Space may be the final frontier, but that isn't stopping Stott Space Inc. from making it a frontier accessible to the masses. With the launch of their Indiegogo campaign, Stott Space hopes to find the resources necessary to begin large scale asteroid mining within the decade.
"This is not your typical space travel dream," says Isaac Stott, CEO of Stott Space Inc. "Current goals by existing asteroid mining companies are too small, and we know we can do better. By focusing our efforts on affordable and realistic technology, and allowing for our fellow humans to contribute to the development of this technology, we hope to make space the next destination for mankind."
Stott Space's goal is to execute a number of steps that will take the common man not only into space, but allow him to settle it. Highlighted on their Indiegogo project page, http://igg.me/at/spacemovement, these steps will drive the human race into space:
Step 1: The Space Movement!
Step 2: Asteroid Mining!
With asteroid mining a reality, this should serve as a catalyst to propel a self sustaining space economy.
Step 3: Facilitate Space!
"What makes this all so special is that what we're doing has not only never been tried on this scale before, but that we're doing it through the investment of our fellow man," says Chad Stott, President of Stott Space Inc. "Tackling space exploration and asteroid mining is no easy feat, which is why it will take the concerted efforts of this whole world to push us into the largest frontier known to man."
Stott Space is currently working on plans to develop and build a mining module complete with all the necessary redundancies necessary to successfully perform asteroid mining operations and transport material back to earth.
"Instead of doing this for our own glory, like other asteroid mining companies are prone to do, we are launching this project for the common man. This is the common man's company - we simply want to be a part of it," says Isaac.
