    PROJECT

    ispace aims to be a vehicle for companies on Earth to access new business opportunities on the Moon and ultimately incorporate the Moon into Earth’s economic and living sphere. Originating from the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition, in which ispace managed Team HAKUTO, one of the 5 finalists in the competition, ispace is now currently working on achieving the world’s first commercial lunar exploration program, named “HAKUTO-R” which consists of ispace’s first two lunar missions.

    The first mission will perform a soft landing on the Moon. This will be the first privately-led Japanese mission to land on the lunar surface.

    The second mission will perform a soft landing and deploy a rover for surface exploration and data collection on the Moon.

    From Mission 3 and beyond, we will increase the frequency of lunar landings and rover expeditions to transport customer payloads to the Moon. Our landers will deploy swarms of rovers to the lunar surface to pioneer the discovery and development of lunar resources, enabling the steady development of lunar industry and human presence on the Moon.
