Solstar Flying Higher on WeFunder Investments

Solstar Space Co. is riding the WeFunder regulation crowdfunding platform to blast its space communications technology into low earth orbit.

The New Mexico company, which flew its Schmitt Space Communicator into suborbit on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket in April, is now seeking to raise $1 million through WeFunder to continue developing its technology for commercial deployment on deeper missions in space. The funding will boost further testing and development of the Schmitt communicator, help the company build an app for people on the ground to interact with space missions and payloads through Solstar’s future internet and phone service, and push forward on construction of a more robust communications router to manage internet connections with satellites and other space vehicles in low earth orbit.
