SUMMARY

The Foundation for the Future is pioneering America’s success in space through visionary space transportation and infrastructure projects. The Foundation for the Future is leading the advance of the United States’ space infrastructure development by unifying civil space agency and federal policy objectives, and by connecting a community of supporters and companies to the vast opportunities space infrastructure development provides.

WHO ARE WE?

We are a scientific education and public works advocacy foundation, dedicated to one goal: the creation of a space infrastructure administration. This will be a public-private partnership to create jobs in the new space economy, new opportunities for innovators, and ultimately space access for all.

 

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Over the next year, we are commissioning research, hosting events, creating educational material, and developing prototypes, all to build a visionary space infrastructure network. All our research and education efforts focus on delivering near-term impact, specifically jobs, investment, and opportunities for US workers and companies.
 

Our research includes topics such as infrastructure bank designs, locations for advanced materials foundries, the economic impact of spaceport authorities, and the effect of multiple space- infrastructure-focused competitions.

WHAT CAN WE PROVIDE?

The Foundation educates various sectors on visionary economic and developmental projects, including but not limited to federal spaceport authority options, advanced space access technologies, novel financing of space programs, and benefits of infrastructure applications in Earth orbit, cis-lunar space and beyond. Audiences include elected officials, senior Congressional staff, US government officials, business leaders, academia, and space innovators.
