The ISAAC Organization

... cum Unitas Universi ~ ... with Unity comes the Universe

About I.S.A.A.C.

The ISAAC Organization is a multi-agency civilian organization which is dedicated to the peaceful exploration and use of outer space. Each member agency has secured the cooperation of its own governmental space agency; and many have also obtained financial support from local corporate entities and private civilian agencies to further the charter goals of the organization as a whole.

Member agencies pledge to further the ISAAC growth curricula and dedicate a significant (yet reasonable and sustainable) amount of assistance to ISAAC, to advance its specific in-progress projects. Assistance need not necessarily be in the form of financial backing, but often includes:

  • performance of manfucaturing tasks,
  • testing of vehicles, equipment, or materials,
  • the training and educational advancement of inter-departmental agency staff,
  • and the acceptance of other sub-contractual duties.

Member agencies are free to pursue their own independent space exploration goals, but these pursuits must uphold and adhere to basic ISAAC operational guidelines. They may also draw from ISAAC core financial and equipment resources with prior approval of the corporate regulatory committee.

ISAAC stands for the International Space Association Agreement Co-operative; and received its name in commemoration of Sir Isaac Newton, world renowned scientist of the past.

ISAAC upholds the concept that numerous scientists and explorers of the past should be recognized for their advancement of science and knowledge through their peaceful studies. They have bettered our planet, and have given indescribable benefit to the human condition as a whole. ISAAC seeks to name spacecraft, space stations, science platforms, and other equipment after as many persons of science as possible.

Launch Pad 48A

ISAAC Organization's latest endeavor: Launch pad 48A.

Launch Pad 48A is newly constructed, and is a heavily upgraded design of NASA's launch pad 39A. It was specifically built for shuttle launches.

New features incorporated by ISAAC engineers include:

  • A wider overall launch pad to accommodate larger vehicles such as the shuttle.
  • A higher launch surface to allow improved venting of heat and smoke through upgraded flame trenches.
  • Four channel flame trenches, instead of the customary two.
  • A wider and more stable launch tower.
  • Dual interconnected water-based sound-suppression systems, instead of just one single initiation suppressor).

The Centauri Spaceworks ISAAC Star

Centauri Spaceworks News Item: 10 May 2018

ISAAC Star 1.gif

Centauri Spaceworks started work on developing an navigational aid. This device emits a bright beam of light on regular intervals, similar to a lighthouse or a pulsar. The device is designed to help guide astronauts in space back to HOM and the Space Agency Wiki. The official name is InterStellar nAvigation Assistance deviCe, but is nicknamed the ISAAC Star in honor of one of the major contributors to the Space Agency Wiki who has been away for some time.

At the core of the ISAAC Star are two space telescopes that have been modified to emit bright beams of light. These are powered by a nuclear reactor. Once assembled the devices is spun up to a specific rotation. The rotation causes the ISAAC Star to appear to flash at a specific frequency.

The initial test of the ISAAC Star was a partial success. The device was able to be spun up and maintain a stable position in space. However there was not enough fuel on board the two converted telescopes to be able to spin the device up to the desired speed and have enough fuel to decelerate it when maintenance was required. More research is required to make this a functional device.
