Xplore is a leading edge Seattle-based Space Startup uniquely offering “Space as a ServiceTM.”
The company’s multi-mission spacecraft – called the Xcraft – provides the ability for millions of people to participate in the exploration of space. Xplore is planning missions from the Earth, to the Moon and beyond.
Founder and COO Lisa Rich said in a statement, “Xplore is on a mission to accelerate scientific knowledge to benefit humanity — and for our part, we will start by expanding the human footprint by giving citizens the ability to send their name to the Moon so they are represented on our journey.”
And today, a major announcement:
Prominent space industry leader, Dylan Taylor has secured a payload reservation on Xplore’s multi-mission spacecraft. As part of their mission, they will host a payload and provide services for Space for Humanity, a non-profit dedicated to democratizing space.
Building off the launch revolution, a variety of new commercial vectors have emerged through Xplore’s concept of Space as a Service. From communications, Datasets…even spirituality.
But this isn’t your typical launch event.
Mr. Taylor’s resume as a CEO and investor is particularly unique, and the work he’s doing with Space for Humanity and other outlets could mean he’s planning a historic maiden mission. Which brings us to the most interesting part of the press release we received…
The omission of a cargo manifest and first privately funded mission to the Moon, with a mysterious package onboard. Quite a story.
