Open Source Engineering for Space Flight

Today the President of the United States stands with NASA, the ISS partners, and private industry to further NASA's mission to extend the space frontier for all of us.

On the internet, engineers have been making progress and gaining interest in ultra light space flight projects that cap spending at many orders of magnitude less than that required for human and public sector space flight missions.

We have been studying and learning how to do this work in ways compatible with, and complementary to other parts of our lives and sectors of our societies.

We recognize the role that open source engineering has played in everyone's lives online, and the similar potentials it may have for the expanding space economy.
