Membership is the Lifeblood of the International Space Elevator Consortium

The lifeblood of any non-profit research organization is its members.  Members are people like you who are going to make the Space Elevator a reality.  If you like the in-depth research, global advocacy, youth education, and all of the other ISEC activities, please help us!  Join or renew your membership today and bring the Space Elevator a little closer to reality.  The most important aspect of your membership is that your contribution allows us to pursue the programs which will hasten the day when a Space Elevator will be built. Please also subscribe to our monthly emails and notifications about the annual Space Elevator Conference and other important announcements. Note: ISEC is a recognized 501c3 Corporation (EIN # 80-0302896).  All of your contributions are fully tax-deductible (in the United States).
