We are interested in the establishment of an independent and sovereign nation in the fourth and fifth Lagrange points of the Earth-Sun system based on the principles of liberal secular humanism and civic republicanism.
Unlike many other “space advocacy” groups we do not believe in colonization of the Moon or Mars. Instead we are in favour of the creation of so-called free space habitats, as proposed by people like Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and Gerard O’Neill.
Further we believe that a return of man to the Moon is nothing but a waste of money, actually it is also unnecessary. As you can read here, Near Earth Asteroids are the real treasures of the Inner Solar System.
Another difference with other “space advocacy” groups, is that we reject begging for government funding, instead we prefer crowd funding. One reason for this that we want to create a sovereign space nations, accepting government funds will often imply to support certain goals of existing states. A different reason is that we do not believe in forcing people to pay for something they possibly do not like. We recommend you also to read What we are not.
