Orbital Labs

Orbital Labs is a student founded and run microgravity research organization dedicated to enabling aerospace and microgravity research. We need your support to complete the construction and enablement of our REAPR (Recovery for Avionics and Payload Retrieval vehicle) capsule for testing and deployment. 

Reduce the barrier to entry by allowing rapid development of scientific experiments that require greater precision and innovative processes. A Zero-Pressure High Altitude Balloon (HAB) will be used to lift our Experiment Capsule (ReAPR) to less dense parts of the atmosphere where the atmospheric density is <1% of that found at sea level.  Donations would enable further research and development of our REAPR capsule and SOLAR (Sub-Orbital Launch and Recovery System) system programs which would bring students and researchers closer deploying a functioning REAPR unit and enable proof of concept testing. 

Your gifts will provide for: 

  • Construction materials 
  • Federal and state government fees 
  • FAA certification 
  • Software and firm ware updates 
  • Marketing materials such as display boards 
  • Electronic circuitry 

Support Orbital Labs as we reach for the sky and beyond!
