Mission & Vision

Building a future full of life, on Earth and beyond

Our Mission
Our mission is to preserve life on Earth and help it expand in Space.

“There is nothing lovelier on this planet than a flower, nor more essential than a plant. The true matrix of human life is the greensward covering mother Earth.”

Interstellar Lab embarked on a quest to learn and preserve biodiversity on Earth and help it become multi-planetary.

By using AI and advanced machinery we create automated biospheres inspired by our planet to preserve, expand and bring to the stars our knowledge of the plant kingdom.

We use technology to build a future full of life, where nature and humans thrive. On Earth and beyond.


Interstellar Lab is a biotech American-French startup whose mission is to build a future full of life, on Earth and beyond. We believe in a future where technology is enabling humans to live in harmony with nature, a future where biodiversity thrives and expands, a future where terrestrial life become multi-planetary. To build this future, we design, manufacture and operate controlled-environment biofarms that unleash the power of plants. On Earth and in Space. Our solutions combine Hardware, AI and Bioscience. We use controlled-environment technology to mimic a multitude of conditions to allow plants, fungi and microorganisms to grow faster and better. Founded late 2018 in Los Angeles, Interstellar Lab now encompasses a team of over 60 engineers, scientists, and designers currently located south of Paris (France) and in Cape Canaveral (USA), looking to expand in Los Angeles Area and Texas in 2024.
