Since prehistoric times, when the first humans gazed at the stars, the dream of the wonders of heaven have been a central ingredient of mankindâ€™s mythology, religion and in the modern age, the driving force to reach beyond the boundaries of human voyage.
Early Argonauts used the stars to navigate the seas and oceans. Explorers used it to plot their course through unknown territory. Ancient civilizations gave name to constellations after their gods and beliefs, laying the ground of todayâ€™s religions.
As our civilization matured with the industrial and scientific revolution, the heavens constantly changed, challenged and shaped the perception of our place in the universe.
It is only merely a few hundred years ago when we thought that our planet was the center of the universe. Modern science proved our sun to be one of trillions among the infinite stars in the universe and with the new discoveries in the field of quantum mechanics and theories of multiverse, giving us a hint that our universe might just as well be just one of many others.
Since the beginning of the space age, which began with Sputnik in 1957, space-science has given us countless new technologies, from the simple Teflon in our frying pans to innumerable scientific discoveries ranging from new drugs for curing deadly diseases to inventions that laid the ground of the information technology, Internet, and global communication and positioning using satellites orbiting the planet, and yet we are still in the beginning of what lays ahead of us.
With this in mind, it is quite obvious that space-science is essential for us as species to evolve further, to invent new technologies and make new discoveries.
There will also be a day when our planet no longer can sustain the need of resources for the growing population and it will be necessary for humans to colonize other celestial bodies and planets. The resources of our planet are shrinking at an increasing speed, and it is needless to say that resources have been one of the two main reasons of countless wars through our history, the other meaningless reason being religion. The day that we have to leave the cradle crawls closer and closer for every minute. It is therefore a necessity of survival of our species to develop space-travel at a large scale available to everyone at any time.
That is where the Bitnation Space Agency comes in play with the SpaceChain space program. The very special essence of this idea is open source and decentralize space-travel; a space agency that is not bound to any nation or state, free for everyone to participate regardless of nationality, geographic habitation or current political situation.
We at Bitnation Space Agency welcome you to a new era of human adventure. To seek and find new ways of making our lives better and to make new discoveries and create new technologies that will ensure the survival of our species.
