Max Space and the revolution of space habitats

Max Space’s habitable module could change the fate of space exploration

The search for habitable spaces in space takes a bold turn with the startup’s announcement Max Spacewho declared innovative plans to carry large expandable habitats in Earth orbit using SpaceX rockets by the end of the decade.

A gigantic inflatable habitat

The ambitious projectdriven by Aaron Kemmerco-founder of Max Space, aims to solve the primary challenge of space: the lack Of accessible living spaces. Kemmer underlined the need for make the space more accessible and convenient, stating that otherwise human prospects in space will remain limited.

The vision of startupsborn just a year ago, promises to revolutionize the space habitat conceptwith facilities they can reach size equal to stadiums. These habitats, which vary from 20 to 1,000 cubic meterscould far surpass current projects.

Kemmer’s dream come true

One of the dreams of Kemmer it is the creation of a city ​​on the Moon by the end of his life, with the Max Space habitat integrated into underground lava tubes of the satellite. These ambitions also extend to Marswhere the startup hopes to deploy its habitats on the planet’s surface.

There key to carry out this ambitious project is the use of technologiesinflatables“, which allow you to reduce considerably the dimensions of the payload needed for space launch. This innovative approach could reduce by a lot i costs of the space transportpaving the way for a new era of space exploration.

Although theidea of ​​inflatable habitats is not new, with currently three housing modules of this type in orbit developed by Bigelow AerospaceMax Space aims to further reduce costs through scalable innovations and a fresh, bold approach. Maxim de Jongco-founder of Max Space, already has experience with pressurized enclosures of two of these habitatacquired working for the Canadian contractor Thin Red Line Aerospace.

The first test within two years

There startups plans to launch its own first test outside the Earth within two yearswith a module the size of two suitcases which will expand once in orbit until it reaches i 700 cubic feet. If everything goes according to plan, this prototype could be exceed the volume of all the inflatable habitats currently in orbit, paving the way for a new era of space exploration.
