Beginning in 1994, with the then-new ability to email multiple people at once via an email list, Frontier Files was an essay collection emailed once per week for a series of 10 weeks to whomever signed up for them on the Foundation’s website. Touching on different topics each week, and written as opinion pieces by various Foundation leaders, the series was based on the current state & future vision of the Space Frontier Foundation, as of 1994-1995.
