Many people in the "media" section of this forum seem to be creating a lot of large and pretty cool-looking space stations. How useful are they really though? Near-earth orbit seems to be quite boring to be honest, there's really nothing to do up there. It would be nice if some experiments were added and there were "abandoned" space stations and satellites up there, or other stuff similar to that. None the less, it's currently just blank space. I think such stations would be better suited in the asteroids dimension (and Kuiper belt if you're using GalaxySpace) I really only use space stations as buffer zones between outer space and going back to Earth. I don't really see any other purpose though, unless you just want to build a space station for the sake of building.
