Uplift Aerospace (NRP Stone - Symbol: NRPI) is delighted to announce that they will be traveling to Paris, France from September 18th-23rd, 2022 to attend the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) with the Space+5 astronaut class. The historic announcement will be made during Yuri’s Night on September 21st, 2022. The IAC 2022 theme will be “Space for @ll” to reach beyond the space community and bring together diverse communities, offering great opportunities for networking and forging new contacts and potential partnerships.

Space+5 is a commercial astronaut class of five individuals selected in June, 2022 to train as commercial astronauts as part of Uplift’s Space+ Web3 Space Program. The Space+5 includes Ruben Salinas as the first Astronaut and group leader, Sydney Hamilton, Mike Mongo, Trent Tresch, and Joan Melendez-Misner. As the first chosen astronaut and community ambassador, Ruben Salinas will travel to space aboard an upcoming Blue Origin New Shepard rocket. The full Space+5 class is training to support the mission and will also fly if an additional opportunity arises.

Space+ is the world’s first Web3 Space Program by Uplift Aerospace to increase access and diversity in space while conserving the Earth. The Space+5 is a five person astronaut class pioneering culture in space through historic activations focused on our key pillars: Art, Science and Philanthropy. The Space+5 is the first astronaut class building toward creating Uplift Aerospace’s “Starborn Space Program”. The Starborn Space Program is working to create a range of missions over the long-term that will contract a diverse group of individuals from the community to train and serve as commercial astronauts. Membership to the space program is facilitated through ownership of Launch Pass NFT tokens that double as membership for real-life access to space, including suborbital space flights, the International Space Station, astronaut training, and other authentic space related events.

The Starborn Space Program is using artificial reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), NFTs, cryptocurrency, and blockchain technology to increase access and diversity in space by providing space experiences and opportunities for its members. The upcoming Starborn NFT collection will provide access to a Web3 metaverse for holders that provides a technological bridge for commerce and culture between Earth and space.


Uplift Aerospace, Inc. is an emerging leader in the rapidly transforming space industry, pioneering revolutionary systems to manufacture, trade, and deliver products for a multiplanetary economy.
