We bring nature to space & give space to nature.
Interstellar Lab develops sustainable cultivation solutions on Earth and paves the way towards regenerative life-support in space.
We believe that becoming a multi-planet species is one of the most exciting futures we can dream of for humanity.
This future is only possible if we figure out how to live in a sustainable, closed-loop and regenerative way. Starting right now, on Earth.
Our durable and deployable modules combine inflatable technology, 3D-printed high-performance materials, advanced food production & water and waste systems to support human life in any environment.
Each module can grow 3OO+ species in a controlled-environment, monitored by our proprietary AI. All modules work stand-alone or plugged together, forming a station.

Created after studying life support systems and space gardens, Interstellar Lab reconnects with the childhood dream of space exploration and tries to answer humanity's central question: “how would we survive out there?“
As always, nature is the answer. If we can inspire from its perfection and recreate the ideal conditions for plants to thrive anywhere, it might just be the key to our survival on any planet. Nature feeds us, host us & heals us, yet we've barely scratched the surface of how it does these things. Unlocking the secrets and potential of plants is our mission to move humankind towards a better future.
Today, nature needs protection in the form of more sustainable ways to produce natural ingredients. Borrowing from the latest of space technologies, we’re building BioPods to give plants a new space to thrive and in turn, make us thrive.
We have a planet to save and space to discover. Join our mission!
