To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science


The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint. 

We believe there are transformative discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience, but they can only be accomplished through the unrestricted support of breakthrough research, discovery and innovation. 

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science has mobilized a team of the most experienced, connected and passionately curious minds from the US intelligence community, including the CIA and Department of Defense that have been operating under the shadows of top-secrecy for decades.   The team members all share a common thread of frustration and determination to disrupt the status quo, wanting to use their expertise and credibility to bring transformative science and engineering out of the shadows and collaborate with global citizens to apply that knowledge in a way that benefits humanity.  

Without the restrictions of government priorities. 






There is sufficient credible evidence of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena that proves exotic technologies exist that could revolutionize the human experience.
 




Three synergistic divisions of Science (research), Aerospace (application) and Entertainment (storytelling).





An accelerated path to transformative discoveries and technology applications and inspire global citizens through informative entertainment.
 




A Public Benefit Corporation with positive world impact in mind.

The Company



The Science Division is designed to be a theoretical and experimental laboratory to challenge conventional thinking with the discovery of new world of physics and consciousness-related possibilities and exploring how to use them to affect the world positively. We have access to a global team of research scientists with advanced knowledge to pursue projects which include Human Ultra-Experience Database, Engineering Space-Time Metrics, Brain-Computer Interface, and Telepathy.

Human ultra-experience database - Develop a world-wide digital database cataloguing different types of supranormal experiences, with the goal of creating proprietary algorithms to find detailed patterns and correlate them with other academic research.

Brain-computer interface technology - Explore new approaches for the use of sophisticated technologies to promote direct brain to computer interfaces.

Engineering the space-time metric - Develop next-generation aerospace propulsion technologies, using a concept referred to as metric engineering, which uses advanced math modelling techniques, providing a technology base to the Aerospace Division for future products.

Telepathy - Explore the location in the brain where this phenomenon is centered, and develop protocols for its enhancement and use.



The Aerospace Division is dedicated to finding revolutionary breakthroughs in propulsion, energy, and communication. Our objectives for advanced engineering approaches to fundamental aerospace topics range from Beamed-Energy Propulsion to warp drive metrics. Our team seeks to develop next-generation energy and propulsion concepts for transportation and spaceflight  that could forever change movement across land, water, air and space.

Beamed energy propulsion launch systems - Develop known methodology to launch small satellites into orbit using ground-based laser beams.

Advanced Electrogravitic Propulsion -  Develop exotic aerospace technologies involving forward-thinking physics principles that complement present-day technologies with application from new areas of research.



"This is a concept for an international point-to-point transportation craft that will erase the current travel limits of distance and time.  It mimics the capabilities observed in unidentified aerial phenomenon by employing a drive system that alters space-time metric.  We have glimpses of how the physics of this works, but we need to harvest technologies from the Science Division to "realize" the capability."  - Steve Justice, Aerospace Division Director

Aerospace Division Update by Steve Justice

Friday November 10th, 2017



Since our 11 October launch event, there has been great interest and speculation regarding the details of the Aerospace Division.  Allow me to share some insights into our organization and near-term plans.

The organization is structured to be the central technology and program development arm for TTS Academy.  It is composed of three groups:



  1. Concept Definition - harvest technologies and information from the Science Division for maturation efforts (lab demonstrations and prototyping)

  2. Product Realization - transition prototypes to production operational systems

  3. Operations - support for fielded production systems


As of today, TTS Academy is evaluating hundreds of newly received technical papers and studies created by universities and technology companies.  This information covers materials, physics, and analyses of observed events.  While we evaluate and expand our understanding of breakthrough physics for advanced propulsion, we also expect near-term, demonstrated progress in advancing technology.  We are building plans for experiments with exotic materials and beamed energy propulsion systems. Each effort will be approached using the scientific method to ensure results are substantiated and provide indisputable proof of all claims.

Aerospace Division Director

Farfetched? Inc. reporter Jeff Haden says "I realized it's not"

Wednesday October 25th, 2017

[EXCERPT] Many people assume the path to success lies in focusing on just one thing. If you're great at one thing (or just doing one thing) you can't be an "and," even though Venus Williams is a tennis player and an entrepreneur. Even though Jessica Alba is an actor and an entrepreneur. Even though most successful people achieve success in a variety of pursuits, professional and personal.

We should never be just one thing. We should all be "ands." As I describe in my new book that comes out in January (pre-order it and you'll not only make Penguin Random House happy, you'll also be my new best friend) while we don't all have to be serial entrepreneurs... we should all be serial achievers.

We should all try to be more than one thing -- regardless of what other people might think.

Case in point: Tom DeLonge. If you don't know Tom, he's a multi-platinum selling rock musician (Blink-182, Angels and Airwaves) who turned down a considerable payday from re-uniting with his old band to self-finance a science fiction-related book/music/film project.

Somehow that project led him to have meetings with individuals at the Department of Defense and NASA -- people who don't have sit-downs with anyone, much less rock stars.

And somehow those meetings lead to partnering with a 25-year veteran of the CIA's Director of Operations, a Lockheed Martin Program Director for Advanced Systems at Skunk Works, and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence to start a company to explore "exotic science and technologies" and turn innovative ideas into world-changing products and services.

The result is To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a Public Benefit Corporation that seeks to "collaborate with global citizens to advance science and build a powerful community of interest" that is made up of three divisions: Entertainment, Science, and Aerospace.

Sound like a pretty farfetched "and" for a rock star to pull off?

After taking with Tom and Steve Justice, the Director of the Aerospace Division, I realized it's not.

Investigative Journalist and Author

[Excerpt] Something extraordinary is about to be revealed. Former high-level officials and scientists with deep black experience who have always remained in the shadows are now stepping into the light. These insiders have long-standing connections to government agencies, which may have programs investigating unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). They intend to move into the private sector and to make all declassified information, and any future knowledge, available for all to see.

Offering Circular

The offering circular is the legal document filed with the SEC for a Regulation A offering and provides facts that an investor needs to make an informed investment decision. The offering circular includes an overview of company and company's business, historical financials and capitalization, and key risk factors.

FAQ

What is equity crowdfunding?

In March 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released final rules under Title IV of the JOBS Act to create Regulation A+, paving the way for companies like TTS Academy to raise capital from both accredited and unaccredited investors as an alternative to venture capital.

How is TTS Academy different from other companies of its kind?

There are no other companies like TTS Academy. There are other smaller independent research companies investigating similar technologies. However, TTS Academy is the first and only company to have a focused effort for data collection and study of exotic technologies, apply those technologies to create products with revolutionary capabilities, share the story of that journey through an entertainment division, and serve as a public benefit corporation (PBC). Also unique is the collection of top leadership talent from the government, and aerospace and entertainment industries which brings unprecedented credibility to each of the operating divisions.

What states are ineligible for investment?

Unfortunately we cannot accept investment from the following states of residence (Arizona, Florida, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Dakota, Texas) at this time. Please see 'Plan of Distribution' in our Offering Circular for information about the states where the company is/is not offering securities.

What do you understand about your business that others don't get?

As with any revolutionary concept – be it a business or a technology – there is a large population that believes it cannot be done. Realizing that the impossible is only something that hasn’t been seen before is the first step. The TTS Academy team believes that, despite the rapid advance of technology in our world today, there are undiscovered breakthroughs in physics which can fundamentally advance our world. TTS Academy has been specifically structured to find clues to those technologies and transition them to products that improve our world.

What's your biggest risk?

Funding. A quote from the film “The Right Stuff” is truly relevant: “No bucks, no Buck Rogers.” Funding is the one of the enablers of innovation. TTS Academy has assembled the other critical enablers: innovation-driven leadership and a company structured to allow that innovation spirit to flourish.

What has been your biggest obstacle so far? How did you overcome it?

Our largest obstacle to date has been presenting the concept of TTS Academy in a way that separated it from the doubters and “profiling” that arises when one speaks of non-mainstream subjects such as the study of UAP technologies. Until now, proof of official government interest has been only speculation. Through years of groundwork, discussions, and presentations, we have been successful in drawing interest from unexpected organizations. The reveals at the live event are proof of the effective credibility we have established.

What do you tell people who are skeptical of your chances of success?

For those that are skeptical, we ask that you allow us to share our journey. TTS Academy is structured to educate, inform, and entertain. Watch us. Do your own investigation. Challenge us with what you find. If you do that, we are certain that you will begin to understand our mission and our purpose to bring #profoundpossibilities to reality.

Can I invest if I am in Canada?

Unfortunately, we are not permitted to accept investment from Canadian citizens or residents. We hope you'll follow our progress at tothestarsacademy.com.
