Administration: continual administrative development of the organizational structure of Stellar Genesis to maximize efficiency, transparency, collaboration, and forward momentum
Blue2Orange: development of supportive technologies for Mars colonization
CleanUpSpace: sister-site initiative to provide information about the dangers of space debris and to seek sustainable solutions for cleaning it up
DataFromDust: development of a small scientific instrument payload to be sent to the lunar surface along with NASA’s lunar lander
EasySat: development of cube satellites which will hitch free rides into space to conduct informative experiments
Funding: a discussion forum for Stellar Genesis funding sources including grants, partnerships, donations, crowd-funding, and other means
ISSave: research into potential methods for affordably saving or salvaging the International Space Station, which is scheduled to be decommissioned in 2025
LifeSystems: a bioastronautical re-engineering of existing life support systems and space habitats to provide a greater level of safety and sustainability
MoonTaxi: development of a reusable crew and cargo transport system between the lunar surface and Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway (LOP-G)
NanoFiber: an initiative to research the various benefits of nanofiber structures in astronautics materials and in tissue engineering applications
Orange2Blue: advancing technologies for terraforming Mars (e.g., a satellite capable of producing an artificial magnetosphere)
ResearchDataCentral: an initiative to create an online collaborative environment where researchers can share data and software tools relevant to their field
SGeN: the Space Generation Network, a dedicated app and website platform through which individuals can directly collaborate with each other on space technology development projects
UniResource: an effort to consolidate University resources into an easily navigable and straightforward platform so that students and professors are aware of the full range of technologies, work spaces, and programs at their disposal
MoonTaxi: Space Systems Design proposal is due to A.I.A.A May 10, 2019 NanoFiber: NASA’s Vascular Tissue Challenge is due September 30, 2019
DataFromDust initial proposal must be sent to NASA by November 2019.
SpaceX has a tentative schedule of launching a supply mission to Mars in 2022. Any Blue2Orange technologies seeking to be on it will likely need to be completed by 2021.
ISSave: The ISS is scheduled to be decommissioned in 2025.
