Astra Spacelines is a company that looks to develop and offer frequent, affordable, and safe flights to space for both passengers and freight. The company was founded by Troy Booher in 2016, in Sugar Grove, Illinois, United States.
Astra Spacelines is a company that looks to provide services for travel, tourism, transportation, space travel and flight, and aviation and aerospace. The company has two phases of operation. The first phase includes sub-orbital flights are what the company looks to provide for passengers while launching small satellites into space (the cubesat). This phase is primarily focused on passenger transportation fulfilling space tourism demand. Phase two includes achieving Low Earth Orbit transportation. The company believes that using certain propellants that are safer for the environment is sustainable for the company and each of its launches.
The spaceline will offer one-way, round-trip, and multi-point flight options, and will departure and arrive from strategic locations on Earth, as well various commercial space stations in orbit in space. The company will begin its operations with its first generation of spaceliners from regional airports in the United States. Eventually the company looks to accommodate both passenger and payloads.
