Space Base New Zealand

Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom


SpaceBase is a purpose driven consultancy focused on democratizing access to space. Our vision is to live in a world where space plays a critical role in addressing planetary challenges, and provides the pathway for unlimited resources and economic benefits.

We see a world in which all people have the opportunity to participate in the space industry on an equal footing, in accordance with their talent and ambitions. However, there is a technological divide between space faring nations and the rest of the world. Our mission is to address this challenge by catalyzing space industries as a service in emerging and developing countries.

“Remember, the space settlement dream was born in you so that you would strive for its fulfillment in this generation, not defer it to the next. It was, and is, a call to you to take some action in this lifetime, and if you are not meant to see it through to its completion, then you must at least lay a foundation on which those who will follow can build.”

Alternative Planetary Futures Institute

Victor V. Motti

Executive Director

The Alternative Planetary Futures Institute (ApFi) was founded in Washington D.C. by Victor V. Motti and Jerome C. Glenn to be a planetary think tank.

We are nonprofit and non commercial.

We have research and advocacy programs focused on Planetary Consciousness (See a definition here)

This is accomplished under the leadership of our world-class scientific council and by the contribution of a volunteer planetary creative council (groups of individuals and organizations) around the world that connect planetary views and futures research to help expand imagination about the possible futures and build preferred futures.

For All Moonkind

Dr. Michelle Hanlon

Co-Founder and President

For All Moonkind, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to protect each of the six human lunar landing and similar sites in outer space as part of our common human heritage.  In 2018 we were granted the status of Permanent Observer to the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space.

We challenge the international community – sovereign nations, national space agencies and commercial entities – to join us in addressing the void left by current space law in respect of human heritage in space.  Our entirely volunteer team of space lawyers and policymakers are working to develop reasonable and practical protocols that will balance development and preservation and include systems to select, manage and study relevant sites.  In so doing, we seek to promote the exploration and development and open the debate on equally pressing issues of property and resource extraction.

Space 3.0 Foundation

Scott Sacknoff


Beginning with the birth of the sector in the 1950s and 1960s, most space activity was directed by the needs of government. The Space Race and the landing of the Apollo spacecraft on the Moon (Space 1.0) was followed by a multi-decade period dominated by government programs lacking an overall underlying vision and the emergence of the first commercially driven ventures (Space 2.0). Today, billionaries and private investors have begun to shift the conversation, investing significant private funds to challenge the status quo. Space 3.0 represents this new beginning, the next evolution of Space products and services. As we consider a free and open space economy, we need to preserve the past knowledge; define a vision; and encourage, support, and educate those leading the efforts.
