Since it’s inception in 1988, the Space Frontier Foundation has built a rich history, and has a grand story to tell, including amazing successes and heart-wrenching failure. Below is our attempt to capture that story, so that future generations can understand our humble beginnings, and comparing to the current state of affairs they may be in, believe that change is indeed possible. May they may stand on the foundation we have laid, in order to reach for the stars.

Frontier Files


An essay collection that was written and emailed once per week for a series of 10 weeks, to whoever signed up on the Foundation’s website.
