Space Architecture R&D
Aurelia Institute is an advanced technology research institute for foundational infrastructure for a space society. Our experts are concerned with the structures, materials, technologies, and in-space manufacturing techniques that will make it possible to build larger-scale habitats and increase the number and diversity of people who can participate in life in orbit. We are a fast-moving fabrication and deployment team, with regular spaceflight launches to test and iterate on our engineering concepts.
Education & Outreach
At Au~~r~~elia Institute, we want to make space real and accessible to all. People of all ages, backgrounds, and skill sets should have the opportunity to understand what space is about, what’s available to them, and how they might live, play, and work effectively in different space environments. Aurelia Institute creates and collaborates on outreach programs to engage broad audiences in direct spaceflight opportunities, educational courses to broaden access to insider knowledge and train the next generation, and community building to grow a global, professional membership network.
Aurelia Institute’s policy arm considers the real and philosophical challenges of creating an inclusive, equitable, and accessible foundation for a society in space–from negotiating resource sharing in the “space commons,” to key governance questions for future human settlements, to the ethics of novel technology development upon which human life in extreme environments will depend.
