Calgary Space Workers Society ( CSW ) Operating as a Science Club Since October 4,2004We are the parent club of The Science Clubon the meetup network where our members sign up and become co-ordinated for both fun events and our main project to build our analog habitat (starting with our biosphere on earth)Join for free here:www.meetup.com/the-science-club In partnership, chapter and/or in affiliations with the
Founded, October 4, 2004. The day SpaceShipOne rocketed into history, becoming the first private manned spacecraft to exceed an altitude of 328,000 feet twice within 14 days
It is time to turn to stars and explore, it is time for people like us to discover and be part of an incredible adventure!
Have you ever thought about being one of the lucky people to start a new world on another celestial body
We are a science club of volunteers doing Lunar and other celestial body habitat research. Our first part of this research is building an anolog or demonstrator habitat here on earth. This will allow us to also learn what it might be like to live on the moon, mars, Kepler 22b, HD40307g,GI581d, GI183c,GJ667Cc or the many others recently discovered. Our intent is to later build a prototype then the working model.
We are regular everyday people making,learning and doing incredible things and being involved in making it happen.
Join us by registering on the Meetup network and come to some lectures, events or activities. As we learn from each other and we enjoy the company of friends we slowly build and plan for a future where human kind will live on another world
Join our group on Meetup then come to a meeting. We do not share or sell your email address. We are too busy enjoying life and the people that we have met
We at CSW are a group of workers with a desire "To Live And Work In Space"
To allow the rapid expansion of human development and the development of infrastructure for space. We will do this by providing a means to train individuals for the future of space colonization. We will make available funds and materials to construct infrastructure for space development
Our club is completely funded by donations from people like you.
Mostly, we have recieved donations of used and no longer needed construction materials that we use to build our projects.
We have some excellent HVAC equipment and building supplies but need more.
We pick up by the next day when possible or by request.
We still need money for donnuts, coffee and a few odds and ends that we can't aquire used.
No donation is too small
Donate by sending a cheque in Canadian funds to the
Donate parts and equipment that you would normally leave in your garage for a day that you might use them. Although would not turn down a donation of money we also need parts and materials of all kinds. These are the things that we need to build with.
Copper tube 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch what ever you have
Brass compression fittings
Ball valves (brass)
Black electrical tape
Grey Duct tape
Black Fe pipe and nipples
BX cable for 120 commercial application
Electrical breaker cabinets 200 amp or mayb e more
makeup air unit.
nuts and bolts of every possible size and shape
lumber for base building
Low voltage lighting equipment
conduit and low voltage wire.
There is so many things we need just drop me an email.

There is no looking back as we create the demonstrator, prototype then the working model of our moon habitat and research station.
The demonstrator:Our members will be building a Hard-shell Analog Headquarters, the Hard-shell Manufacturing shop, the Connecting Inflatable or collapsible Corridor, the Inflatable Wetlands Biosphere Module and the Sleeping Quarters Module. Later the members will build their own personal mobile habitats that will accompany the groups project.
Our PrinciplesWe support all space initiatives, but we do not lobby for any one initiative or groupWe support space tourism, but work toward Transmigration and autonomyWe uphold the right to private space faringWe strive to build a more peaceful world in space
Our Goals Ultimately Mars for Colonization inclusive of restoration of its ancient ecologyThe moon is the necessary stepping-stoneWe will in time build a demonstrator, prototype then actual habitat to live and work in space We will in time build and launch our own spaceship
Projects on the go.........
A fully functional analog space/moon habitat and research station project to demonstratate and learn more about building our prototype and working model.

Join us to realize your full potential. This is the potential that exists beyond your daily challenges, of your daily work and of your daily life itself. Become involved with this great project. We know that technology has out-grown the ability live in space. We know that common people not just governments can assemble this puzzle. It is not difficult it is only a matter of time and the desire of the people.
