What's It All About?

Back To SpaceTM (BTS) was built for a critical mission - taking the next generation to new frontiers. What began as the brainchild of Danielle Roosa, granddaughter of Apollo 14 astronaut Stuart Roosa, has evolved into a movement to honor American heroes, advance educational opportunities, and ignite the explorer in all of us. 

To reach our trajectory, BTS is developing three key verticals that will serve as our launchpad:

  • PRESERVE our aerospace legacy and the brave astronauts who sacrificed so much to make it possible. Learn More...
  • PREPARE a platform for inspiring students through STEM and connecting kids with our team and astronauts. Learn More...
  • PROPEL engagement and establish inclusive opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), reigniting our space programs! Learn More...

THE MISSION

A space module is being designed and built to hold eight crew members. Based on the goals of the project, the crew will consist of multiple Apollo astronauts, the host of the TV show (Danielle Roosa), and potentially multiple student STEM competition winners.

The Docu-ality

The Back To Space Docu-ality will be a limited TV series starring the original Apollo astronauts hosted by Danielle Roosa. This program will take the audience through the crew selection/training, astronauts working with the commercial space team to produce the space capsule, as well as multiple Apollo 50th anniversary events. Leading up to the live-streamed event, the plot will explore the individual life-stories of these American heroes. Think MythBusters meets Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.
