Space Transport and Recovery Systems, LLC, or STAR Systems, is a startup aerospace venture dedicated to providing affordable access to space. We're comprised of a multidisciplinary team of engineers, scientists, students and other professional talents. Together, we're developing the Hermes, a suborbital spacecraft. We want you to have the experience of a lifetime, without using up your life savings. It's time to make your dream of going into space a reality.
The Hermes is designed to take passengers and payloads to the very cusp of outer space, over 60 miles high! The craft will be launched using a Space Shuttle-like flight profile. The Hermes will get to space using Star Systems' proprietary modular propulsion system. At the peak of the flight, or apogee, passengers will experience several minutes of weightlessness and a breathtaking view of the Earth and stars.
The Hermes is still being designed, but several subsystems have already been developed for testing. We call this version the Hermes Prototype. Our prototype has helped us validate our proof of concept, but now its time to create the space-rated version. As you can imagine, building a spaceship is an expensive endeavor. We're raising funding through personal donations, corporate sponsorship, and investors. Ultimately, we need seed funding from investors looking to reach the stars.
