Whenever I find another person or group who shares my mission to help people succeed with an aerospace career or mission, I love to promote them here. That’s what I’ll do now with the Outbound team.
Here is how the Outbound group describes themselves and their purpose, according to their website:
We are an independent and forward-driven combination of academics, technologists, and businesspeople producing short term and long term solutions for the exploration and development of outer space. Our job is simply to foster the creation of a space-faring race, through the aggressive pursuit of excellence and tireless encouragement of anyone sharing the desire to leave our celestial cradle. Rather than viewing the development of outer space as a niche market or an esoteric academic exercise, we take the contrary view:
The vista for the use of outer space is as broad as space itself, and is to be open to all who wish to learn, or create. To live and work and thrive in space, our goal is to begin our launch from within the landscape of the mind and create the concrete solutions to each challenge before us as a species.
That’s a great vision and mission! Make a trajectory over to the Outbound site and subscribe to their blog for links to other space-faring websites and their blog.
If you want to see humanity become a space-faring species, everyone who joins the discussion and the movement can make a difference! Some more than others…especially if you become one of the engineers, scientists, professionals, or supporters that help us get there!
One simple, easy, and effective step is to start associating with others who have this mission (see Tip #3 in my book, How To Be a Rocket Scientist). Joining a blog–and then engaging on it!–is a real way to do that in our modern age. You never know where those connections and discussions may lead. If you never start and engage, you’re stuck sitting on your launch pad. And that’s no good for you or any of us.
So take a small step now and just say hello with a comment below! You can type one word and hit “enter”, can’t you? Sure you can!
