Advisory Board

Dr. Carol Rosin

Carol Rosin, Hon Ph.D. is an award-winning educator, child psychologist, futurist, international speaker, author, military strategist, and space and missile defense consultant.

She is Founder of the Institute for Security and Cooperation in Outer Space. She is also World Peace Ambassador, International Association of Educators for World Peace, IAEWP (NGO, UN-ECOSOC).

Carol is an educator, perhaps best known as the original political architect of the movement to stop the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) and Anti-Satellite Weapons (ASATs). Carol became the first woman executive in the aerospace industry, a Corporate Manager at Fairchild Industries, a U.S. aerospace company, where she was also spokesperson for the late Dr. Wernher von Braun, the “father of rocketry”.

With von Braun, Carol coordinated the award-winning “It&rsquo ;s Your Turn” educational program to motivate youth, women, and minorities in fields of science and technology so they could help achieve world peace with a clean and safe environment for all. Their program won various awards including the Aviation Writers Award, the Science Teachers Gold Medal, and others.

Carol helped set up the ATS-6 satellite educational and medical training programs across the U.S. in Appalachia, the Rocky Mountains, and Alaska, and the first national and international two-way, audio-visual satellite educational programs in over 20 countries, including 5,000 villages in India.

Upon leaving Fairchild after the death of von Braun, Carol became the National Chancellor of the International Association of Educators for World Peace (IAEWP), founded by Dr. Charles Mercieca, in consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council. After bringing several experts to the UN Second Special Session of the Peaceful Uses and Exploration of Outer Space in Vienna, Austria, Carol founded the Institute for Security and Cooperation in Outer Space (ISCOS) in 1983.

In that initial incarnation of ISCOS, the Board included Honorary Board Chairman Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Chairman of the Advisory Board Apollo Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, and Advisory Board members that included the late Dr. Rashmi Mayur, the late Dr. Buckminster (Bucky) Fuller, the late Dr. Isaac Asimov, attorney Daniel Sheehan, and many others.

Carol was a witness in The Disclosure Project at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in May, 2001. She has appeared in numerous media productions, interviews, and publications, and on YouTube. She has served on technical and non-technical boards including the Advisory Board of The Exopolitics Institute, and among her awards was the United Societies in Space award for her 30 years of Humanitarian Work for the Peaceful Uses of Space for Peace on Earth.

Carol and ISCOS are well-known for having helped start the movement to prevent the weaponization of space, and for educating the public and decision makers about the benefits and opportunities from space R&D, exploration, and living and working in space. As an international consultant and speaker to countless audiences, Carol started the movements to “Stop Star Wars,” the “Leaky Umbrella Campaign” first introduced on The Larry King Show on CNN, the “Campaign for Peace In Space,” and the “Campaign to Save Outer Space”…which ultimately involved approximately 50 million people.

Her educational work has been focused on various aspects of space issues and actions and their relevance to achieving peace and a clean environment on Earth. Carol is dedicated to banning all space-based weapons. She has spoken around the world regarding civil, commercial, entrepreneurial, and military world cooperation in space in order to reap the potential benefits for all.

These benefits include a new kind of security, economic conversion and stimulation, and Space Age solutions to solve urgent and potential problems of health, education, poverty, to aid in the amelioration of natural and man-made disasters, and to transform the war industry into a space industry to end war and finally achieve peace – all in the context of human evolution into a higher consciousness and the truth regarding the existence of Cosmic Cultures.

Born in Wilmington, Delaware, USA, graduate of the University of Delaware where she earned her Bachelor’s of Science, Carol received an Honorary Doctorate for her work in developing countries from Archbishop Solomon Gbadebo, of Orthodox College in Nigeria.

She educates about how to transform the entire war industry and war-based economy, feasibly and verifiably, into a peaceful space industry on Earth and in space and how we can rise to a higher frequency above our old ways of thinking, perceiving, and behaving. Removing the intention to weaponize space is a necessary step in the process to provide us all with a real security system and a stimulated economy based on world cooperation in space.

Carol is an official Advisor to the People’s Republic of China. During the Cold War, she visited many countries to speak about the issue of peace in space for peace on earth. She met many times with people on all levels and in many areas of the Soviet Union in order to discuss possible cooperative space ventures and the vitally important ban on all space-based weapons.

She returned to the U.S. with the first list of joint U.S./USSR space ventures on which the Soviets had agreed to work. She initiated the first ever visit by nine U.S. Senators to the Soviet Union as well as the first private, off the record, military-to-military meeting between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. She participated in several U.S./USSR citizen diplomat programs in order to encourage cooperation in space and the ban of all space-based weapons. (Both China and Russia have announced they would sign an agreement to ban all space-based weapons.)

ISCOS produced the first legislation introduced in the U.S. House by Rep. Joe Moakley and in the Senate by Sen. Tom Harkin to ban all space-based weapons. At the instigation of Carol, a later bill, the Space Preservation Act, was introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich. This was the first time in U.S. history that U.S. legislation was accompanied by a World Treaty, the Space Preservation Treaty.

Her book, Space Careers, was coauthored with the late Dr. Charles Sheffield. She created the first international aerospace telephone book for the International Astronautical Federation Congress.

Carol replaced the late futurist/author/scientist Dr. Isaac Asimov as Coordinator of the Space Commission for the World Government of World Citizens founded by Garry Davis. She is a five star General in the First Earth Battalion founded by Lt. Col. Jim Channon, (U.S. Army, ret.)

Carol was a consultant to TRW on the MX missile, weather satellites, and the time/money/management of the space shuttle and applications reports.

Carol has consulted to companies and organizations including General Dynamics, IBM Europe, The National Space Institute, and many corporations, militaries (including the Space Command), intelligence organizations (including the CIA), government offices from the Congress to the White House, to countless NGOs, to high level officials, and grassroots around the globe. Carol has spoken at many meetings of civil, commercial, governmental, intelligence, militaries, and to representatives of NASA and other international space agencies.

Carol created the Space Development Initiative (SDI), as the alternative that could replace the Space Defense Initiative (SDI). Carol was Space Conversion Advisor to Presidential Candidate, the Rev. Jesse Jackson during his run for the White House. Rev. Jackson introduced this alternative SDI vision as part of his U.S. Presidential Campaign Platform. Carol presented the Space Development Initiative vision when she was keynote speaker at the U.S. California Democratic Convention as well as at several Republican and other political meetings.

She testified before both the Senate Armed Services and the House Ways and Means committees in the U.S. Congress, educating about the importance and benefits of banning ALL space-based weapons and transforming the war game into a space game…without space-based weapons.

Carol worked with Congressman Les AuCoin to create legislation to prevent the development and testing of anti-satellite weapons (ASATs). She testified before the President’s Commission on Space, emphasizing the inexorable link between commercial and military space ventures.

Carol was a Space Action Coordinator and Educator in Buckminister Fuller’s “The World Game.”

The company Celestis, Inc. afforded Carol the opportunity to keep a promise to her friend Dr. Timothy Leary to launch his ashes into outer space aboard a Pegasus rocket from the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain. Also aboard that initial launch were the ashes of other space luminaries, including rocket scientist Kraft Ehricke, space physicist Dr. Gerard O’Neill, Todd Hawley, the founder of the International Space University, and the creator of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry, 26 people in all…an example of a non-weapons, peaceful, international cooperative space venture.

Carol has authored numerous articles and appeared in many media productions, publications, and interviews talking about replacing war projects with peace projects such as building space habitats, hotels, hospitals, schools, labs, industries, farms, elevators, and crafts — endeavors that will provide enormous jobs and profits.

After several years living abroad, working from the local to the presidential level, Carol has returned to the USA to introduce an exciting new Plan of Action, the Outer Space Security and Development Treaty of 2011. This Treaty was drafted by Dr. C. B. Scott Jones (President, Peace & Emergency Action Coalition for Earth); Apollo Astronaut and Founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Edgar Mitchell; retired Navy Commander Will Miller; and retired Boeing executive Abe Krieger.
