A space program for the rest of us.
What we want to do
- Give more space access to anybody who wants some
- Get more people wanting more space by making space more fun
- Make our world a little healthier, wealthier, and - if possible - wiser in the process.
All without sending anybody to space - at least for now.
What we do
- plan missions to put small satellites into low equatorial orbits for disaster warning, environmental monitoring and emergency communications
- prototype exovivaria - closed ecosystems inside satellites, to be maintained from Earth telebotically, and democratically governed by a global commmunity.
- promote sustainable development in equatorial alpine regions, especially in areas that might someday host projectile space launch.
- study market mechanisms for optimizing all our activities.
Space for fun - but only to SPEC
- Seriously - educating people in the process
- Peacefully - avoiding (ideally even countering) arms proliferation
- Equitably - improving developing-world prosperity
- Cleanly - not degrading (and ideally promoting) environmental sustainability
We call this: "Meeting the SPEC".
