The Way Institute

Before we can reach another solar system, we first have to know the way.

The Way Institute is dedicated to identify, support, invest in, develop and advance the knowledge base required for successful human interstellar travel. Fundamentally a research and development organization, The Way will focus upon and explore the “bleeding edge” physical, life and social sciences, engineering and technologies, economics, art, culture and systems capabilities needed for missions beyond our solar system.

As part of the non-profit 100 Year Starship Foundation, The Way Institute will accomplish its activities through full and part time staff, fellows and volunteers.
