ispace is a private lunar exploration company with a vision to extend human presence into outer space. In order for mankind to live in space, we would need a sustainable ecosystem. The first step is to utilize space resources and establish an economy in space — starting from the Moon.
According to recent studies, the Moon houses an abundance of precious minerals on its surface, and an estimated 6 billion tons of water ice at its poles. In particular, water can be broken down into oxygen and hydrogen to produce efficient rocket fuel. With a fuel station established in space, the world will witness a revolution in the space transportation system.
To achieve this, ispace is developing micro-robotic technology to provide a low-cost and frequent transportation service to and on the Moon, conduct lunar surface exploration to map, process and deliver resources to our customers in cislunar space.
