Intergalactic Education August 2016 Newsletter
Letter from the President of Intergalactic Education
Friends, Teachers, and Explorers:
want to take this opportunity to reach out to all of you who share my passion
for humanity’s future in space. I have met many amazing people over the years
through trailblazing organizations such as the International Space University
and the Space Generation Advisory Council. When speaking with many of you in
the past I told you about a book I was writing or computer game I was building.
I have spent the better part of the last fifteen years writing down ideas about
the future and designs for an educational game platform called Space World™.
some of you know, in April of this year I was finally financially in a position
to start a software company. I have since hired four full-time employees and
five contractors to work in a small office suite near the Smithsonian National
Zoo in downtown Washington, DC.
with caution, because we leaped while your eyes were closed. Our small staff is
firing on all cylinders and the prototype is about finished. We have
transitioned from a hodgepodge of graphics and code I wrote over the last five
years into an enthralling story about NASA, the Google Lunar X Prize, and those
who are destined for Mars. Players can now customize their astronaut suits,
procure rockets, and -- after successfully touching down -- hop around on the
Lunar and Martian surfaces. We also have several introductory mathematics
courses built into the rocket launching process and R&D mini-games.
promotional efforts outside of the office are also beginning to bear fruit.
Last month we were finalists at the National Creativity Network’s Creative
Business Cup Competition. This is in addition to being inducted into a southern
Maryland technology incubator program called TechFire.
They have provided us with invaluable advice about growing our value
proposition and about getting us into the school system to build our customer
base. Making an educational platform about the NewSpace movement puts us in
contact with countless great teachers and space leaders alike. Intergalactic
Education is consistently received as a company uniquely positioned to tackle
education, gaming, and aerospace promotion in one product.
recently we had the pleasure of creating several videos to tease Space World’s
content. Check them out on our social media site:

coming months are set to move at an even faster pace as we grow and seek out
additional funding. Keep up with us for regular teasers, development insight,
partnership opportunities, and of course the chance to be a part of our
Kickstarter this fall.
you on the far side of the moon,
