National Space Society

The Cislunar Explorers team is pleased to announce our collaboration with the National Space Society!

The National Space Society (NSS) is an independent, educational, grassroots, non-profit organization dedicated to the creation of a spacefaring civilization.  Founded as the National Space Institute (1974) and L5 Society (1975), which merged to form NSS in 1987 (see merger proclamation), NSS is widely acknowledged as the preeminent citizen’s voice on space.  NSS has over 50 chapters in the United States and around the world.  The society also publishes Ad Astra magazine, an award-winning periodical chronicling the most important developments in space.

We have been working closely with NSS Project Committee Chairman, Dr. Dean Larson, to align our goals with theirs. As part of our efforts, we are working with the NSS to find volunteers to assist with several tasks. You can find more information about what we are searching for on the NSS Cislunar Explorers project page.

The NSS publishes a wonderfully informative magazine, Ad Astra, which will include an article about our spacecraft in its next issue. At around that time, we will be launching our crowd-funding effort, and links to the donation page will be available here as well as on the NSS website. In exchange for NSS helping spread the word of our crowd funding efforts, we will be donating a portion of any CubeQuest space prize winnings to the organization.
