Who We Are:
Commercial industries have always been on the leading edge of enabling crewed and uncrewed spaceflight. Today, we stand on the brink of a new space age dominated by the innovation and drive of international commercial space companies. All across the spectrum of the current space industry, commercial organizations are making their mark and are subsequently defining how the future of space will look for mankind. From nanosatellites to launch vehicles, commercial agencies around the world are pushing the boundaries of what is considered to be possible and are subsequently inspiring the next generation of space explorers.

When we think of the term “commercial space,” we don’t just think about the companies around the world who are endeavoring to help propel humanity into the stars. We also think of the principle that all people should have the right to be a part of mankind’s reach into the final frontier. This approach has guided our organizational objectives, which are to:

  • Conduct academic research on the “theory of industrial practice” in the commercial space sector.
  • Organize international and diverse “think-tanks” for commercial space.
  • Make our efforts influential upon decision-makers and widely publicized throughout the global space community.
  • Equip the younger generation with the knowledge, tools and network to be active in the realm of commercial space and space-based entrepreneurship.

Advisory Team:
The advisory team is a group of industry professionals who volunteer their time and efforts to advise and assist the group in all matters pertaining to what we do. In addition to providing their mentorship and counsel, advisors of the past have run blogs, managed wikis, and have served as writers for space-related news organizations. If you are interested in joining the advisory team, please feel free to reach out the co-leads.
