My goal is to raise awareness around the need for science education, provide 1,000 schools with kits to send and take photos from space, and of course to trade my way to a trip to outer space. The end result could be something like a trip on a suborbital space ship, a 2 week stay on the international space station, or a trip around the moon. I'm not going to be picky. The nature of each trade will need to be "space related". This is intentionally vague and meant to be a creative undertaking -- I'm curious to see how far we can stretch what exactly "space related" will mean ;)
I started with a single Toy Plastic Spaceship -- I think I bought this in Toronto a few years ago, with this very idea in mind. The first trade was with the man who inspired this whole process, Kyle from One Red Paperclip traded me the actual space bar from the keyboard he used while trading a paper clip for a house about 5 years ago.
