DARPA 100 Year StarshipTM (100YSS)

With100YSS, the stated vision is much larger than technology development or national security. DARPA has expressed a desire to create a renewed enthusiasm and “wonder” across a broad range of research and development, including science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) but also in humanities, arts, management, financing and other related areas for the success of long distance long duration spaceflight. Benefits are not only expected to extend into private and commercial sectors, but to be led by them.

In 2011, the FED led an expert team to help answer the question about the ownership and governance, organizational design, and investment vehicles for the sustainability of the 100YSS. The FED team was selected to present at the NASA 100YSS symposium organized by DARPA and NASA’s Ames Research Centre in Orlando, Florida between 9/30/12 to 10/2/12.
