Introduction, further information on the Executive Summary page:
Spacer Guild is a membership website and the first project of the larger plan:
“From the Earth to the Stars; in Six Easy Steps!”
The basic concept of the membership website is to encourage and reward anyone in the world, with even a mild interest in space, to actually do space related things and then report their accomplishments to the website: JoinSpacerGuild.com.
Members can go as far as they want with Spacer Guild, up to and including travel off-world, training themselves and each other for the tasks needed along the way.
As a member of the fully developed site, you can find resources there to get involved with space exploration in many ways and then go and ‘register’ whatever you do.
Let’s say you launched a PongSat. When you get it back from JP Aerospace, you go to JoinSpacerGuild.com and add your picture or video and your ‘report’ of the experience. Rewards include virtual ‘badges’ (which you can also purchase) and points for your accomplishment. If you earn enough points you can win prizes like meeting an astronaut in person or a Zero G flight and other such sponsored or donated activities. Of course, you then report those experiences to the site for more badges and points!
We have games and other experiential ways to learn new skills and you can connect with other members to collaborate on bigger projects.
Think Scouting, “The Last Starfighter” and edutainment blended together to develop the human potential to do everything it takes to travel off world, then out to the stars.
Too many traditional formats for learning cater to too few people or learning styles. Spacer Guild allows individuals to learn what they want, the way they want, when they want and capture past accomplishments to support current endeavors.
