To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, often shortened to To the Stars Academy (TTSA), is a public benefit corporation, initially started in 2105 by Tom DeLonge, with the aim of creating a consortium among science, aerospace and entertainment.
On Facebook they describe themselves as follows:
To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science is a consortium of scientists, aerospace engineers and creatives that will work collectively to allow gifted researchers the freedom to explore exotic science and technologies with the infrastructure and resources to rapidly transition innovative ideas into world-changing products and services.
As a Public Benefit Corporation, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science will look to collaborate with global citizens in all efforts to advance science and build a powerful community of interest. The company is raising capital from both accredited and unaccredited investors as an alternative to venture capital.
"The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint," says company President and interim CEO Tom DeLonge. "We believe there are discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience, but they can only be accomplished through the unrestricted support of breakthrough research and innovation."
Reported partners include
- Jim Semivan (Vice President Operations),
