting from ISS
Our future will include a massive Space Station that is plausibly a full mile in diameter and as thick as we need making it look like a giant disc. Simple rotation would produce one g of acceleration on the outer trim.
Getting down to surface is then a highly desirable objective and we have the capacity to carry thousands of one man life boats able to de orbit. One man boats are likely the best option in practise as well as it can easily be used for random and normal removal as well.
This item shows us that it just may be plausible and a nice alternative to sending up insufficient transports. After all we now have sucessful boosters able to land..
