STARLAB

Using Space to Improve Life on Earth

Nanoracks has launched an ambitious international program to use the unique and harsh environment of space to develop commercially viable organisms and products in the fields of AgTech, climate science, sustainability, and robotic innovation.

StarLab will provide the technology and access necessary to overcome the direst challenges facing our Planet Earth today, from climate change to water scarcity, and to one day in turn, help sustain tomorrow’s famers, innovators, and space explorers.

StarLab Program Highlights

What is StarLab?

StarLab Space Farming Centers will provide the technology necessary to overcome the direst challenges facing our Planet Earth today, from climate change to water scarcity, and to one day in turn, help sustain tomorrow’s famers, innovators, and space explorers.

How Does This Join In Nanoracks Vision?

We believe passionately that our growing utilization of the space environment can reap results that will change the lives for billions of people suffering from an increasingly fragile food security chain. We’re building Outposts in space, and we’re going to use them for revolutionary research.

How Does Space Help Accelerate New Earthly AgTech Products?

30 years of research has produced tantalizing evidence that the environment of space can produce AgTech products that are hardier than those on Earth. The mix of radiation present in space and the microgravity environment combine to yield unique biomass products.

What Is The Research Focus?

Our StarLab researchers will focus on advancing knowledge and technology about food produced in space and on the equally challenging and hostile climates on Earth to help overcome the effects of climate change, water scarcity, and more.

Where Will StarLab Start?

The Abu Dhabi Investment Office has committed to a multi-year economic development effort to allow Nanoracks to build a world-class, historic commercial space research center in Abu Dhabi – the first of many around the world.

LEVERAGING OUR ACCESS TO SPACE
