Interstellar Technologies, Inc. (Japanese: インターステラテクノロジズ(株) Hepburn: Intāsutera Tekunorojizu (kabu)) is a Japanese NewSpace company. It is a rocket spacelaunch company developing the MOMO launcher. Its stated goal is to reduce the cost of access to space.[1] In 2017, it became the first Japanese company to launch a privately developed space rocket, though the launch was unsuccessful. The company plans to complete a rocket by 2020 that would be capable of launching small satellites into orbit.
