As Project Lead for SpaceGAMBIT, Alex handles operational and management duties for the organization, travels around the world looking for projects to fund, and works with hackerspaces and makerspaces to improve the survival of humanity in space. SpaceGAMBIT democratizes space technology by funding open-source projects that tackle everything holding us back from being a spacefaring species. We work with partners and the maker movement to find out what’s keeping us stuck on Earth, engage the crowd to find solutions, and share the results with the world. We’ve worked with NASA and the White House, and are always seeking more partners to help us hack humanity to the stars.
