Who We Are

Our Story

Kepler Space Institute is dedicated to the expansion of human civilization from Earth into space. We believe this is necessary, both to acquire resources – based on the Law of Space Abundance to provide the fundamental needs of preserving peace and prosperity for humankind on this planet – and to extend life through our solar system and beyond.

Our name honors Johannes Kepler, whose findings on planetary motion in the early 17th Century formed the basis for the scientific discipline he called “celestial physics.” Our aim is to support research, exploration and development of space resources.

Our Mission

The mission of Kepler Space Institute is to benefit society and advance human knowledge and expertise. The Institute is dedicated to the expansion of human civilization from Earth to Space. KSI is committed to discovery, preservation and dissemination of knowledge, educating the next generation of leaders, and the development of space exploration, commercialization, and settlement.

“The diversity of phenomena of nature is so great, the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.”

Johannes Kepler
