ispace, Orbit Fab to collaborate on sustainable lunar economy

Dec 2023 | No Comment

ispace and Orbit Fab agreed to collaborate on in-space propellant harvesting and delivery for future missions to the Moon.

The ispace-Orbit Fab partnership will leverage each company’s unique and complementary capabilities to develop effective propellants and fuels from resources in space, such as water, ice, and lunar regolith or fine and rocky soils found on the surface of the Moon.

The memorandum of understanding (MOU), signed by ispace, inc., ispace EUROPE S.A., ispace Technologies U.S., inc., Orbit Fab, Inc., and Orbit, Ltd., sets the stage for a series of innovative demonstrations, including resource mapping and in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) missions aimed at drastically reducing the reliance on supplies from Earth.

The companies ultimately plan for Orbit Fab to refuel ispace lunar landers, as they travel through space to extend lunar and cislunar missions.
