We are Content creators. Animators. Moderators. Editors. Vloggers. Bloggers.
Our community is united by a passion for space technology, space travel and space exploration. We are ambassadors of technological progress, innovative approaches and the will of mankind to embark on a journey to the stars.

But leaving this one strange rock, we find ourselves just a few hundred miles above our heads in a dark, lonely and hostile environment. Everyone we know; everyone we knew; every person we may have heard of was born and raised "down here" - on this comparatively small blue orb we call "Earth".

Whether we are lucky enough to go into space or spend our entire lives on Earth, space is the border we all share. In keeping with this principle, the global community has prioritized international peaceful cooperation. Space-faring nations have chosen to explore the universe together and to work together to overcome the limits that are naturally set for us.

In addition to natural borders, man-made, geopolitical boundary lines have been drawn to organize our coexistence. In the UN Charter, we defined aggression as the most serious crime against peace, and thus agreed that these borders must not be aggressively violated.

All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.

Charter of the United Nations, Art. 2 (4)

On February 24, 2022, the world has become a different place.

Russland hat eine unprovozierte militärische Aggression gegen die Ukraine gestartet. In Europa herrscht wieder Krieg. Darüber hinaus verlagert diese Aggression die Frage irdischer Grenzen auch in den Weltraum.

Vladimir Putin is pushing the whole world dangerously close to the abyss. If we fall, there will be no escape for generations. This is a threat we take seriously. Because every picture of the Earth shows us how fragile our home planet is - no matter how inconspicuous or spectacular. As Carl Sagan said, we live on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Our future does not belong in the hands of a ruthless dictator. Because of Putin's war of aggression, the people of Ukraine find themselves in a dark, lonely and hostile environment. Down here on earth, through no fault of their own.

We strongly condemn this action and call on Vladimir Putin to stop this madness immediately!

In these dark hours, we are united not only by our passion for space, but also by our thoughts for the people suffering from Russian aggression in Ukraine. We are content creators. Animators. Moderators. Editors. Vloggers. Bloggers. We are advocates for peace.
