Ethos Space

If you believe in a coming space economy, the greatest commercial opportunity is in-space propellant refueling. Our vision is to build a planetary sunshade to protect Earth.

Anywhere in space it's cheaper to bring fuel and resources from the Moon than from Earth. We will map the ice with an instrumented rover powered via laser beamed from the sunlit crater rim.

  1. Map lunar ice in economic detail.
  2. Mine it to make rocket fuel.
  3. Sell fuel in orbit.
  4. Expand lunar production to metals and powder.
