At the Institute of Space Commerce, we are committed to the survival with style of the human race. For decades, the power of space exploration has propelled us upwardly, building the hefty foundations of our society and science. As the world faces new alarming challenges, we need the power of youth to take space beyond the imaginable. We need you to change and write the story of space to secure the future of humankind on Earth and beyond.
We strive to make business in space more transparent and understandable for all. We are and will always be a forum for communication, businesses, and education. We welcome enthusiasts, doers and thinkers from all sides of the global economy and political spectrum to take part in our forums and web platforms. As the North American affiliate of the International Space University, our work is based upon its foundational ‘3 Is’ of International, Intercultural, and Interdisciplinary.
The work of the Institute is supported by ManSat and Geeks Without Frontiers. The ISC has moved forward thanks to the contributions in cash and kind also by the Ten To The Ninth Plus Foundation, which we thank wholeheartedly.
