Thanks for that, every single input I get helps. Is there a good place to go to when one wants to find such surveys or studies? I wouldn't mind looking through them for questions and also just to see how they are done. Also this survey is aimed at a global audience, I am hoping to have it available ...

Not crowdfunding but crowd related

I started working on a survey aimed at people interested in space. The goal is to have the survey up on it's own easily promotable website, people fill it out, then they get the data. Hopefully it will help us learn about ourselves to aid people in their crowd funding campaigns, or other activities ...

Well I have been thinking about this crowdfunding issue. I think we could crowd source the crowd funding and crowd working. :) Well basically if we are talking about running a space program, what we could do is simply break up the project into tiny pieces, then utilise hobby groups, or individual ti...

[quote=""Engineer817""]This community is probably best described as an idea generating factory. Every thing from now methods of transport on the lunar surface to asteroid mining and boot strapping have been discussed here. But, like Rhy has mentioned, a few things are just a little too far into the ...

I have read your replies and have been trying to digest them and incorporate the information and ideas you guys have shared. I have a lot of input to try and fit together into something useful. The essence seems to be: -start small -need perks/products to keep people giving money -utilise other reve...

Wait you are thinking of crowd sourcing the operation of robots to build infrastructure on the moon? That sounds quite good actually. When I was thinking of being involved in the lunar x-prize with freespaceships I was thinking that one of the cool things we could do is teleoperated rovers that are ...

my 2 cents :)

Hi Everyone! I was wondering a lot about crowd funding and why it hasn't happened yet for a global space program. I think there are several limiting factors here are my guesses: -competition for attention: There are a whole heap of websites or projects like PERMANENT out there. They all have differe...

Two months ago I realised that if we had a crowd sourced and crowd funded space program I could get involved in our attempts of getting up there. I couldn't find any during my quick search so I decided to start my own. I have been thinking about a system that could involve millions of people collabo...
