Shoulders of Giants

Just over a hundred years ago, in 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright, two bicycle crafters from Dayton Ohio, stood on a small beach in North Carolina and watched their dreams come alive as the first airplane in human history took flight. For the first time in the short history of humanity, man had left the surface of the Earth driven by his Ingenuity and Creativity. Powered flight was no longer beyond our grasp. 
Sixty-six short years later, in 1969, four brave men sat in a rocket on a launch platform. Ready to again expand the once impossible horizon and set out for the Moon. Four days later, the first man in human history set foot on the Moon.

Human history is full of firsts. Acts of Bravery and Courage once thought to be impossible. We live in unprecedented times. Men and women across the globe attempt the impossible and achieve it time and time again. What once took generations, can now be done in years. The future is no longer beyond us, we've discovered that together nothing is impossible and everything is possible.

The future is determined by the character of those who make it. We must build the future we want to live in. This future is full of potential, and unlimited possibilities. It is a spectacular place. It is a place where space flights into orbit are as everyday and common as plane flight. A place where a voyages to Mars and beyond are as commonplace as a cruise to the Caribbean.

A whole universe is open to humanity and like the explorers and innovators of the past, we must stand on what our forefathers have done and reach beyond. Explorers like Columbus, the Wright Brothers, and Neil Armstrong still inspire us today because they dared to push the envelope...to attempt the "impossible".

This organization, Astral Exploration and Manufacturing (AEXM) has been established to organize the world's science, develop technologies, and promote interest in science and engineering, with the intent of constructing and maintaining the first large-scale interplanetary space ship. 

This project, and everything it embodies and entails, will require persistence and commitment most of all, and we have great optimism that hope, inspiration, and the wonder within the human spirit will prevail to create a better future than we could possibly imagine.
