Who? (Mr. Kim Peart)
Kim Peart is a visual artist from Tasmania, who engaged with the space settlement ideas of Gerard K. O’Neill in 1976. After three decades of waiting, Kim wrote a document in 2006 ….. Creating a Solar Civilization ….. exploring why we needed to expand human society beyond Earth. Survival was the top reason. Since 2006 Kim has been working on the shape of a global campaign for space, which is now ready to run. Space Pioneers was founded in 2011 by Kim Peart and Jennifer Bolton.
Who? (Dr. Jennifer Bolton)
Dr. Jennifer Bolton has a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from the University of Sydney and a Postgraduate Diploma in Science (Biochemistry) from the University of Queensland. Her PhD in Molecular Genetics, also from the University of Queensland, focussed on the role of retinoic acid-responsive genes in embryonic development. Jennifer has held research positions with the School of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland and the Division of Livestock Industries within the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). In her current role as Science Officer with Space Pioneers she provides technical support for web-based and virtual world projects as well as researching emerging technologies that will impact life on Earth and in space including robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and next-generation virtual world platforms. Jennifer's research interests also include the use of space technology to improve environmental conditions on Earth. A current project explores the potential of space-based solar power to combat climate change by providing the energy needed to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations through ambient air capture and carbon dioxide utilisation.
