Last week one of the leaders of NSS explained to me how important it was that the pro-space philosophy be seen as a movement like the Peace Movement or the Environmental Movement. Late Sunday afternoon, I had the idea that a facebook group would be a good way to easily promote the term The Space Movement, since there are dozens of space groups with many of the same members. I also realized that Facebook was having a big push with CNN for the Inauguration and that would be a prime opportunity to get members since more people would be online.

So, I set about doing that. I knew the group should have a logo so I sat down at the computer and designed one. Then I looked at how to set up a group on Facebook, by setting one up. I was going to set up a Retrocausality group, a pet project of my father, but I found they already had one complete with picture of my father, I joined. Then I moved on to try the Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, one of my father’s previous projects, as I was setting it up I noticed it wanted a website.

So, I realize I should also set up The Space Movement Web Site and I might as well set up a The Space Movement Blog. From experience I knew that a Café press store is a great way to get noticed by Google because it is very easy to create a lot of products and each product creates a page and, Cafe Press and Google are working together so Cafe Press is indexed very quickly. So since I already had a logo, I also set up The Space Movement store on Cafe Press.

The Face book Space Movement Group now has  29 members.  If you are on Facebook, I hope you come by and join The Space Movement Group.  I hope that within a week the first ten pages found by a Google search of the term “The Space Movement” will mean the pro-space movement.

I have found that there isn’t much material on The Space Movement, as such, so if any one has good material on the web please send me the link.  Please use the term The Space Movement often.  It is important to make it part of the national jargon in order for space settlement to be taken seriously.
