The International Institute of Astronautical Sciences was established in 2012 and has provided instruction from graduates from 37 different countries, many of whom continue to support citizen-science research through Project PoSSUM and Project OTTER.
Stardom Space invites people of all walks of life to light the world on fire with their passion for space and science. Through a broadening of scientific literacy and space advocacy, Stardom serves to help us become a multi-planetary species and fundamentally change the way humanity looks at the cosmos and ourselves.
PoSSUM, an acronym for Polar Suborbital Science in the Upper Mesosphere, is a 501(c)3 suborbital research and education program that evolved from a NASA-supported flight opportunity, now using citizen-science astronautics to study our global climate through the ongoing observation of its most sensitive environment: the upper-atmosphere.
oSTEM empowers LGBTQ people in STEM to succeed personally, academically, and professionally by cultivating environments and communities that nurture innovation, leadership, and advocacy.
The PoSSUM 13 serves to inspire and enable young women to be involved in science and space. Comprised of 13 members elected each year, the name pays tribute to the Mercury 13.
Pride in STEM is a charitable trust for LGBT+ in Science, Engineering, Tech, and Math
500 Queer Scientists is a visibility campaign for LGBTQ+ people and their allies working in STEM and STEM-supporting jobs — a group that collectively represents a powerful force of scientific progress and discovery. Our goals are: to ensure the next STEM generation has LGBTQ+ role models; help the current generation recognize they’re not alone; create opportunities for community connections and greater visibility within STEM.
