Space Sling Technologies

Startup

Space Sling’s mission is to redefine the way we live in space.

Our goal is to remove the barriers to space tourism, commercial space operations and space exploration and to create artificial gravity combining proven technologies in an innovative way.

   

Mission, Vision, Overall description of product / company

Space Sling Technologies was founded in 2017 under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not. Today Space Sling is actively developing the technologies to make this possible.


Our Mission

To live in space permanently people need gravity - living without it for long periods of time leads to serious health problems. Our mission is to build the first space station with artificial gravity. 


New Concept

Gravity can be easily created through circular rotation, but this approach is costly and requires a substantial amount of fuel. Instead of rotating a giant object, we will build a single static round rail.  Space Sling can be built with existing, well-known technologies, and will use  solar energy to run the module, so no additional fuel will be needed.   


Our Project

Our cutting-edge project is carried out by a group of talented engineers who want to transform space exploration.

  • As a first milestone we started work on a lab prototype which will demonstrate the concept. To develop it we will need some more engineers, time and of course financing.
  • The second milestone is to launch in space via cubesat, a small prototype of the system as a proof of concept.
  • The third milestone is to develop a near full scale system which to be attached to the International Space Station for testing.
