tomorrow with a
vision for today …
SPACE CORPS believes in a shared vision
and a dream that takes humankind across
our solar system and eventually the stars.
The long path to that destination starts with
Who we are?
SPACE CORPS is a member driven
organization with the expressed goal of
enabling public access to space; conducting
manned and robotic space exploration; and
directly participating in the long-term
expansion of human kind across the stars.
Why are we different?
• Direct Member Participation –members are not merely advocates
but have the opportunity to directly propose, lead and participate as
team members on projects aligned with the organization’s goals.
• For-Profit – we believe sustainable space exploration must
ultimately be based on a vibrant and profitable business model.
• Member Owned – members directly share in the organization's
success by earning credits (convertible to equity) in exchange for
non-monetary contributions including volunteering time, skills, and
talent as well as monetary donations.
• Member Recognition – members are recognized for their
contributions by earning Space Corps ranks, awards, and increasing
• Diversified Approach to Capitalization – we believe achieving our
long-term goals will require diversified sources of capital based on
multiple lines of business and the creativity or our members.
How are we going to do it?
• Inspire fellow dreamers
• Build a passionate member corps
• Create sustainable sources of capital
• Develop a strategy for today that keeps tomorrow’s
dream clearly in focus
• Lead by doing
• Passion, imagination, and fun
And … by building, launching, and conducting
missions in space that further Space Corps’ goals
Inspiring fellow dreamers
• We need to build a large member corps of
likeminded, imaginative, and passionate
individuals that share in a common vision
• Leverage member skills, time, and passion on
real projects that propel our shared vision
• Excite members with increasing levels of
recognition, ability to participate in key decisions,
and eventual professional opportunities to join
SPACE CORPS as a full-time crew members.
