Nyack, NY, March 5, 2008 – The Space Frontier Foundation announces a new project, "The Cosmos Review," an online literary magazine dedicated to space poetry. The magazine features classic poems from ancient Greece to contemporary voices of poetry, all related in some way to the cosmos. A children's category will feature poems from tomorrow's leaders, providing classroom project suggestions for teachers to lead poetry and cosmos appreciation.

The space poetry project is headed by prize-winning novelist and poet, Vanna Bonta, who graciously accepted an invitation from the Foundation. Herself a Foundation Advocate, Bonta contributes a lifelong dedication to poetry and passion for the cosmos to creation of the project. Bonta is noted for creating the genre of quantum fiction with her novel, Flight. The Florentine Camerata, a committee founded in the 1500s by a group of humanists, poets and musicians that included Galileo's father, Vincenzio Galilei, awarded Bonta's poetry silver and gold medals. As Editor-in-Chief, Bonta will see to it that all works submitted are worthy of inclusion into such a unique online collection.

The New York-based Space Frontier Foundation is a space advocacy organization. Its membership of scientists, engineers, media, political professionals, entrepreneurs and citizens are from all backgrounds and nations. Founded in 1988 by a group of space community leaders dedicated to rapidly opening the space frontier to human settlement, the organization has been a leader in developing the private sector of space opportunities, inspiring the previously government-owned bureaucratic program into a dynamic and inclusive frontier open to humanity.

"There are fantastic opportunities awaiting us in the boundless space frontier," said Foundation co-founder and Chairman of the Board, Bob Werb. "Poetry has always been at the forefront of society's vision and inspiration, and the Foundation is proud to announce this new project."

The Cosmos Review website has features such as interactive space and poetry quotes equipped with "send-to-a-friend" and "add the quotes" options to websites or MySpace. A beautiful animated banner and sweeping page transitions complete the state-of-the art web design aesthetics. The magazine's theme parallels engineering and poetry in both visual design and content, a precedent conceptualized by Bonta who writes, "The cosmos is a poem."

Now accepting poetry submissions and editorials about language and poetry, The Cosmos Review hopes next issue's collected works will span all ages and countries across planet Earth. Visit the website to learn more, and to submit your own poem in praise to the cosmos, at http://www.thecosmosreview.com. Contest details and multimedia publishing will soon be announced.

The Space Frontier Foundation is an organization of people dedicated to opening the Space Frontier to human settlement as rapidly as possible. Our goals include protecting the Earth's fragile biosphere and creating a freer and more prosperous life for each generation by using the unlimited energy and material resources of space. Our purpose is to unleash the power of free enterprise and lead a united humanity permanently into the Solar System.

The Frontier Enabling Test
Our definition of a "frontier enabling" technology or policy is one which has as its effect the acceleration of the creation of low cost access to the space frontier for private citizens and companies, enables or accelerates our use of space resources, and/or accelerates the rate at which wealth can be generated in space. In other words, is the project or policy going to provide a return on the national investment, if we define "return" to be the economically sustainable human habitation of space?
