I was thinking of a "what if" scenario on this the other day. What if human space travel had advanced as quickly as possible with no political interfearance? What colonies would there be and where would you like to see them? For me, One on, under or near Venus would be a start, then our Moon, a couple of mineral wealthy asteroids, Mars of course, Titan, Europa, Ceres, Pluto and one or two other moons would complete the starting picture of what could be, and of course earth orbit cities or hotels. From this we could even have a couple of larger space cities, especially with the wealth of resources such a populated system would bring. Too bad it isn't so.

L4 and 5 between any two large bodies tend to be immensely stable; those are good locations for your population centers.
Most certainly on any asteroid large enough to produce at least a dozen space colonies on its own.
Somewhere near each gas giant, but not close enough to deal with its high traffic of asteroids, comets, and moons.

I would like to see of course a colony on Mars, but also on Enceladus to have a base for mining Helium-3 from Saturn, and also a colony on Triton, for mining Helium-3 from Neptune, but also as a gateway for interstellar travel.

Any chance some day, the solar panels will be the roof itself with no shingles needed?
