Space Games Federation® took the leap with the first #EqualSpace™ Challenge to help prove our concept. The call for submissions reaped a bounty of fresh, exciting ideas from professional athletes, scientists, and sports broadcasters, to middle school students who attended our first STEAM+ event. And now…
Powered By Fans, Played By Astroletes®
Explore The New Next
Future #EqualSpace™ Challenges are being planned with established orgs and sports leagues to create and codify the new rules of play before taking both new and traditional sports aboard the Parabola Plane, the International Space Station, asteroids and the Moon, Mars and beyond.
These Challenges will remain a key part of our mission to form leagues and entertain and thrill fans everywhere.
The Marketplace For The Next Generation Is Here
The movement is designed to develop multiple IP, media, merchandising and data opportunities, along with the sponsorship and advertising properties.
Simultaneously SGF will continue rolling out our 10-year STEAM+ initiative, adding Space Athletics and Arts to the STEM movement, making technology, engineering and math “cool”—and helping the next generation get up and move.

How’s it work?
From a stabilized level-flight attitude at 20,000 feet, the aircraft increases attitude. During this phase, the weight is 1.8 times greater than normal weight for 24 seconds. The crew then performs a maneuver called “injection”: the aircraft trajectory is piloted to follow a kind of parabola and the power thrust is reduced. The vertical load factor goes from 1.8g to zero gravity for about 22 seconds. The first pilot adjusts the control stick tilt to maintain the vertical load factor at zero, while the second pilot maintains the roll angle at zero, and the mechanic adjusts the thrust of the engines to cancel the longitudinal load factor. An exit phase at 1.8 g, symmetrical with the entry phase, is then performed on the descending part of the parabola to return the aircraft to a stabilized altitude level within about 20 seconds. Parabolic flights are a gateway to weightlessness. They are dedicated to scientific experiments and to space equipment technological testing. As explained by NASA
Today’s sports need Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, nearly as much as jobs in science. Space Games Federation’s STEAM+ Program adds Sports, Space and Athletics to the current STEM curriculum taught across the country, preparing the next generation for not only terrestrial jobs, but also new careers in all aspects of Space. And with STEAM+ making learning more engaging and fun, Smart really is the new Cool.
Leagues and more
How do I become an Astrolete®?
Space Games Federation® also sees the birth of new professions, jobs and careers like the ASTROLETE®. A combination of “astronaut” and “athlete,” an Astrolete® is a person with the spirit of an athlete and the skills of an astronaut who uses both to compete in various games and sports in zero or microgravity. Everyone who is an astronaut is considered an Astrolete®, as is anyone who completes a training program created and sanctioned by SGF. Check it out for yourself.Yes, I'm interested
