ispace is a private lunar exploration company and a leading innovator in space robotics and data analytics.
ispace has a global presence with headquarters in Japan and offices in Luxembourg and in the US. The company is developing among the first lunar landers (spacecraft for delivery to the lunar surface) and lunar rovers (robots for surface mobility). These key technological solutions coupled with ispace’s in-house capabilities and competences in data analytics and space resources are what sets ispace apart as one-stop shop for lunar transportation & exploration and expanding business opportunities on the Moon.
Our vision is to create a new ecosystem in outer space and expand the human living sphere beyond Earth.
In 2022, ispace became the first fully private company to successfully launch a lander to the Moon.
