About LifeShip

What We Believe

At LifeShip, we believe that humanity has an important part to play in continuing the cycle of life in the Universe and expanding life outwards from our planet.

We believe in preserving the genetic blueprint of Earth’s incredible biodiversity as it is today for future generations.

We believe in furthering the human story into the cosmos so that we leave a legacy and are never forgotten.

We believe that we can achieve this by taking small steps towards seeding life beyond Earth and extending humanity to the stars.

We believe in making space accessible to everyone. After all, exploration is in our DNA!

What We Offer

We want to send you to space! You are invited to add your DNA and personal story to the LifeShip capsule. Your DNA gets preserved in synthetic amber and launched on a rocket to the Moon. You get written into the forever record of humanity. Your legacy lives on beyond Earth.

This record comprises the DNA of fellow humans, as well as diverse plant and animal species, plus an archive of human knowledge. You can choose to travel with friends and family; celebrate your bond with a special pet; or honor a lost loved one. Whichever mission you choose, you’ll be in good company!

The LifeShip capsule includes collections from our incredible partners and collaborators. A seed bank provides a backup of important plants. A DNA biobank of biodiversity includes over 500 plants and animal species. Art curations are included from LunARC, Oceana Rain Stuart, and Beyond Earth. Cultural archives are provided by Arch Mission Foundation. A message to a future intelligence is provided by Interstellar Foundation. MoonDAO is including their decentralized community in the mission. This is an artifact of the future to engage humanity now and a messenger probe to pass on the story of humanity and blueprint of Earth.

How We Do It

Your dream of going to space, your legacy, and your connection to the cosmos and your loved ones are our inspiration.

LifeShip is a mission-driven space and genomics company founded in San Francisco, California. We use a state-of-the-art lab to preserve your DNA in synthetic amber, and then protect it in a genetic time capsule saved in space for endless possibilities in the far future.

We are a remote-first team of spacecraft architects, product designers, and creatives committed to bringing us closer to space while doing good for our Earth. In addition, our innovative partners in the field of space exploration support this vision for the future of our planet and humanity.
