Founded, October 4, 2004. The day SpaceShipOne rocketed into history, becoming the first private manned spacecraft to exceed an altitude of 328,000 feet twice within 14 days
We are a science club doing lunar habitat research, part of this is building one here on earth, this will allow us to also learn what it might be like to live on the moon, mars, Kepler 22b, HD40307g,GI581d, GI183c,GJ667Cc or others. We will later build a demonstrator, prototype then the working model
We are about regular everyday people making,learning and doing many cool projects and being involved in great events join our club, it is an incredible experience and you get me meet incredible members
Join us by registering on the Meetup network and come to some lectures, events or activities.
Make a profile on Meetup then join a meeting. Note that you will not be spamed when providing your email address this is a paid meetup system that we purchased to more easily envite and keep track of our members.
We do not share or sell your email address.
We at CSW are a group of workers with a desire "To Live And Work In Space"
To allow the rapid expansion of human development and the development of infrastructure for space. We will do this by providing a means to train individuals for the future of space colonization. We will make available funds and materials to construct infrastructure for space development
Our club is completely private and is compeletly dependant on donations from people like yourselves.
Even $5.00 will help
Of course we would accept what ever you can afford and know that we appriciate that is donated no matter how small
Video clip two is near the conclusion of our project for the summer of 2012 and is only a sample of what is yet to come
Video clip one is at the beginning of our project in Drumheller and is the start of an incredible experience
We are a science club of builders, hackers and inventors with a mother project to live and work in space. We are workers that want to build things, break things and learn things.
We want to fit our projects into our world of the future, and the future of our world in space.
It is about building what we need to live in space and inventing what we don’t have.
If you can conceive the possibility of making this happen and creating a piece of this puzzle, you are ready to become a Space Worker.
We are not a secret society per say but as a hacker or inventor we are secretive in many ways
Become a Space Worker, contact the Captain or seek nomination by joining us on meetup Calgary before attending meetings. Also, if you have a hobby or project that you want to tell us about, please know that your passion to make things happen is what we are all about.
The members are maintaining the vision of our club. The reason members are involved is to expand on their potential.
All of us have a potential that is above what we do for work in our daily lives. The
Calgary Space Workers offer a chance for people to do something perceived at a glance to be impossible, to move forward with ideas that they can see as reality.
Members are driven by a desire to become involved in a difficult and complex challenge. Inventing, hacking and fitting it into an even bigger puzzle
Part of our research is building a lunar habitat on earth with all the comforts of home.
New members are welcome to come together for the next phase of progress for the analog lunar habitat. We have started this June 2012 We are building and have already started at the Homestead museum in Drumheller Alberta
Join at Meetup Calgary to get times of meetings carpooling and tons more more information
Donate parts and equipment that you would normally leave in your garage for a day that you might use them. Although would not turn down a donation of money we also need parts and materials of all kinds. These are the things that we need to build with.
Copper tube 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch what ever you have
Brass compression fittings
Ball valves (brass)
Black electrical tape
Grey Duct tape
Black Fe pipe and nipples
BX cable for 120 commercial application
Electrical breaker cabinets 200 amp or mayb e more
makeup air unit.
nuts and bolts of every possible size and shape
lumber for base building
Low voltage lighting equipment
conduit and low voltage wire.
There is so many things we need just drop me an email.

There is no looking back as we create the demonstrator, prototype then the working model of our moon habitat and research station.
The demonstrator:Our members will be building a Hard-shell Analog Headquarters, the Hard-shell Manufacturing shop, the Connecting Inflatable or collapsible Corridor, the Inflatable Wetlands Biosphere Module and the Sleeping Quarters Module. Later the members will build their own personal mobile habitats that will accompany the groups project.
Our PrinciplesWe support all space initiatives, but we do not lobby for any one initiative or groupWe support space tourism, but work toward Transmigration and autonomyWe uphold the right to private space faringWe strive to build a more peaceful world in space
Our Goals Ultimately Mars for Colonization inclusive of restoration of its ancient ecologyThe moon is the necessary stepping-stoneWe will in time build a demonstrator, prototype then actual habitat to live and work in space We will in time build and launch our own spaceship
Projects on the go.........
A fully functional analog space/moon habitat and research station project to demonstratate and learn more about building our prototype and working model.

Join us to realize your full potential. This is the potential that exists beyond your daily challenges, of your daily work and of your daily life itself. Become involved with this great project. We know that technology has out-grown the ability live in space. We know that common people not just governments can assemble this puzzle. It is not difficult it is only a matter of time and the desire of the people.
