Pioneering resource exploration and management by developing capabilities that enable the acquisition and  access to rare and valuable resources.
Capturing The Future Frontier


With remarkable developments in reusable rocket technology, access to space has become more attainable than ever. Utilizing these new super-heavy lift rockets, ExLabs is developing the next generation of space vehicles for  exploration, designed to capture asteroid resources. Our vehicles will go into deep space and carry out missions in some of the first-ever private enterprise accomplishments in space exploration.

Concept 1

TOGETHER: In addition to the engineering and production of a new class of space exploration vehicle, ExLabs is aiming to disrupt the traditional aerospace industry by inviting the community to imagine, create and celebrate the journey alongside the team—things worth doing are better done together. ExLabs believes decentralized technology can help connect people that are passionate about the future of humans in space with those that can take the next steps to get us there. 

Join our community today!



The pedigreed ExLabs team has been assembled from some of the best talent in the modern space and technology industries. The future of human exploration looks bright, and with a team that represents over 100 years of combined space innovation and entrepreneurial success, ExLabs plans to connect humanity to opportunities that have never before been explored.
