Space Nation - space for everyone
This belief was born from the shared vision of two childhood friends, Mazdak Nassir and Kalle Vähä-Jaakkola, and their personal experiences. Mazdak, a refugee who grew up to become an award-winning filmmaker, saw the promise that space travel held as a dream that anyone on Earth, no matter their background, could one day aspire to.
Kalle grew up on a tiny farm, gazing at the stars night after night and wondering what lies beyond this world.
This is where our journey began. Since our founding in 2013 we’ve started to achieve maximum velocity. We’ve signed a collaboration agreement with NASA, broken crowdfunding records, and become the first ever space industry member to join the United Nations World Tourism Organization as an Affiliate Member.
What a ride it's been so far - and it’s only just beginning. Why not reach for the stars and join us?
