Dr. Rosin 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’s Your Turn” educational program to motivate youth, women, and minorities in fields of science and technology as they could be applied to achieving world peace in a clean and safe environment for all. Their program won various awards including the Aviation Writers Award, Science Teachers Gold Medal, and others. Rosin 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. Dr. Rosin is the founder of the Institute for Security and Cooperation in Outer Space, ISCOS. World Peace Ambassador, International Association of Educators for World Peace, IAEWP (NGO, UN-ECOSOC)
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, Rosin
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. The new ISCOS Boards are soon to be
Rosin 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.
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, Carol
received an Honorary Doctorate for her work in developing countries from
Archbishop Solomon Gbadebo, of Orthodox College in Nigeria.
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.
Rosin 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
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 Dr. Rosin, 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
book, SPACE CAREERS, was co-authored 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

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

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
company Celestis, Inc. afforded Dr. Rosin 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.
Rosin 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 craft: endeavors that will provide enormous
jobs and profits.
After several years living abroad, working from the local to the presidential
level, Dr. Rosin has returned to the USA to introduce an exciting new Plan of
Action, the Outer Space Security and Development Treaty of 2011 (See http://www.peaceinspace.com)
