AIN Space Agency Proposal

AIN Space Agency Proposal

The final proposal

What will it be called
The name of the organization will be the Alliance Space Agency (ASA).

The main launch complex will be either:
The Belkhart Cosmodrome Complex (Galbadia) or the White Falls Space Center (Illium)

(to be decided by vote)

Control centers
These will be allotted to any AIN member upon request. So far we have one at the DAS Command Center (Teiko) Note: Work in progress.

Structure
National agencies can become part of the ASA, however they are not required to give up their autonomy. This will separate national interest missions from missions of alliance/global interest.

Priorities
Missions will be decided by popular vote, but can be proposed by anyone. Visual simulation of the launches will need to be carried out by the host nation (with the main launch complex).

Sounds very interesting, New Duveland will certainly be up for it.

ND can finally into space

Certainly interested. If I can get a launch facility built in game I'll likely be up for it.

Looks like ND is out, our space agency is limited to radio telescope complexes deep in the mountains, although we'd be committed to building a new launch facility somewhere in northern Lapérouse, though we're not anywhere near the Equator.

Looks like it's up to the Atlantic Federation, Ascadylea or Nyanga, for countries close to the Equator anyway, not many other AIN nations are close to the Equator.

How's this for an application?

1) An in-game version of your launch facility: See images below.
2) An ideal location for the facility that is on, or near, the equator: The White Falls Space Center is at the northernmost point in Illium, only about 1000km from the equator. The only AIN countries as close are the southern tip of the Atlantic Federation and Ascadylia. It is still half as close to the equator as NASA's launch site in Florida, so we are a more than viable option.
3) A few paragraphs explaining the benefits your nation would offer to the project: The Kingdom of Illium has one of the most advanced and well funded space agencies of the modern world: The Illium National Space Contingency (INSC). The INSC has already put a man on the moon, as well as well into steps to take a manned mission to Mars (UNSC launch #117 has sent a manned survey mission on a 13 month mission to Mars, but they will not be landing on the surface**). Thanks to a strong, steady economy and monster support from the private sector, the INSC is truly a leader in space exploration. The INSC also has the full backing and support of Greystone Industries, the largest mega-corporation in the Kingdom, and one of the largest in the world.
Although initially outpaced by NASA and the Russian Space Program, at the turn of the millennium the INSC took the forefront of Space Exploration after both the Russian and US economies began to stagger and the countries' focuses were elsewhere. After the US Space Shuttle was retired, the INSC's Intrepid class shuttle became the standard for manned launches. In the past, the INSC has worked closely with both the ESA and NASA, and most recently, JAXA, and has proven to be both a strong and independent entity, yet still able to work very well with other space agencies.
The INSC and the Kingdom of Illium as a whole is very committed to the furthering of the human race, which includes exploring outside the bonds of our planet. The Illium National Space Contingency and the Kingdom of Illium would be more than honored to host to the Alliance International Space Contingency (name is temporary until a formal name is given and I'll create a logo), and of course would be more than willing to support and cooperate with other Alliance Nations in the endeavor to explore beyond the planet Earth.

**while a Mars survey mission may not seem totally realistic, keep this in mind: The technology exists today, and the only reason NASA or the ESA hasn't done it yet is the lack of funding and public support/private backing... all of which the INSC has in the Kingdom.

Kingston and Boyce would like to be host to the Control center. We do not have a sufficient launch site or anything of that matter, however a launch control center could very well be located in K&B.

Good to see Illium step up so quickly, I figured it would given it's long obsession with space. :lol: I might actually propose the Spira Islands as a launch site too, since they are coincidentally at the same latitude. :P

I suppose it is possible to have the control center elsewhere, as per NASA's Huston center or the ESA's Darmstadt center. I was originally hoping to have it all in one nation, however it may be fairer to spread the agency out a bit more.

I'll update the proposal to include the mission control facility, which can be located anywhere.

control centers can be in more than one country, for example the ISS has several mission control centers spread across various countries involved in the project.

Image

I think that can be used more than one launch center, again repeating the example of the ISS, the entries are made in the Baikonur Cosmodrome in kazakhstan operated by Russian Roscosmos, as the Kennedy Space Center in US, and ESA's launch center in French Guyana.

I would like to participate in the project, soon post my application, represented by Galbadia Aerospace Exploration Agency, as can be seen here: http://www.aoin.eu/forums/viewtopic.php ... =15#p43842 and in my articles in the wiki, we already have some experience with space missions, and in real life I have a modest knowledge in the field, because besides to be one of my hobbies study astronomy and propulsion systems, I have two uncles who work in the Brazilian Space "Agency", I can contribute as "technical supervisor" 8).
I'll post my application soon.

I was only referring to the mission control center itself, whilst there are other centers involved with these organizations most of them are support facilities that have little to do with actually launching rockets. They are mostly for scientific, pre-mission planning and development. We could add some of these later, but for now I'd just like to get the launching facility and MCC sorted.

Galbadia Aerospace Exploration Agency

The Galbadian Government through the GAEA (Galbadia Aerospace Exploration Agency) offers the use of Belkhart Cosmodrome Complex, and the Noronha Launch Center, which are 2200km and 1450km of the equator respectively, as well as our two main rockets families , the VLS (Veiculo Lançador de Satellites - Satellites Launcher Vehicle) used to launch small and large satellites, and VLP (Veiculo Lançador Pesado - Heavy Launcher Vehicle), used to launch manned capsules, cargo capsules, space station components and lunar missions, the use of the recent Crew Transfer Vehicle Icarus, training operations in zero gravity on the SPACELAB, and support in the construction of a future Union Space Station, We of GAEA are among the most advanced space exploration agencies in the world, we have a modern and extensive family of rockets for all purposes, all developed nationally, we are one of the few agencies to keep a space station for zero gravity research, the SPACELAB, we developed one of the most advanced manned orbital crew transport capsule, the CTV Icarus, and recently successfully landed a rover on the moon, we are one of the few agencies that has experience in construction and assembly of space stations, so we will be of great help in this endeavor, because we are together creating a future, not for a single country, but for all humanity.

Wow that's a really nice space center Leandro, and very realistic looking, good work. :) Going to be a close competition between Galbadia and Illium by the looks of things.

If you want Nyanga can be used for mission bases, telescopes and the like as it's pretty close to the equator.
