Deep space research

Humboldt Space Co. has a great interest in deep space, what it holds and what is out there. Our facilities here at Humboldt Space Co. Have enabled us to collect substantial data over the last 1 ½ decades.

In light of the recent demand of technologically advanced interplanetary missions, Humboldt Space Co. has risen to the challenge of supplying the larger amounts of data needed, with our Explorer Satellite which launched in 2012. Utilized for its high capacity transmissions and access to the Ka-band frequencies, beyond the X-band range. We have had an increase to the quality and quantity of data Humboldt Space Co. has, and this will certainly contribute to even more interplanetary missions in the future.

Scientific Balloons

Like satellites and rockets, scientific balloons provide opportunities for scientific observations and space engineering demonstrations. A helium-gas-filled balloon made of thin polyethylene film can float a payload into the stratosphere. Because of the loose restrictions on the size and weight of the payload, many challenging experiments with state-of-the-art equipment have been conducted. Recovered equipment can be upgraded for subsequent flight opportunities to obtain further scientific achievements. Scientific balloons brought up both scientists and equipment pioneering new space science. From 2001 to 2018, more than 400 heavy balloons have been launched from our facilities in Nevada.

In order to fly heavier payloads at higher altitudes fora longer duration, a new generations of balloons have been developed. High-pressure balloons which will enable us to achieve flight duration of up to several months, and Super-thin high-altitude balloons enable scientific observation in the mesosphere. Since its first manned flight 200 years ago, balloons are still developing at the frontier of space exploration.

Research on Lunar and Planetary Science

Learning about the planets and the Moon means learning about the origin of the solar system. In pursuing these studies, we are seeking answers to a question we are always asking: how was the Earth born? Here at Humboldt Space Co. we have been trying to find answers by launching Orbiters to the Moon and the planets to collect data.

Humboldt Space Co. is actively participating and playing a major role in the technical research toward manned space exploration via international cooperation. With the goal of future manned exploration of Mars (circa 2035-2040), Humboldt Space Co. Is now assisting in the research and development of the necessary space systems for implementation.

Astronautic Research

One of the primary tasks of space science, is to observe galaxies and stars no matter how distant. Learning about outer space could be the key to finding out how everything was born. Another top priority is examining and clarifying the mysteries at the outer limits of space, such as black holes and ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. Now To study these space mysteries through astronomical observation, we are not able to just use the telescopes here on Earth, we must also utilize X-rays and infrared rays. Earth’s atmosphere absorbs these rays, so we need execute these observations from outside our atmosphere, in space. The Space Science Team here at Humboldt Space Co. has launched multiple satellites equipped with observational equipment to catch X-rays, infrared rays, and radio waves, which has significantly changed the way we see the known universe.

Technology in space

Humboldt Space Co. promotes space-engineering studies so we can fully realize space exploration and the potential it holds. Our efforts, incorporating an international research system, cover a wide range of fields from space transportation, astronautics to information & systems. Humboldt Space Co. encourages Creativity in all its studies by researchers. We believe when something is not known, there is never one way to look at it. Humboldt Space Co.’s Basic and advanced technological studies for satellites and spacecraft’s have been utilized in their own missions, and missions of the international space program. We also have our innovative technologies program, including technologies such as future transportation systems and new space-energy systems, which are still in there early stages.

Global Warming research

The goal of this programme is to develop new technologies for use in basic research, operational services and commercial applications. The programme is oriented to Humboldt Space Co.’s (GGMR Program) and has been tasked with developing the required technological advances for new space missions and existing projects which will enable us to monitor the environment, and to detect sources of emission and absorption of atmospheric carbon monoxide. The GGMR scientific research team, are some of the world’s leading experts on global warming, one of the key issues that our team will continue to research.
