This is an exciting and challenging time for the Space Industry. Today, opportunities to create new businesses are more present than ever, and brilliant space projects can be promoted. Outer Space Economy (OSE) supports free access to Space and sustainable Space economy through targeted-information. OSE also supports direct participation of scientists, businesses, students, and civilians. 
A powerful American and worldwide leadership will be created by the new and challenging space development to come.

 
 

What is a Space Civilization? Simply, colonies who live and work in space, which can be an orbital space Station, on a local moon (Mars, Moon, etc.) as well as a remote outposts in the outer parts of the Solar System with a wide trade economy.

The atmosphere of another planet may not be compatible with our basic survival requirements of oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen. In all likelihood, any astronauts stepping foot onto this new world will need some form of space suit to enable them to function. Many of these risks can be mitigated by understanding in advance the many worlds and moons of our own Solar System. Then there is the journey itself to get to this new world. This will involve traveling across vast distances of space, not depending on any rescue parties and avoiding asteroids or dust particles as they approach with large kinetic energies. Even a single particle can present a significant collision risk if the vehicle is traveling at high speed. This is due to the fact that kinetic energy is proportional to the velocity squared, so the faster the ship or particle is going, the higher the collision energy involved. There is also the risk from bombardment of cosmic rays en route, which may cause cancer. If an artificial gravity field is not created then astronauts should expect significant calcium loss and bone decay.
