Christopher Altman is an American physicist, quantum technologist ​, international diplomat and NASA-trained commercial astronaut ​ who began his scientific career with a world record-holding artificial intelligence project and a NASA/USAF–supported time travel division ​at multidisciplinary, “ Deep Future ​” research institute Starlab ​, featured in a Discovery Channel Special and in the Guinness Book of World Records .

As Director of the Board and Chief Science Officer for the world's first commercial astronaut corps, then as Director with the Tau Zero Interstellar Foundation, successor to the NASA Breakthrough Propulsion Physics program, his research spans the fields of quantum technology and next-generation spaceflight. His inaugural keynote address ​​ as an astronaut candidate ​ was broadcast live to 108 sister cities around the world. NASA allocated funding to the corps for its first manned spaceflights the following spring. [1] [2] [3]

RSA Information Security Award Outstanding Achievement in Government Policy

His contributions have been recognized with honors and awards that include the AIEJ Japanese Fulbright Fellowship ​, in the Guinness Book of World Records, with the annual RSA Award ​for Outstanding Achievement in Government Policy, a joint US Department of Defense–Department of Energy Salishan High-Performance Computing ​ graduate fellowship, dual consecutive Templeton fellowships in quantum physics with the Anton Zeilinger ​research group in Austria, appointments to diplomatic and humanitarian aid missions worldwide as Extraordinary Ambassador at Large for Peace, Human Rights, Space and Next Generation Technologies, and as Special Envoy to the United Nations and the European Union. [5] [8] [6] [116]

When Starlab ​ came up short on research funds and serendipity brought him to the same Brussels hotel as George W. Bush on his inaugural trip overseas, he sought the counsel of the President himself to save the lab, requesting $1M in support under mandate of the 2000 National Nanotechnology Initiative ​ created under tenure of President Bill Clinton ​.

For his contributions to the program, he was selected by the US Government as one of three graduate students most likely to impact the future of the field at the Salishan conference, sponsored to attend conferences and senior administrator briefings at NSA headquarters outside Washington, DC, attended the World Technology Summit in London, and was an invited delegate to the French Sénat to provide testimony on the future of artificial intelligence ​ and how it will transform our lives over coming decades. [5] [113]

In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, he volunteered and was subsequently elected to serve as Chairman for a UN Disarmament and International Security Committee​, leading several hundred diplomats to address and combat the threats of international terrorism, global and regional nuclear security, and information warfare ​.

His Chair Report to the UN General Assembly ​ on the promise and perils presented by the rapid acceleration of unpredictable advances in converging technologies was read by the Secretary General ​, at the Executive Office of the President, by National Security Advisors, at Presidential and Prime Minister's offices around the world, was reviewed by national security advisor Condoleezza Rice, open source intelligence founder Robert David Steele ​, and futurists Alvin & Heidi Toffler —was instrumental in building political momentum and influencing Congressional policy to establish the foundations for US Cyber Command ​—and was subsequently recognized with the 2004 Award for Outstanding Achievement in Government Policy. [26] [5]

As part of the DARPA Quantum Information Science and Technology ( QuIST ​) Program​, Altman traveled the world to visit leading national labs, cutting-edge corporate and university research centers, interviewing top researchers and Nobel laureates to craft long-term national assessments on the future of quantum technology for principal US research and funding agency directors. His reports went on to serve as the template for the official US Quantum Roadmap—an accolade conveyed directly by the program's chairman, Los Alamos ​ physicist Richard Hughes. [107] [115] [127]

Inaugural NASA Quantum Future Technologies Conference

Following the inaugural NASA Quantum Future Technologies Conference, he brought together a team of world-record holding inventors and pioneers in secure quantum communications ​, serving as principal investigator on a joint research proposal under DARPA Quiness ​ and NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts ​mandate to create the world's first global, space-based quantum teleportation ​ network— Astronaut Development and Deployment of a Secure Quantum Space Communications Channel.

Altman is chief scientist for multibillion dollar renewable energy crypto-currency SolarCoin ​; co-founder and chief scientist for ElectriCChain, the decentralized, self-organizing swarm intelligence ​, Internet-of-Things ​ ( IoT) that forms SolarCoin's blockchain ​backbone. The incentive was launched with the mission of accelerating our transition to a post-scarcity economy ​ by encouraging solar energy ​ to initiate the energy singularity ​—the transition from fossil fuels to a sustainable, renewable energy: based economy. [112] [118] [128]

Our mission in founding SolarCoin ​ and ElectriCChain ​—to accelerate our societal transition from petroleum-dependent, war-scourged, scarcity economics to a renewable energy​ based, peaceful, post-scarcity economy ​​—is now shared with Elon Musk ​.

SolarCoin aims to incentivize a planet powered largely by solar energy. To this end, SolarCoin is on a mission to build the foundation for a global energy transition by awarding SolarCoins to solar energy producers, creating the first global, energy-referenced currency.

To date, the project has granted more than 8 Million MWh of solar power ​ across 62 countries —enough to power the city of Amsterdam and its residents for a full year.

Each coin issued to renewable energy producers represents an equivalent carbon offset ​ of 680 kilograms of carbon dioxide. With a total market supply of more than US $40 Billion to be distributed over the next 35 years, the currency places 5 th in total market value behind Bitcoin ​, Ethereum ​ and Ripple. [22] [112] [128]

Counting more than seven million real-time solar monitoring stations in sixty-two countries around the globe—estimated by UN projections to grow to more than 200 Million over the next decade—the program has been recognized by the United Nations ​ and the International Renewable Energy Agency ​ ( IRENA ​) as the lowest carbon currency, the largest environmental monitoring experiment, and the largest private renewable energy ​ project in the world. [112] [22] [23] [126] [125]

The global climate change initiative has been covered extensively by international press in thirty countries, with more than 100 featured publications in sources such as Forbes: “ How Blockchain is Incentivizing a 5,000 Gigawatt Quest to Save the Planet . [149]
