Through technological innovation, Orion Span cuts the cost of living in space by an order of magnitude over others. Research in zero gravity (aka microgravity) represents some of the most exciting unlocked potential for all humankind. We are therefore subsidizing the cost to host research for qualifying institutions. Space Manufacturing represents an exciting frontier in producing more pristine results in a zero gravity environment than is possible on Earth. Aurora Station leases capacity to in situ manufacturing organizations and 3D printing research. Whether using resources brought to LEO or future captured resources such as asteroids, Aurora Station enables easy pay-as-you-go capacity to use in situ manufacturing capacity and process resources into valuable metals, spacecraft and more.
