The Space Settlers' Society

Would You Like To Live & Work in Space...
Or just have a burning desire to go up and spend a week or more in an orbital hotel sometime in your lifetime? Then you've surfed into the right place
- The Space Settlers' Society Home Page.

Founded in 1980, we're Europe's longest running grass roots space-politics society, but we also have our own long term plan to take our members up to live and work in space. Until the day comes for that, we support all ventures calculated to bring down the cost of space travel, and to make it possible for the general public to participate, such as space tourism.

Future Settlers' Interstellar Travel Circa 3001?

I originally planned to write a good faq sheet on space settlement for this site, but then I read Mike Combs' excellent faq sheet, available free of charge on the "Island One" site, and realized there was no way I could better that. Accordingly, if you don't understand any of the terms used on this site, don't know what an O'Neill habitat satellite is, or whatever, go to our links pages, press the Island One logo, and you'll be taken instantly to their site where you can get yourself a copy, read it, and come back here knowing what we're talking about. The Island One site and Mike's excellent faq sheet are both recommended by the Space Settlers' Society. - Andy Nimmo.
