2018 March Storm
NSS, the Alliance for Space Development, and the Space Frontier Foundation are sponsoring March Storm 2018, the premier citizen space related Washington visit event, March 11-15. Participants are asked to commit to a minimum of 2 days of Congressional visits. Training will prepare you to meet with Congresspersons and staffers even if you have no prior experience.
Please sign up at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/march-storm-2018-tickets-41513120862.
March Storm 2018 will be advancing the 2018 Alliance for Space Development objectives:
- Establish an Ultra Low Cost Access to Space (ULCATS) program based on public-private partnership and streamlined governmental policy and regulations (see DRAFT BILL).
- Ensure a gapless transition from ISS to private space stations in LEO, with NASA assisting with development and serving as an early customer (see DRAFT BILL)
- Enable cis-lunar development through a series of programs, such as:
- A public-private partnership to develop and demonstrate a re-usable lander based in cis-lunar space.
- Setting a price that NASA will pay for commodities (water,etc.) at locations in cis-lunar space.
- Purchasing data gathered by private companies on lunar resources (water, etc.).
This year we have decided to request participants pay a $40 registration fee, and we are using Eventbite, a popular and reliable service, to collect the fees. PLEASE NOTE — students are free on display of a student ID card during the training session. Also, if you are unable to pay the $40, scholarships are available. Eventbrite will walk you through the process. Please send any questions to [email protected].
