What if science could move faster?
We're designing that future today. Made in Hoboken, NJ, we’re Hudson Space Systems. Our goal is to make access to space research affordable and accessible for all.
What is microgravity?
Every object we put in orbit is actually just in free fall around the planet. We call this floating effect microgravity, because these perpetually falling objects appear to be weightless.
These conditions offer incredible opportunities to learn about and research phenomena not easily observed on Earth. From corporate researchers investigating petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductors to academic researchers investigating microbiology and stem cells, many are already experimenting in space. Microgravity is already accelerating and widening R&D for companies today.

Well...that’s the problem. The launch providers currently servicing this market are already operating at capacity, with extremely long lead times and sky high prices, which also means there are few chances for iterative experimentation. Because of this, opportunities to research in microgravity are limited.
And that’s where you come in?
Exactly. Bringing together a team of quirky rocket scientists, we’ve developed and built an innovative, fully-reusable launch platform. We can increase launch frequencies, lower costs, and remove the traditional barriers to sending experiments in space. We’re using our affordable and streamlined suborbital rocket technology to offer rides to space (and back) for research payloads, on a dependable schedule and at attainable rates.
We want to make researching in microgravity as easy as ordering a lab test here on Earth. With our suborbital flights, researchers will have a dependable schedule of launches to book a spot on, and full integration services to help them carry out their experiments.

No wait list. Period. You want to do cutting edge science, we want to make that happen ASAP. Our fleet is ready when you are.
Integrate your Payload
Whether you’ve launched dozens of experiments or zero, we’ll help you get integrated. Fly our ready-to-go cubesat-style capsules, available with data/power, pressurized environments, and live telemetry. Need something special? No problem, we’ll help you customize your capsule to your exact requirements.
3 minutes of microgravity. 4.5g acceleration. 50 minutes of total flight time. Sound good? Great! If not, we’ll work with you to set up a custom flight profile to suit your needs.
Get data fast. We’ll work with you to return your experiment as soon as possible, however you need it. Cryo, vacuum, freeze-dried, same-day shipped, high-speed download, you name it. Take it one step further and meet your payload with us as soon as it lands.
One-offs are great for a proof of concept, but good science needs a robust data set. That means iterative launches to run experiments multiple times. Our reusable vehicle and customer-focused integration services make iterative launches fast, simple, and affordable.
