EarthSavers of Space
Working on strategies, concepts and procedures to find, classify and render harmless potentially dangerous asteroids before they might hit Earth and cause mass extinction – also to analyze them and harvest, process, and utilize their precious resources in a safe orbit.
Developing ideas and technological approaches to harness the abundant and 24/7 available power of our Sun, solving most pressing energy issues on our planet’s surface. Taking pressure off Earth’s environment and sustainably unlocking new potential for our civilisation’s progress.
Theoretical exchange and practical research and development aiming on a first demonstrator to test if a shade in Earth’s orbit might be able to reduce the harming effects of global warming and buy our home planet a bit more time to solve man-made problems causing or adding to it.
Special Evening Event
The Space Cowboy Ball
SPACE PARTY- AWARDS
Sat. Nov. 7, 2020 @ 7:30 PM, Bullock Texas State History Museum
Join us as we and our Celebrity Master of Ceremonies Cas Anvar (Captain of the Rocinante on “the Expanse”) honour the year’s best science fiction movies and TV shows at a cool and very special event, featuring artists, musicians, food and dance. We will also honour one of Texas’s top space educators and have a very special guest TBA (last year it was Jeff Bezos!)
It’s 2119. You’re invited to a formal affair at a space colony on the Moon or Mars. What on Earth (or space) will you wear? The first three Space Cowboy Balls were a rousing success. The 2019 edition will be a must-attend event of both the space and Austin celebrity year.
Space has been too boring for too long. We are committed to both the technology and culture of tomorrow. From tux to tech, all are welcome to our celebration of the future. It’s a little like a second Halloween, this time for grown ups, space geeks and cos play gamers. From the Expanse to Serenity, Star Wars to Star Trek, and all the best science fiction futures in between, come join us on a micro-Burning Man rocket ride. We’ll give out some awards, eat some great barbeque and then we Party!
