Why SPACE 3.0 Matters

Where do people, non-profits, and companies go when they have a brilliant idea but need funding or support?

Imagine if an endowment was set up when John Glenn first flew into space or Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the Moon. Just $20 Million raised back then could have grown to more than $1 Billion today and provided a source of funds that could make a profound difference.

SPACE 3.0 aims to fill this gap.
Our mission is to help preserve the history of spaceflight, empower entrepreneurs and visionaries, promote STEM initiatives,
and increase awareness of space and its benefits.

SPACE 3.0 Launches "One Small Step" Grants

Seeking funding for a space history related activity?  SPACE 3.0’s “One Small Step” grant is open throughout the year to individuals and organizations, whenever the need presents.  We seek proposals where $250-$1,000 could make a real difference–ideas such as digitizing historical documents, collecting an oral history, creating podcasts, or filling gaps at the Space Business & Commerce Archives.
