Beyond the Boundary
The end of 2014 saw the publication of our book 'Beyond the Boundary': exploring the science and culture of interstellar spaceflight. The book features contributions from members across the organisation on diverse subjects such as the scientific and societal benefits of interstellar exploration, defining the fundamental requirements, the use of wormholes and faster than light travel, interstellar communications, launch vehicles and many other chapters exploring missions scenarios, propulsion options and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).
Voices is a publication to facilitate a voice to the interstellar community at large. It is not just the opinions of members of i4is but anyone else that wishes to express an opinion. The first issue was produced for the near year of 2014 and was originally due for a January release. But here is its, the first issue of Voices edited by i4is Director Keith Cooper.
Principium is the Initiative for Interstellar Studies newsletter featuring articles on deep space propulsion, spacecraft designs and concepts, interviews with prominent personalities in the interstellar community as well as i4is members, and features on SETI, exoplanets, interstellar physics, science fiction and the exploration and utilisation of the Solar System.
This newsletter is free to download as a PDF from these pages, where we will keep a growing backlist of issues. If you would like to contact the Editor, please write to us. Also, if you enjoy reading Principium, don’t forget to share it with your friends, colleagues and relatives and spread the word about i4is’ mission and the quest to develop an interstellar spacecraft.
Issues #1 through #8 were edited by Keith Cooper and produced by Adrian Mann for i4is, the latest issues are edited and produced by i4is Senior Researcher John Davies. If you have any suggestions for future articles please contact us via our website. Copyright © 2018 i4is. All rights reserved.

We at i4is are developing our own smartphone apps. This activity has been spearheaded by Jeremy Clark. The app is temporarily unavailable but we are working on it. Once released the app will allow for the calculation of many astronomy, astrophysics and spaceflight related problems. In addition, it contains a quiz to test your knowledge and help you to learn more about space. More info.
