The greatest marketing story: Space Island

Space tourism industry, Agenda21 and the Clinton Global Initiative.

Several organizations have been formed to promote the space tourism industry, including the Space Tourism Society, Space Future, and HobbySpace. UniGalactic Space Travel Magazine is a bi-monthly educational publication covering space tourism and space exploration developments in companies like SpaceX, Orbital Sciences, Virgin Galactic and NASA.

Classes in space tourism taught at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, and Keio University in Japan.

The Space Island Group

The plan of the Space Island Group: “By 2020 more than 20,000 men and women will be working aboard these orbiting Islands, and 10 million more high-paid specialists will be supporting them on Earth. That 20,000 number will double each following decade.”

The Space Island Group’s Mission

The Space Island Group mission is to develop a commercial space infrastructure using existing technologies, vehicles and procedures developed by NASA, Russia and other commercial aerospace companies over the last (25) years and create safe and economical space transportation and orbiting space stations for commercial companies, schools and industries.

“The shuffle itself will not be used at this time.”

Message from Arthur C. Clarke “In “2001: A Space Odyssey”, Stanley Kubrick and I depicted a commercial spaceplane delivering passengers to a huge, wheel-shaped space station. Commercially operated hotels, restaurants and videophone booths were plentiful onboard. Stanley and I firmly believed that commercial stations would offer the citizens of Earth far greater access to space than government-run programs.

I still believe that today, which is why I’m supporting the Space Island Group (SIG), based in southern California. They have a detailed plan to privately finance the construction of wheel-shaped space resorts and commercial spaceplanes closely resembling what Stanley and I envisioned decades ago.”

Corporate Officer Debra Deanne Olson Director Global Strategies

Debra Olson has been a connector of both concepts and people, she has been instrumental in advancing partnerships and movements.
She currently (btw looks like that site was updated in 2012) serves on the Board of Directors of The Youth Employment Fund, in Cambridge Mass. and is a Trustee of The New Visions Foundation in Santa Monica…..
Debra is a member of The Clinton Global Initiative in NYC and is on the Advisory Board of The Art Center of Design….

As President of The Global Green Company, Ms. Olson saw the synergy of joining forces with The Space Island Group to make Sun Power and all its glory a reality in our lifetime. TGGC’s main focus has been on bringing the best of merging green technologies to the marketplace, energizing the green economic sector by creating jobs and organizing teams to build sustainable communities and new cities worldwide.

With strong relations and access in the political and financial sectors worldwide, Ms. Olson will use her abilities to connect the Executive Staff of Space Island with world innovators, corporations and financial institutions to facilitate partnerships that will bring this dream to reality as quickly as possible. She will also invite key scientists, wisdom keepers and leaders to join our Executive Committee once the offices are opened and operational this Spring 2007 to co-create a world and society we can only imagine.

Sen. John McCain’s vision of the future for the United States is a vacation resort in space.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) Spoke to 100 Londenderry High School Students about their project, Space Island.

McCain began saying the project is “worthy of serious consideration and support,” and he did not think the goal of 20 million signatures the students are trying to collect in support the project was an impossible goal..

He said there was government interest in a project like Space Island 20 years ago. Space Island will be constructed from 20 large external liquid fuel tanks for space shuttles. The Tanks would be strung together to form a ring; tow tanks would also form a zero gravity core. Space Island would house a five star resort with a staff of 100 and accommodations for 300 guests, Preproduction space research facility, that would work with labs on NASA’s International Space Station, and a manufacturing facility.

Carl Harmon, Young and Rubican’s chief of staff in New York, told us that he believes “this will be the greatest marketing story of the decade”.

There were 20 – 23 people logged into the webcast. I logged in as guest. My computer kept getting booted out of the webcast session and I had to restart 5 times. I therefore filmed a short clip off the screen.
