Designed based on user-centric needs and leveraging cutting-edge space tech.

Starlab is planned to be the first continuously crewed, free-flying commercial space station, leveraging innovative, yet known, technologies to provide a science and mission capability equivalent to that on the ISS today.

Operational before the ISS is decommissioned, the Starlab design enables launch on a single mission. No additional flights necessary – we’re getting right down to business.

The First Science Park in Space

red line element

The George Washington Carver (GWC) Science Park stands at the heart of Starlab, hosting research hardware for astronauts, scientists, students, and commercial companies to use in space. Its planned core scientific departments include:

  • Biology
  • Plant Habitation
  • Physical Science,
  • Materials Science
  • Open work bench area

The GWC Science Park is operational today in our first location – the International Space Station.

Our activities today on the International Space Station allow for a seamless transition to Starlab and other commercial space stations of the future. The GWC Science Park is designed to help users solve humanity’s most pressing challenges.
