About this project

Our small team provides the most detailed long term view of our future in space available.  It's critical that people and our political leaders understand the future potential of space.  We've never gotten any government funding for this and we've been working hard at it for the last 4 years.  If you care about space we need your support for this effort.

This campaign is to further update and expand the Integrated Space Plan (ISP), and bring the updated ISP to the world through beautiful large color posters and the internet like we did back in 2015.  This time we're also going to create an ISP for kids and we're going to distribute copies of the posters to schools, libraries and leaders in government & industry.  We're also going to make our website much more fun and easier to use.

Due to breakthroughs in reusable rocket technology compliments of Jeff Bezos & Elon Musk, breakthrough legislation by Congress, and visionaries like Al Globus & Charles Miller...the new ISP will show large space settlements far sooner than the previous version.

In the late 1980s, an Integrated Space Plan (ISP) was developed to give a visual representation showing how the major space infrastructure elements fit together (see image below).

 

In 2014 Integrated Space Analytics mounted an effort to update the ISP.  With the help of the space community through Kickstarter we were able to do the research necessary for the update and bring the ISP to the internet for the first time.  Thanks to the support of 212Box of New York we were also able to make the ISP beautiful! 

The current version of the ISP was based on all information available as of late April of 2015.  However, from November of 2015 through September of 2016 we saw an incredible flurry of breakthroughs and announcements from Bigelow Aerospace, Blue Origin, Congress, and SpaceX.  The explosive growth in commercial space involved far more firms than we have room here to list.

The great strides made in 2015 & 2016 mean that the future we've been dreaming of for so long is closer than ever before.  It also means that we need to update the Integrated Space Plan. 

 

Fortunately we've been laying the groundwork for the ISP update by closely following the great strides that have been made over the past two years. For the past few months we've been actively working on the update.  We have that much confidence in the support of the space community! 

ISP Posters & Website ISP Presentation: 

The ISP heritage is a big poster that shows our long term space future in detail.  We'll be creating large (& GIANT) posters once again in full color.  The large posters will measure about 27 by 39 inches and will be printed on wonderful 100 lb. paper.  The GIANT poster will measure about 4 feet by six feet and will be printed on vinyl.  The design for the 2017 poster will be enhanced with new features, and we have a good handle on what we want to add. We're also offering a simplified ISP for kids.  The images below are of the 2015 poster but will give you some sense of the relative sizes.

Backers to the campaign that choose rewards of $40 or more will be recognized as Bronze level donors, backers that choose rewards of $75 or more will be recognized as Silver level donors, and backers that choose rewards of $150 or more will be recognized as Gold level donors.  Gold level donors will also be recognized on printed copies of the ISP itself.  If you'd like to be recognized as a space supporter but the reward you select is for a lower value you can increase your contribution such that you will be recognized.

Website Enhancements:

Our last Kickstarter campaign enabled us to create a website and bring the ISP to the web for the first time.  In addition to adding info and videos to the ISP elements, we also created tons of space web pages about: books, conference calendar, firms, launch vehicles, movies, nonprofits, and spaceports.

In addition to new posters we're going to use the new resources provided by this Kickstarter campaign to enhance our online presence.  While over 25,000 people have already visited our website, there no real end to improving a website and we've identified the next round of enhancements.

 

 

ISP Poster Distribution & Marketing: 

While we didn't have any money set aside in our budget last time for distribution of the ISP beyond our Backers, we still managed to send out copies of the ISP to many space leaders and to media outlets.  This time we're including this in our budget from the start and we plan to mail out hundreds of free copies of the ISP and to have limited funds for promotion of the ISP.

* In the period around 1990 when the Integrated Space Plan was developed and released to the public it was embraced by many of the space community's top leaders.  These are a few of the quotes from the ISP's debut. 

Risks and challenges

Since we were successful in our previous effort to update the Integrated Space Plan we are confident that we are well aware of the risks and challenges involved. Since it is always possible that some issue beyond our control can happen, we reserve the right to issue a refund or provide an alternate reward if necessary.

When we updated the ISP back in 2015 it had been almost 20 years since the last update. Despite the great strides that have been made in space over the past 2 years, this update should be much less complex than the last one.

We intend to use some of the same suppliers that we used for the last campaign and we've already gotten estimates on all the material aspects of this campaign.

If the campaign is funded, the primary risk would seem to be that the update would take longer to accomplish than projected. However, since we've been through the process once before, it's unlikely that the project will take much longer than projected.
