Simply put, Star Letters was born out of a basic human need: the thirst for knowledge and the desire to share that knowledge with the world.
Everyday, humanity wakes up asking itself the same questions. Who are we? Where are we going? Where are we from?
While we don’t have definitive answers yet, according to the world’s top minds both past and present, the stage for humanity’s future will almost certainly be set in space.
But what does that mean? What does it mean for a human to be an interplanetary being?
It’s time we begin exploring this idea and shifting our mindset to that of a space-faring civilization because in a decade, humans will have Mars in focus and soon after, we’ll be landing our first crewed spacecraft there.
But before we can even get there, those who live on this world must be convinced that such a feat is possible and that is no easy task. In order to reach everyday people we must search out and highlight the human stories woven through the fabric of this new frontier.
So let’s join in on this journey shall we? Star Letters will work hard to bring you the stories of those braving the new space frontier and those putting hammer to nail to make that happen.
Also, as important, Star Letters will highlight and collaborate with storytellers around the world who work tirelessly to spread the wonder and awe of space exploration in their communities.
Star Letters is more than happy to give a signal boost and we want to collaborate with anyone who shares the same mission. Feel free to reach out!
Let’s find a way to work together and build a global community of individuals who believe in the promise of the future and want to inspire others with that promise.
