A Global Space Community

Doing The First Private Asteroid Mission

We are building a global space community to find and fund space missions together.

Our first project is to help Beyond Atlas send the world’s first private mission to an asteroid.

The world’s first private asteroid mission. Let’s make history.

Earth has a second moon, a mini-moon. It’s an asteroid and we will go there and check it out.

Beyond Atlas

Founded with the goal of exploring space with a spacecraft so cheap and reliable that we can afford to do it, not only the strongest space organizations on Earth.

Crowdfunding

Beyond Atlas have raised enough capital to fund the first mission, Meeting the Scrap, with planned launch in June 2020.

But you can still donate, and be part of both missions.

  • The total cost of both missions: $3 million.

The mission: Earth’s mini Moon.

Earth has a second Moon, a mini-Moon. It’s really an asteroid, called 2016HO3, in orbit around the Sun, but also around Earth. Beyond Atlas will build a spacecraft to explore it. And we hope to give it a better name.

Mission 1 - Meeting the Scrap

A test mission, but very cool in itself. It will fly in low Earth orbit and navigate very close and photograph space debris. Also a first.

Launch early 2020.

Mission 2 - Meeting the Asteroid

This spacecraft will first go into Earth orbit and using an ion thruster accelerate to eventually reach escape velocity. After about a year the spacecraft will reach the asteroid.

It will of course photograph the asteroid, and also scan the surface to get knowledge of what the asteroid is made of.

Endorsements

Warp Institute

Warp is a Swedish foundation with the goal to make the future come sooner and is building a global community to make that happen. Co-founder and executive chairman is Mathias Sundin, a former Member of Parliament.

Community

We are building a global space community to decide and fund space missions together. A space program by and for the people. Our first joint task will be to crowdfund the first two missions of Beyond Atlas.

To do this we need you. You’ll get a unique insight into the missions, you will be part of space history and you’ll help humanity become multiplanetary.

Together we can make space history.
