Welcome to the National Space Society Blog

Welcome to the National Space Society Blog.

The purpose of this blog is to engage in a public dialog on the importance of space development and exploration for humanity’s future.   It is the mission of the  National Space Society to promote social, economic, technological, and political change in order to expand civilization beyond Earth, to settle space and to use the resulting resources to build a hopeful and prosperous future for humanity.

As a long time member of NSS, I fully agree with this mission. In fact, I feel so strongly about it that I became a chapter activist performing public outreach in my community and have volunteered extensively on behalf of NSS over the years.  This year I was elected to the NSS Board of Directors and hope to make a positive contribution to the National Space Society’s vision of people living and working in thriving communities beyond the Earth.

Join us and make a difference.  If I can, so can you.

Ad Astra,

Jim Plaxco, NSS Director
