These are the tenets of the Human Space Program culture. They are the principles we believe in, and the agreements we have committed to. We consider it a privilege to play a role in this movement. For that privilege, we commit to upholding these core tenets.
Integrity, kindness, compassion, mindfulness, devotion, and patience are not just expected work etiquette, they are our way of being, no matter the circumstances.
We have relationships with everything from humans to food, communication, work, play, and sleep. We honor the vitality of those relationships by upholding agreements that support them.
We live in a universe that was created for symbiosis. We approach every problem and opportunity with this belief and expectation.
Our experience informs us of caveats and threats. But it is our collective imagination and the unyielding belief that it’s all possible that makes our visions possible.
This mission is delicate and important. We cannot afford to squander an opportunity to optimize our efforts by rushing or cutting corners. As the astronauts say, “Slow is fast”. We care enough to be both thorough and efficient.
