The days of this society are numbered. Its reasons and its merits have been weighed in the balance and found wanting; its inhabitants are divided into two parties, one of which wants to build their own spaceships and leave this society behind.

The Association of Autonomous Astronauts (AAA) was launched on April 23rd 1995 as the world's first independent and community-based space programme. A Five Year Plan was also established for creating, by the year 2000, a world-wide network of local, community-based AAA groups dedicated to building their own spaceships. Anyone can become an Autonomous Astronaut by joining a local group, or if there isn't one, starting their own.

The AAA is the most exciting space exploration program active in the world today. The AAA's space travel has included: raves in space, amazing space suit designs, sex in zero gravitity, sharp critiques of government-funded space agencies, games of three-sided football and Intergalactic Conferences in Vienna and Bologna. In June 1999 the AAA are organising 'Space1999', a ten day festival of independent and community-based space exploration in London, as part of the final phase of their Five Year Plan.

See You In Space!
