are starting the mass production of
small spacecraft with the aim of bringing costs down to reasonable
levels. Current target cost is £40,000 per kilo per orbital
prices) based on currently available technology, existing products and
manufacturing techniques. We aim for an eventual launch rate
of 50 per year from each base. Obviously we are starting at
launch rate depending on your individual needs and do not expect to see
the benefits of mass production for at least five years.
We hope to eventually make orbital launches of up to 500kg at a target cost of £250,000, based on the H2Leo study, again based on currently available technology, existing products and
Our aim is to become a part of the mass colonisation space over the next 50
years. Probability theory suggests that this may be all the
time we have to get a mass of people into space (See
Richard Gott III, New
Scientist, 8 Sept 2007).
Currently only 100's of astronauts have entered space and most have
returned safely. Soon many more will follow through the
activities of such companies as Virgin Galactic. Our aim is
to start the spread of humanity across the universe rather than simply
visit as tourists. Initially our aim is to test life support
systems but eventually we intend to begin the terraforming of celestial
bodies to allow colonisation.
We are also aware that a mass- produced and low-cost system may be of
enormous benefit in lifting low-value freight to orbit to service space
stations and colonies on the Moon and Mars, as proposed by the
American, Russian and Chinese governments. This will be an
early return for investors.
Once our principal business is established, we aim to re-invest profits
in larger craft capable of assembling communities of around 70 people
of all ages as colonists living on and inside asteroids.
These asteroids will then be used as self-propelling craft for
interplanetary and interstellar travel. Some of the most
influential leaders of the space community's latest direction appears
to agree with our aims (See
Craig Covault, Aviation
Week 18 Jan 2008).
Should you wish to become a founding volunteer and/or benefactor we shall be happy to hear from
you. How you will be involved in space travel will be explained
once you have completed a confidentiality agreement which you must sign and return to us by post.
