Who Are We?

We are OASIS, the Organization for the Advancement of Space Industrialization and Settlement, the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the National Space Society. We are one of the oldest and largest chapters of the NSS.

What is our Mission?

Creating a spacefaring civilization with communities beyond Earth through education, political action, and chapter projects.

What Does OASIS Do?

Through its many activities, OASIS gives members and friends ways to work towards building humanity's future in space. Some of our members' projects include:

  • giving lectures, tours, and seminars about space activities to the general public
  • campaigning for local pro-space candidates
  • building amateur rockets to get the rest of us into space
  • being featured guests on local television promoting space activities
  • taking part in the scientific exploration of the universe with SETI@home.

Read about these and other activities in the chapter newsletter, The Odyssey. Chapter members receive the monthly editions by mail. Many of the articles are also available on line in the Articles section of this site.

YOU can get involved as well! We welcome any and all to find out about us and help us GO into space!
