About Moon Express, Inc. Stock

Moon Express is a privately financed commercial space company blazing a trail to the Moon. Our prime directive is to open up the Moon’s vast resources for humanity and establish new avenues for commercial space activities beyond Earth orbit. We begin with profitable on-ramps by disrupting space transportation with innovative, flexible and scalable new spacecraft that will radically reduce the cost of commercial robotic space activities. In doing so we will extend the economic sphere of Earth and make the resources of the Moon and asteroids accessible. We have a team of driven, visionary people merging the best practices of traditional aerospace know how with the innovation and entrepreneurial culture of Silicon Valley. We have partnerships with NASA as both collaborator and customer. We have signed a contract with NASA for lunar cargo delivery, and NASA has selected Moon Express as a partner in developing lunar landers to put the U.S. back on the surface of the Moon. The company was founded by Dr. Bob Richards, Naveen Jain, and Dr. Barney Pell in August 2010 and was quickly selected by NASA for its $30M Innovative Lunar Demonstrations Data (ILDD) program. Moon Express entered and became the recognized leader in the $30M Google Lunar XPRIZE competition in October of that same year, and in 2014 was selected by NASA for its Lunar CATALYST program focused on a U.S. return to the Moon. Moon Express is headquartered at the NASA Ames Research Park in Mountain View, CA, with facilities and operations in Huntsville, AL and at the Kenneday Space Center and Cape Canaveral, FL.
