> Hello!
> A few months ago we (a few hackerspaces) submitted a reply to a DARPA
> Request For Information.  DARPA is interested as to the type of organization
> that would be well suited to turn an initial investment into a long-term
> self-sustainable decades long space program to achieve the ambitious goal of
> inter-stellar space travel.
> Our short document
> (http://xinchejian.com/2011/06/04/xinchejian-and-the-100-year-starship-study/)
> was well-received and we've since been invited to both an Asian
> manufacturing roundtable in Singapore (next week) and to the 100 Years
> Starship Symposium in Orlando (http://www.100yss.org) at the end of
> September.
> In the meantime, existing efforts continues in various Hackerspaces,  such
> as the Lunar Numbat space program (http://www.lunarnumbat.org) and the Space
> Program track at Chaos Communication Camp
> (http://events.ccc.de/camp/2011/wiki/Space_program_of_the_Hacker_Scene:_For_our_future)
> To get the efforts further organized, it seemed eminently reasonable to
> establish both a wiki page and a mailing list on hackerspaces.org:
> http://lists.hackerspaces.org/mailman/listinfo/spaceprogram
> http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Hackerspaces_Global_Space_Program
> Although right now focused on the 100YSS discussion, I think we can use both
> resources as a focus for any space-related efforts in our respective
> hackerspaces - if only to catalog and showcase the efforts so far.
> If you have an interest, I invite you (space geek!) to join the new mailing
> list and start the discussion.
> Thank you!
