Benefits are a much larger, better equipped, and safer vessels to live aboard on the long journey from earth to mars and the asteroid belts while using smaller ships to transition from earth and mars to the orbiter.
Of course you would want everyone off prior to the orbit around the sun or Jupiter.
I/m interested in what you think of this concept.
An interesting idea, but I would think arranging an "orbit" that would consistently loop around both the Sun AND Jupiter sounds a bit difficult to arrange. Perhaps others here have some thoughts....
Ulysses does that. It's in a solar polar orbit. Luckily I don't have to try and say that.
