A solar system-wide economy

Space remains the Final Frontier, with virtually unlimited energy, resources, and potential. Emerging Futures works with government agencies including NASA, nonprofits, and commercial companies to explore promising markets and technologies for space development. Let’s grow a human-centered economy in space without despoiling it for future generations.

"Caelus certe patet, ibimus illi" — Ovid

(Surely the sky lies open, let us go that way!)



Emerging Futures, LLC was founded in 2016 as a research and analysis consultancy and is based on the U.S. West Coast. Its interests currently focus on two broad areas: climate change mitigation, and the commercial expansion of humanity into space. While seemingly unrelated, we view these two topics as intimately linked to each other.
