Star Lab Makes Suborbital Affordable

Star Lab, the next-generation vehicle for suborbital experiments developed by the Florida-based 4Frontiers Corporation, is well on its way toward its first successful flight — and it’s looking for payloads.

I had a chance to interview Mark Homnick, CEO of 4Frontiers, at his office in New Port Richey, Florida. He gave me the run-down on Star Lab and how it will help make suborbital payloads affordable for research institutions, helping them get their experiments off the shelf — and off the ground.

“We’re real, we’re viable, and we have the best deal that I know of… we’ll have the lowest cost and the highest launch rate, anywhere.”

– Mark Homnick, CEO of 4Frontiers Corporation

It’s a fascinating venture and it’s going to become a reality very soon. Read the full story here.
