Instead of just looking up, he teamed up with three entrepreneurs who are also experts in the space industry, and then created a new company.
Based in Maryland, Quantum Space is focused on the Moon and things related to it.
Coincidentally, NASA is also interested in the Moon, so the startup has its sights on a tangible target and has presented a few ideas on how it can help others and also generate revenue for itself.
Quantum Space's CEO and President, Steve Jurczyk, stated that he and his colleagues have envisioned multiple types of vehicles that can be built in the coming years, as SpaceNews notes. The first of them is described as a robotic outpost, which would operate as a communications relay.
As its creators explain, the area between regular Earth orbits and the Moon could use a system like the Internet. Coincidentally, NASA has already thought about the matter, and their proposal was called LunaNET, and it was an internet-like system for the Moon. Jurczyk believes that the company he is running could get involved in the field.
Moreover, the robotic outpost might collect data from the Moon, as well as provide assistance when ships would require refueling or even store packages that might be moved from one party to another, like in a relay race, but in space.
While NASA might be its first big customer, Quantum Space might also be contacted by other firms involved in space tourism. Since the latter is still in its infancy, and only consists of brief orbits of the Earth at an incredibly high price, there is room for development in both directions.
