The Space Decentral Network

342 Created with Sketch. 7

With an integrated set of collaborative tools, we want to make planning and executing a space mission a simple and sleek process.

Summary

Right now you are using the The Space Decentral Network! It has various features such as social networking profiles, programs, projects, and forums. But there are quite a few more features needed for us to ultimately accomplish planet-scale collaboration. The purpose of this project is to facilitate the design and development of the tools necessary so we can more efficiently accomplish our shared visions for the future.

Discussion

Since Derek started posting some ideas about space education fundamentals, I am posting some curricula for space education and placing the documents in the "Files" box at the bottom of this page. Starting with: Duerk, Donna P. (2004 September). A Curriculum for Aerospace Architecture (AIAA 2004-5925). AIAA Space 2004 Conference & Exposition, San Diego, California, USA, 28-30 September 2004. Reston, Virginia, USA: American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/18gQ7OGbdypy4txVk_nN7AwwTXunW93qR or http://spacearchitect.org/pubs/NASA-CR-2004-212820.pdf
One of the reasons I like the project is the caliber of the founding team. They are driven, well-credentialed, and bring accomplished domain experience. The project aims to be open to anybody, so I thought a good idea would be for those of us lacking domain experience to get up to speed on the fundamentals and the language. Here are some free courses from some very well respected Universities all over the world. These courses are all 100% free, online, and time efficient, with many lectures broken down into 15-25 minute increments that can be squeezed into spare time. I'm halfway through the Princeton Bitcoin classes and highly enjoying it, and alot of technical lightbulbs are clicking. Add any class links you might find helpful.
