Who We Are
The Space Frontier Foundation
The Space Frontier Foundation is an organization composed of space activists, scientists and engineers, media and political professionals, entrepreneurs, and citizens from all backgrounds and all nations. We are transforming space from a government-owned bureaucratic program into a dynamic and inclusive frontier open to people. We are determined to convert the image held by many young people that the future will be worse than the present, and we reject the idea that the world's greatest moments are in its past.

Our central goal is the large-scale permanent settlement of space. We believe people have the "right stuff' and that everyone will benefit from opening the space frontier. We believe that free markets and free enterprise will become an unstoppable force in the irreversible settlement of this new frontier, and that our world is on the verge of a truly historic breakthrough – cheap access to space.

We are changing the basic assumptions about space. Foundation speakers present a future that excites and inspires citizens from all nations, and through awards and briefings, our ideas are driving the portrayal of space into new directions. According to Dr. Robert Zubrin, "The Space Frontier Foundation is pound for pound the most effective space group in the world."
Leaders
The Advocates are the heart of the Space Frontier Foundation. Each year, at the Foundation's annual business meeting (held in conjunction with our annual conference), the Advocates elect the Board of Directors for the following year. The newly elected Board then elects officers for the following year, including President, Treasurer, and Secretary. For a list of current board members, officers and other members of the Foundation team, click here.
Our Advisory Board
The Space Frontier Foundation is very proud of its Board of Advisors, comprised of respected members of the space, media, entertainment, business and scientific communities. These people have chosen to make their names and their time available to us to help us achieve our goals. For more info on our advisors, click here.
Annual Awards
The Space Frontier Foundation gives annual awards to space activists who have made, in the Foundation's view, the greatest contributions that year to opening the frontier. Categories include Service to the Frontier, Vision to Reality, Vision of the Future and Best Presentation of Space. A special award, The Founder's Award, is given each year to honor a space activist for overall and long-term achievement. The awards are presented at the Foundation's annual conference each year, during the awards banquet. For more info on our annual awards, click here.
History of the Foundation
The Space Frontier Foundation was created in 1988 by a group of space community leaders who were dedicated to opening the space frontier to human settlement as rapidly as possible. These individuals had worked for years – some professionally and some as volunteers – in space research, policy and public outreach. For more info on the Foundation's History, click here.

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?
