The Exploration Company GmbH

Space IndustryMember since 2022


Our mission is to make space exploration affordable, available and open. To realize this mission, The Exploration Company develops, manufactures and operates Nyx, a modular and reusable orbital vehicle that can eventually be refuelled in orbit.

The technical bricks of Nyx are built with open interfaces: they are available on SpaceStore to enable space & non-space companies to use them and develop new applications.

Nyx provides a wide scope of missions ranging from 6 months around the Earth (and re-entry) to landing on the Moon (and coming back), or performing 100km hopping on the Moon. Nyx can resupply space stations and large space infrastructures. Nyx has the potential to carry humans.
