In two days, Space Exploration SE is going public. How will the migration of space-related questions proceed?

Note: it is not my fault that the folks have chosen this moniker. After all, we have IT Security.SE (Sec.SE) and nobody complains.

  • $\begingroup$ Nice title... You know that? (attracts more people) o.O :P $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 24, 2013 at 13:59
  • $\begingroup$ Interesting choice for a name. In French, SEx is considered to be the best way to explore the Seventh Heaven. $\endgroup$

There won't be any:

  • Migration to beta sites is discouraged -- beta sites should grow as organically as possible.
  • Migration of old questions is also discouraged
  • We won't migrate questions which are on-topic here. In the case of a site scope overlap, questions stay where asked.

    $\begingroup$ @DeerHunter 2011. Now we're a bit more wary of migrating to betas. Older betas aren't much of a problem, but it's best to not interfere with newer betas, especially ones which don't have mods. Also, I don't think we get many off topic Space Ex questions here. Most of these questions are on topic because we allow most astronomy questions. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 21, 2013 at 18:25

Well I was just about to post my own topic about this. Space Exploration is being infected by physics questions. Out of the most recent 10 questions, I can count about 4 or 5 that could be questions here.

I want to let everyone know that we're getting new activity partly because of traffic from there. I've linked to a number of physics questions, because Space Exploration produces things are repeats from here.

And let me say that the astronomy detail is quite confusing. Space exploration and astronomy are quite heavily intertwined.

    $\begingroup$ I wouldn't mind stuff being migrated over, though it's best if it stays on Space Ex if on topic there too (if it's becoming an "infection", it may be time to restrict physics questions). Re:intertwined: It's OK if sites overlap. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 22, 2013 at 11:30
