Ad Astra Initiative is more than startup, more than company. It is an idea. Ad Astra (to the stars in Latin) aims to create new, modern settlements on Earth in places never settled before. This new settlements will allow to test and prepare technology to create first extraterrestrial colonies.
AAI aims to create clean, self sufficient, safe, and eco-friendly places to live, grow and advance technologies to the maximum. We strongly believe that all this new technologies, when used outside, would have influence to make our planet better place.
Our idea is to make it in four phases:
Phase 0 - is to create small town from scratch, as testing ground for needed technologies. Cleaning air, agrarian needs, water recycling, waste management, energy needs etc.I is also place where we gather founds and suppliers for our first "colony" here on Earth.
Phase I -We start to build first cities in places, that were never tried before - underwater, in deserts, in high mountains, in cold ices of polar regions. These towns, and future cities would help to handle problems that our future colonies can meet on other planets and moons.
Phase II -We create colony on Earth just in same manner as we would on Luna or Mars. With rockets delivering materials, using robots to construct first buildings and preparing infrastructure for humans to arrive.
Phase III - We can start to build first city in stars, on Luna or Mars. Maybe even cloud city in Venus atmosphere? Stars are waiting to take and claim.
For now we want to start raising founds for phase 0, so no houses or apartments for sale for now. But they will be in (hope not so distant) future!
