ISTC: Literal and Figurative Outreach

Recommended Posts


The Trans-Continental Science Initiative/ Initiative Scientifique Trans-Continentale (TCSI/ISTC) was founded on September 10th, 2017. The four founding nations, the Republic of @Fleur de Lys, the Confederation of @Magnaeus, the United States of @Prymont and the Radiant Republic of the Sunset Sea Islands, agreed to pool their scientific knowledge and efforts to reach goals impossible for the individual states to achieve by themselves. Since its inauguration, the ISTC has played a vital and crucial role in many international and global affairs of scientific interest, most notably the establishment of the Antargic research base Simon Station and the ratification of the Antargic Treaty on December 8th, 2017.

Three main goals have been guiding stars for the ISTC: research, as seen in the Simon Station, preservation, as seen in the Antargic Treaty, and exploration. This communique addresses the third point: exploration.

For untold millenia the human race has gazed up to the stars, admiring their beauty and dreaming about worlds far away from home. During the last century, however, humanity managed to achieve its first step on its voyage to the stars: man set his foot onto the Moon. This historical event inspired millions around the globe to study sciences, take interest in the world around them and to resume the age-old dream of flying to the stars. Lately, however, this flame of inspiration, ignited by the Moon landings, has faded away. The ISTC wants to be the institution to reignite the ember lying dormant within our hearts. New wind shall fill the sails of the spirit of exploration. Once more shall humanity look at the universe through the eyes of a child, brimming with curiostiy. Not in the name of a singular nation, but in the name of all of us, the ISTC has made its decision:

we will put men on the Moon again.

However, a task of such colossal dimensions requires more helping hands than the current ISTC member states can offer. Although the ISTC has completed the construction of its first cargo rocket "Ariane" earlier this year, there is still a lot of work to be done. Therefore, the ISTC reaches out to several nations fulfilling the prerequisites of this monumental endeavour.

Hereby, the Initiative Scientifique Trans-Continentale invites

to join its circle.

The ISTC now awaits responses from the invited parties.

Together, we can achieve feats larger than life.
