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: Focusing on our aerospace legacy and the brave astronauts who sacrificed so much to make it possible, BTS is creating a TV show around the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The limited mini-series will honor the past and serve to inspire a limitless future by combining entertainment and education. It’s more than a documentary; it’s not just another reality show . . . it’s a Docu-ality!
- PREPARE: Developing a platform for middle and high school students nationwide, BTS is engineering a STEM program that will provide interactive resources and connect kids with our team and astronauts. As our project grows, we hope to give our hardest-working students the opportunity to become a member of the crew!
- PROPEL: What important step can we take now to spark engagement and establish inclusive opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)? Reignite our space programs! BTS is propelling this initiative by putting astronauts back into space aboard a commercial capsule, and we want to turn their mission into an awe-inspiring, action-oriented educational tool for classrooms around the country.
