Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the world to Astra.
For the past three years, we’ve been quietly building a space company unlike any other. The team we’ve assembled consists of amazingly talented engineers, designers, fabricators and operators.
Our goal is to reshape how the space industry works, starting with how we get there. By offering smaller more frequent launches, Astra will enable a wave of innovation in low Earth orbit and improve life on our planet through greater connectivity and more regular observation.
Industry giants and a wave of new startups are racing to create trillions of dollars of new economic activity in space. Last year alone, nearly $6 billion was invested into space companies, many of which intend to disrupt the industry. What these innovators need are more flights taking their satellites precisely where they need to go.
We’re excited to reach this next critical stage as a company, and we’re confident in our vision for space. But, as we’ve all gleaned throughout our careers, space keeps you humble. Still, it’s the sense of possibility, the chance to innovate and make a difference here on Earth, that fuels our passion.
