The company SpaceRyde located in Vaughan, Ontario is competing with SpaceX to send cargo to the moon at a fraction of the cost. Owned by a husband-wife duo, Saharnaz Safari and Sohrab Haghighat made a very simple pitch.
Imagine you get the chance to vacation to space and all of a sudden, you start having an allergic reaction hundreds of kilometres from the Earth. Safari explained “are you going to wait for two months for SpaceX’s next rocket to deliver you the Benadryl? … No, you need it now.”
Their goal is to have the first orbital rocket to launch from a balloon which means a lower cost and on-demand access to space. The company is sort of like a private Uber-like service for cargo “From Earth to the moon and anywhere in between,” they say.The envision is to get cargo to the edge of space by balloon, then releasing it lighting a rocket and using a miniature computer to control its course.
