ABOUT THE COMPANY
Interstellar Lab believes that becoming a multi-planet species is one of the most exciting futures we can dream of for humanity. Yet, what is the point of bringing life to another planet if we cannot protect life on Earth? At Interstellar Lab, we design and build structures where life thrives, on Earth and in space. We develop deployable environment-controlled modules and pods through space exploration design approaches. We create ideal conditions for plants to grow on Earth, in LEO, on the Moon, and on Mars - from sustainable farming and biodiversity conservation on Earth to astronaut life-support and food production in space.
Interstellar Lab is currently located in Paris and Los Angeles and is constantly on the lookout for people with a passion for aerospace, environmental science, sustainability, and cutting-edge technology. Meet the current team on Linkedin.
