— Ad Astra per Mundus Novus —

A New Era for Space Exploration

The Homo Spaciens Foundation is advocating for the development of a new 'bold' space initiative aimed at taking humanity to a New Earth, with the “dual challenge” of establishing a permanent human presence across our Solar System and beyond, and bringing a host of innovations to ensure the environmental sustainability of our cradle planet Earth. Both challenges seek a unique colossal objective, a “New Earth”, and have similar pathways to achieve it. The pursuit of such a massive space program would not only bring breakthroughs in science and technology, but also a new economy with bountiful jobs and plenty of resources.

Earth is the cradle of Humankind, but one cannot remain in the cradle forever.

PHASE 12020-2030

Human Habitation in Orbit

During the first phase, basic capabilities for in-space habitation will be deployed, such as artificial gravity, hydroponics farming and life support systems, while creating a self-sufficient orbital habitat.

PHASE 22030-2040

Human Living on the Moon

The second phase is focused on advancing the development of closed-loop biosystems and the use of in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) techniques for permanent and self-supporting habitation.

PHASE 32040-2050

Human Settlement on Mars

In the third phase, a permanent settlement on Mars is established to determine which human factors and habitability infrastructure are the most suitable to support long-term space travel.

PHASE 42050-2060

Human Colonization of Space

The final phase involves the development and construction of an interstellar starship capable of reaching nearby star systems that could be hosting a potentially habitable planet.

The Space Economy in 2050
Towards the Development of an Orbital Economy

The Orbital Economy refers to the range of economic activities and industries developed in the Cislunar space —the area around the Earth extending out to just beyond the Moon’s orbit, and including all of the five Lagrangian points. As the technologies for access to space improve and become more cost effective, new space-based industries will sprout to become mainstream, which will surely lead to the emergence of a new industrial revolution. By 2050, the Orbital Economy —composed of businesses involved in carrying passengers into space for tourism, producing microgravity-based products, mining near-earth asteroids, harnessing space solar power and more— will be a multi-trillion dollar market which will transform the way we work and live.

“We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.”
