Space investor Dylan Taylor reserves a spot for Moon payload on Xplore’s first space mission

Voyager Space Holdings Chairman & CEO, Dylan Taylor

Seattle-based Xplore says space investor and philanthropist Dylan Taylor plans to reserve payload space on its first mission beyond Earth orbit, on behalf of a nonprofit group he founded.

  • Taylor founded Space for Humanity in 2017 to expand access to space and foster a sense of connectedness on Earth. Its marquee program aims to send citizen astronauts on all-expenses-paid journeys to the space frontier.
  • Xplore is working toward sending its Xcraft probes to the moon and other destinations beyond Earth orbit, starting as early as next year. “In the same way that we allow scientists to focus on the science,not the spacecraft, Xplore gives Space for Humanity the freedom to focus on the purpose of their payload and how they plan to support it via meaningful engagement and outreach programs that benefit their organization’s mission,” Xplore founder Lisa Rich said.
