ISECCo Home Sponsors Papers, Interviews & Press Meeting Notice Join


Scientific information is generally distributed via papers and presentations. As such we wanted to provide you with an easy link to the papers we have written over the years. We also include our interviews and press releases here to provide more information and background on our organization and activities.

Papers & Posters

Our first paper is more of a book. We call it Outline, for it outlines what we are aiming to do.

Marshgas is a paper on an experiment we did on the components of anaerobic decomposition.

Earthworms are a crucial component of our ecosystem. Charles Darwin spent a large part of his adult life researching earthworms, and Ray R. Collins did an in-depth research paper on earthworms and their importance to our CELSS (defined) project.

Because of the number of Mars Base Zero papers, we have written a page just for them.


In late March, 1992 the APRN (defined) interviewed Ray Collins about Nauvik.
