To coincide with the first AAA convention in Vienna volunteer astronauts will launched at various stars, galaxies and systems. Each volunteer will be matched to a destination. From midnight all volunteers will be luanched in sequential order. Each astronaut will be accompanied by a 100 pixel square GIF file of their own construction (or image) and the message "WE'RE COMING". Their mission is to simply have a good time and report back (photo's would be nice). The launch will take place from a secret location in south london however astronauts need only supply their 100 pixel squares 'tiles' for them to take part in the exploration.

Stage 2 : 1/1/97 : 'We're all coming at the same time !'

Once all reports have been filed a list of the most suitable destinations will be drawn up. Each destination will explored simultanesously by the travellers. These destination will be programmed into a new device constructed by OAAA that can simultanasouley transport an unlimited number of people to a chosen destination. However each astronaut MUST be at a specified location at the appointed time or risk mising their flight. Suitable locations in cities around the world will be 'acquired' at the appointed moment for use as a space port ( a large monument or public space would be sutiable ). All space port locations and the names of their crews will entered into the launch engine. These will be mapped onto a web site so that the launch can be observed by interested parties. Their mission will to have a good time and hopefully meet some new species and invite them home...
