We produce meaningful projects that inspire humans and make a positive impact on our planet. Many of them are space themed but not all. We also bring real astronauts to enhance events, projects and brands. All driven by a passion to promote ways that space makes life better on Earth. We are committed to equality, inclusivity, sustainability and a shared humanity for a better world.
Travel to Antarctica on a once in a life adventure with an Astronaut
On Monday, October 11, we unveiled a giant 6,300 square foot Earthwork portrait of NASA Astronaut Stephanie Wilson created by crop artist Stan Herd. The frame and wording of #AimHigher was made out of 1500 tiles of space art created by kids from 14 Atlanta Schools and 3 children's hospitals.
At the ceremony were Astronauts Nicole Stott, Susan Kilrain and Dr. Sian Proctor who only just returned to Earth from the Inspiration4 Mission where she became the first black woman to pilot a spacecraft. They all spoke about the importance of representation to inspire the next generation to aim higher for their dreams.
Stephanie Wilson was the second Black woman to go into space. She's flown in three missions — her first in 2006 — and she's also one of 18 astronauts on the NASA Artemis team, which is set to go to the moon in 2024.

We featured and honored Suffragist Ida B Wells in Union Station in Washington DC through a giant photo mosaic made up of thousands of photos of the suffrage movement. August of 2020 was the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment which secured women's right to vote nationwide in the USA. More info at ourstory100.com.
Women in STEM are often pioneers in their fields which have been dominated by men. In order to have more women in these fields, we need to show that women and girls are welcome but also that they should invited and included. We need to inspire more women and girls to believe they deserve to be there. Representation matters.
That's why these women have come together to talk about why the 19th Amendment is still so important and about how voting for women opens doors to opportunities, not only for women but for all people.
The Apollo 50th Gala presented by Northrop Grumman on July 16, 2019 at Kennedy Space Center Florida was the premiere event of all the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the first moon landing on Apollo 11. We were proud to work with Cisco Webex to unite the teams who made the "impossible" dream of reaching the moon possible.
The People's Moon is a global legacy project to unite the world in celebration of achieving the impossible dream of landing on the Moon. In July 2019 we celebrated the first time humans walked on another celestial body.
