Message 2 of the Frontier Files

Welcome again to the Space Frontier Foundation’s

E-Mail Essay Series.

We shall start by introducing ourselves. This is our Credo:

The Space Frontier Foundation is an organization of people dedicated to opening the Space Frontier to human settlement as rapidly as possible.

Our goals include protecting the Earth’s fragile biosphere and creating a freer and more prosperous life for each generation by using the unlimited energy and material resources of space.

Our purpose is to unleash the power of free enterprise and lead a united humanity permanently into the Solar System.

Fairly high sounding, isn’t it. Well, we take it seriously. When it comes to the Frontier, we fight for what we believe and against those things we see as diverting or wrong. This makes us unusual in the space field, where governments call the shots and create the plans.

That’s because we believe that people open Frontiers, not governments. The Foundation stands for you and your children’s right to do just that. We believe that given the right circumstances it could happen in your lifetime.

We can begin to open the Frontier of space right now!

Stay tuned. In future messages we will discuss (1) how it could happen; (2)the policies and technologies that can make it happen; (3) how governments are not only ignoring such innovations, but is in many cases responsible for their failure or destruction, and (4) what the Foundation is doing to change that.

If you want to support the Foundation’s fight, send at least $25 ($35 outside the US) to:
