Start Project
Orbital Station
In orbit facilities that serve the purpose of handling the traffic of goods and people between Earth and Mars.
Martian spacesuits will have enormous challenges to overcome if they are to be mass produced at a reliable quality.
Modular Habitats
In the early phases of the colony bootstrapping modular habitats are an essential asset.
Mars Farming
Farming on Mars requires large surface area. We need a cheap and reliable way to build greenhouses.
Spaceport Ops
Up to 1000 Starships are expected to depart from Earth per launch window. A proper spaceport is essential.
Surface Rovers
In the early stages of the colony we will need multipurpose autonomous vehicles able to execute all kinds of tasks.
Projects updates & Achievements
Project milestones offer a quick overview of the progress made by the development team.
Objectives and interactive documents enable new users to quickly onboard.
Teams can join forces to develop large scale projects.

Urban Planning
Open Source
Any topic ranging from hardware, software and engineering down to philosophical questions about the future of the human race in space is equally suitable to start a new project.

Project pages contain all the essential tools and information needed by your team to work online from any place in the world (even from space).

We are happy to announce that our proposal documentation is days away from being available for you to review
Project leaders can refine the scope of the project by setting up objectives. Clearly defined objectives help contributors better organize their efforts.

Objectives that have been already fulfilled are listed in the news feed. Think of them as a timeline of the project. Use them to get community feedback.
The most active and influential community members become leaders. Leaders setup goals and help new and veteran users find the right solutions.
Meetings are essential for progressing the project agenda. Organic schedules and a rate of at least one meeting per week increase members participation significantly.
Financial Support
The more successful and popular a project is the more likely is to secure funding. The best teams have a strong chance of becoming successful aerospace businesses.
Workspaces are lists of the online tools needed by teams to carry out their operations. Publishing these links is essential for quick onboarding of new users.

All sorts of tools such as task management, event scheduling, document sharing and live chatting can be listed for quick access.
Publishing the most important documents makes the work of the team a lot more visible.

Teams can attract outside support by publishing their documents. Contributors can easily review them and provide helpful feedback.
