Astrilis Working Group is working to develop our solar system for the equitable benefit of all humanity, and to sustain our healthy growth as we exceed Earth’s ability to support us. We need your help to:
Astrilis defines our solar system as the Common Property of All Humanity, and distributes the value of it equitably.
Astrilis harnesses immediately implementable, well understood technologies to accomplish it's goals.
Astrilis utilizes treaty compliant systems that cannot be repurposed as Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Astrilis integrates every mission component needed to safely accelerate the development of our solar system
Astrilis returns the ever increasing amount of resources, humanity will need to sustain healthy growth.
Astrilis outsources dirty production processes to space and enables us to control our terrestrial environment.
AWG's primary mission is to support the expansion of our reach, further into our solar system, and enable us to obtain the constantly increasing supply of new resources and energy that the human race will need to sustain it's continued growth and development. The AWG is primarily focused on advancing two areas, legislative and technological, which are the only obstacles that remain between us and the resources we’ll need in the future.
Our Solar System contains everything we need to continue to survive and grow for thousands of years to come, yet it’s going to take some courage and determination to obtain these resources. That’s because these resources are a great distance away, through what we currently perceive as a very hostile environment. Yet there are simple ways of dealing with the distances involved, and the resources, from Titan’s oceans of oil, to Saturn’s rings of water ice, are just waiting for us to come and get them.
AWG is advocating the immediate application of old, well known and thoroughly understood, technologies rather than waiting upon the development of hypothetical new technologies. Simply put, it’s always going to be cheaper and easier to focus the radiant energy of the sun with mirrors, than to construct elaborate motors and fuel them. It’s always going to be cheaper to use materials that are available in space, than to lift the same amount of mass from Earth.
One of the primary obstacles to our development of Outer Space, comes in the form of extent treaties and other legislation that, although soundly constructed at the time, now serves to impede our progress. The issues of national liability for that which is launched into space, mitigation of the danger from all the junk we’ve launched into earth orbit, and general agreement as to the ownership of our solar system’s components, are but three of the matters for which AWG is proposing equitable solutions.
AWG is proposing an internationally supported Bootstrap Mission to obtain a large asteroid and return it to geosynchronous orbit above the earth, where it can both, serve as a solid platform for continued development of the technologies we’ll need in outer space, and provide the materials for construction of essential components that would otherwise be far too heavy, and expensive, to lift.
A primary consideration of the AWG, is the long term safety and protection of those who venture beyond our terrestrial confines into outer space. Radiation, high velocity impacts and environmental support remain the most difficult problems for which the AWG is now proposing simple, inexpensive, solution in the form of Amorphous Iron-Silicate Bubbles that safely enclose and protect those who travel beyond Earth's magnetic field.
Assuring the safety of passengers, while reducing the cost, of lifting cargo into space, are primary goals of Astrilis, and it achieves this by fabricating Carbon Fiber ribbons that enable the construction of Space Elevators that can support the weight of both themselves, and the Tractors that will climb them into space. The billions of tons of anchoring mass in GSO, and the enormous amounts of carbon required, are both obtained from the Asteroid that's acquired and positioned in GSO.
The exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries, irrespective of their degree of economic or scientific development, and shall be the province of all mankind.Outer Space Treaty
We resolve, between now and 2030, to end poverty and hunger everywhere; to combat inequalities within and among countries; to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies; to protect human rights and promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls; and to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources. We resolve also to create conditions for sustainable, inclusive and sustained economic growth, shared prosperity and decent work for all, taking into account different levels of national development and capacities.UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means.Outer Space Treaty
The establishment of military bases, installations and fortifications, the testing of any type of weapons and the conduct of military manoeuvres on celestial bodies shall be forbidden.Outer Space Treaty
