The NSS vision is people living and working in communities beyond Earth and the use of space resources for the betterment of humanity. To achieve these goals, NSS engages in a variety of activities. In addition to our annual International Space Development Conference and our quarterly publication Ad Astra, NSS has established the annual Space Settlement Summit and created the Roadmap to Space Settlement.
The Space Settlement Summit is an invitation-only two-day discussion between key scientists, entrepreneurs, financiers, corporate officers, and government officials on the topic of space settlement. The Summit provides NSS a key position in influencing the thinking of these leaders.
Another noteworthy achievement has been the creation of the NSS Space Settlement Roadmap, now on its third edition and made freely available to the public.
Space settlement advocacy is a core purpose of NSS and the Space Settlement Action Fund was created to enhance NSS' ability to influence the public, business, and government officials on the importance of space in the future of humanity.
NSS is an independent nonprofit nonpartisan educational membership organization dedicated to the creation of a spacefaring civilization. Our vision: People living and working in thriving communities beyond the Earth, and using the vast resources of space for the dramatic betterment of humanity.
