Anyone who posts to our blog gets a chance to win a signed copy of
Edge of Dark.
What if a society banished its worst nightmare to the far edge of the solar system, destined to sip only dregs of light and struggle for the barest living. And yet, that life thrived? It grew and learned and became far more than you ever expected, and it wanted to return to the sun. What if it didn’t share your moral compass in any way?

The Lifeboat Foundation and ten other organizations, including the
National Space Society and the Space Frontier Foundation, have launched
a new strategic alliance for space development and
commerce named the
Alliance for Space Development (ASD).
Perhaps the most ambitious part of the ASD agenda is a proposed “Cheap Access to Space Act” that would offer $3.5 billion in government prizes for the development of reusable launch vehicles. Those prizes include, in a draft version of the bill provided by ASD, $1 billion to the first fully reusable vehicle that can place at least one metric ton into orbit and fly again a week later.
The Lifeboat Foundation and ten other organizations including the
National Space Society and the Space Frontier Foundation are joining
together to create a new strategic alliance for space development and
commerce. We will be unveiling the details on this new alliance, as well
as the details on our joint national legislative campaign to advance
space policy in 2015.
Please join us at the 2325 Rayburn House Office Building, Independence Avenue SW and South Capitol Street SE, Washington D.C. 20003, USA on Feb. 25th at 10 am for the press conference announcing the formation of this exciting new partnership.
