Prograde Laboratories is the result of a crazy idea.  We believe that it should be possible to build your own suborbital or orbital launch vehicle to send standalone payloads of any size to space at a price that is practical and accessible to anyone.

Prograde Laboratories aims to provide easily accessible aerospace technologies to industry, education, and individual hobbyists in the form of simplified modular solutions and services.

Our long term goal is to build a suborbital launch vehicle capable of breaking past the Kármán line, 100 km altitude.  Once our suborbital capabilities are proven, we intend to shoot for orbit, and further.
