Inversion Space is a pioneering startup founded in 2021, and its latest mission includes orbital warehouses.

The company is on a mission to transform how we think about military logistics.

Can you imagine a world where warehouses float in space, ready to deliver essential supplies to any corner of the globe within an hour?

That’s the vision of Inversion Space, and they’re making it a reality.

So how will this whole thing actually work?

Special capsules are to be sent up into space and left there, just hanging out until they are needed.

You can think of these capsules as orbital warehouses, filled with all sorts of necessary supplies.

When the armies need something down on Earth, like medical supplies or any other military stuff, these capsules will come swooping down super fast, delivering whatever they need with incredible accuracy.

The targeted delivery time for supplying the goods is one hour at most.

Inversion Space has given keen emphasis to independence.

These orbital warehouses won’t just be stationed at a single spot.

Rather, they will move around, depending on the orders they get.

But it’s not just the military that stands to benefit from this technology.

Private aviation and cruise lines are also potential customers here.

How, you ask?

Well, who doesn’t want the advantage of faster, more reliable cargo delivery?

The upcoming ‘Ray’ mission will be a crucial step forward for Inversion Space.

This mission will test the technology needed to support larger cargo vehicles, bringing their vision one step closer to reality.

This futuristic idea and company are led by CEO Justin Fiaschetti, a former engineer at SpaceX.

Together with co-founder and CTO Austin Briggs, they’re bringing decades of experience to the table, ensuring that Inversion Space is at the forefront of space logistics.

If their vision becomes a reality, it will mark a groundbreaking advancement in the military.
