The BIS has long provided thought leadership in Astronautics and Space Activities. An outline of some of the many visionary ideas to arise from the BIS is shown on the Visionary Thinking page. As part of this, various formal and informal technical projects have been created by BIS members over its history, and in some cases, these projects have been adopted as formal BIS Technical projects. A list and links to these projects is shown below:
