In 20 years this startup will have built a city on the moon!

ispace’s vision is clear: in 20 years, they will have built a city on the moon. For this lunar exploration and robotics startup, the entire future of the Earth itself rests on us harnessing the potential of our moon. The key: locating the moon’s water. Water can be converted into fuel, which in turn can power their crafts, creating the first, low-cost Earth-moon transport service, through which all the equipment necessary for life can be safely delivered. 

To achieve this dream, ispace are developing small, lightweight landers and rovers to make lunar surface exploration a reality. In 2020, a moon orbiting mission is planned, and their first moon landings set for 2021.

At the IFA, ispace are keen to meet prospective customers keen on joining their mission and making moon living a reality.
