This is Warp Space

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.

Make the future come sooner

Warp Institute is building a global community to make the future come sooner. The biggest project is a space community – this! – to find and fund space missions together.

Warp Institute is a foundation registered in Stockholm, Sweden.

Humanity's own space program

If we can help launch the first Beyond Atlas mission, then we can also do it for the second mission. And then we can do it a third time, with Beyond Atlas or someone else. And a fourth time, and a fifth, a sixth… and so on.

If we together in this community fund several space missions, then we have our own space program.

To achieve that will be very hard and require much work – but it can be done.

Make the Future Come Sooner

Warp Institute is a foundation registered in Stockholm, Sweden. Co-founded and chaired by Mathias Sundin, a former Member of Parliament.

Warp works in several fields to accelerate new technology and push the human race forward, but space together with the Beyond Atlas team is our biggest project.

Beyond Atlas

The story of Beyond Atlas started with Per-Erik Atterwall being on holiday, reading the biography of Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance.

“As I hate to admit it I was extremely impressed and inspired,” writes Per-Erik.

Atterwall is a successful Swedish businessman that has always been inspired by space.

He started choking the islands internet access point, and soon found he wasn’t the first interested in doing a space project. But few of them actually was flying in space. The visions were too grand to get off the ground.

Beyond Atlas: The Research

“With that in mind, I felt a clear focus and purpose. Let’s fly in space, let’s explore it, just for the purpose of exploration itself,” writes Per-Erik.

Nine months earlier an, so far, unique asteroid had been found. All other near-Earth asteroids came close to Earth every 20-30 years or so, but this was close all the time.

Relatively close. Between 60 and 80 times farther away than the Moon.

2016OH3 is its name.

He had found his target.
