Send a postcard to space & back - with Blue Origin


Earth is finite. To protect our gem of a planet and enable a future of abundance and growth, Earth needs space. Space gives Earth room to grow, new resources, more frontiers to explore, and a way forward that unites us all. We just need you to help visualise this future.

Why do you think Earth needs space? Write or draw your vision on a postcard. The Club will launch it to space and back on a Blue Origin New Shepard rocket, and mail it to you with a 'Flown to Space' stamp.

SPACE IS A GIFT FOR EARTH: Space resources and energy are abundant. By exploring space we could reduce the use of Earth's resources. The sun offers unlimited energy, and asteroids can provide metals and water. How would you use these materials to help humans living in space or those on Earth?

ROOM FOR HUMANITY TO GROW: The solar system could support a trillion humans. If you lived in space, what would your home look like? How would you travel between neighbourhoods? What businesses would you build? What would cities look like?

THE GIFT OF THE MOON: The Moon has abundant resources. It also has low gravity compared to Earth, making it a great destination to live or a pit stop to other places in the solar system. What would your future Moon colony look like? How would you build an inclusive community? How would you govern and design a new society?

EXPLORATION: Since the beginning of time, humanity has always explored new frontiers. Exploration changes our perspective. With more access to space, there's no limit to where we could go next. Where would you go?
