Gateway Yearly Crew Membership:
For Those Who Want To:
- Work in Space
- Help Design The Gateway
- Invest in The Gateway Foundation IPO
Becoming a Gateway Crew member will give you the opportunity to:
- Contribute to the structural, mechanical, electronic, and other design aspects of The Gateway
- Fabricate the parts and/or tools to build it
- Assemble it in space
- Operate The Gateway upon completion
- Invest in new industries, which will emerge as a response to new demands created by The Gateway, including:
- Space Construction
- Space Tourism
- Space Colonization
Engineers and architects will submit design plans, schematics, and suggestions for The Gateway. Gateway Crewmembers will also be encouraged to examine aspects of the Gateway’s design and offer engineering contributions to improve its operation. Superior design contributions will be rewarded with a cash prize. Every year, the best engineering contribution will win a free trip to the Gateway.
To build in space we must first create its components here: The GSAL, the pods, the heavy-duty suits, the bots. New businesses will form to meet the demand for these machines and equipment.
Work In Space:
The construction of The Gateway will create a huge demand for people who want to work in space. Many positions will need to be filled, including Construction Astronauts, Pod Operators, Station-Arm Operators, Operations positions, and others.
Upon completion of The Hub (the first stage of construction on The Gateway) hundreds of people will be required to perform the extraordinary work that will be necessary to operate and maintain The Gateway. The people chosen for these positions will come from all over the world, but the one thing they will all have in common is that they will all be Gateway Foundation Crewmembers, who believe passionately in the expansion of humankind into space.
Invest In Space:
Investors, Futurists, and Supporters of humankind’s ascent to the stars will invest and fund these emerging industries. Humankind must learn how to build large structures in space. Several profitable businesses will form to rise to this challenge. These companies will be members of the Gateway Industrial Group (GIG). Every Gateway Crewmember working for a GIG company will be eligible for the annual Gateway trip giveaway.
When you become a Gateway Foundation Crewmember, you will be assigned a Seniority Number. Seniority Numbers denote Gateway employment application review ranking. For this reason and others, Seniority Numbers are very important.
Crewmembers with Seniority Numbers will also be allowed to purchase Gateway Foundation stocks before other investors at our IPO. We believe in rewarding vision and early support by privileging Crewmembers over random investors whose vision fails to extend beyond their own bottom line. Annual Crewmember fees are kept low to allow for broad support by everyone who wants to join.
All Annual Gateway Crewmember Numbers are odd numbers.
