Welcome to the Spaceflight101 Member Area

If you appreciate the detailed, in-depth technical content provided by Spaceflight101, please consider supporting the project through a pledge on Patreon. Direct contributions are an enormous help in keeping the site open and expanding coverage and technical content areas. As a direct supporter, you will have exclusive advantages such as a fully ad-free experience on all pages as well as access to members-only content.

How do I become a Member?

Simply head over to Patreon.com and pick a support tier of your choosing. For as little as ten cents a day, you can enjoy Spaceflight101.com stripped of all advertising and gain access to the member area. After placing your pledge, you will receive an E-Mail with instructions on how to activate your membership. (The manual account setup process is typically completed within two days of placing your pledge.)

I do not have a Patreon account, how can I support the project?

Users are encouraged to sign up through Patreon as their system provides a simple payment solution for supporters and handles formalities for creators. If your wish is to contribute outside of Patreon, please fill out this form and you will be provided payment information through Paypal.

I am not in a position to provide financial support, will I lose access to Spaceflight101 content?

No. All content that is now freely available on the site is there to stay and will not vanish behind a paywall. Members will have access to bonus content that does not take away from the overall site content posted in the open areas. You will however, continue to see advertising across the site.

I use AdBlock, why pay at all?

Running a site like this isn’t cheap – bills have to be paid for servers, backup services and a whole bunch of other things including the individuals putting in considerable time to create content that is of value to you. If you appreciate the work we do, please consider making a small contribution – either through whitelisting Spaceflight101 or providing direct support to the project through Patreon.
