At Explorersweb, people would often ask how to get the money for an expedition. Aha, we told them, that’s half the summit. Some even argue summit is the easier part.
Now we must find sponsors and partners - for the biggest expedition of our lives. So far we’ve bankrolled everything ourselves but time has arrived to invite others.
We need $20k to hot test the engine, and $500k to assemble the Mars lander/ascender plus build a full-scale model of the Spaceship, kicked to life with software and electronics here in High Sierra.
In addition to the usual legwork we’ll have to put in, we’ve also done something fun out of it. Instead of Kickstarter/Fundme/etc, we’ve built a ‘Sponsorgraphic’. You give, you get, you learn. Check it out here.

If you know him or know someone who does, please let him know we ask for 20 minutes. Thank you.
Update: The engine-parts sponsorship opportunity is now closed, thank you for participating. Please continue to enjoy the engine infographics.
