About

Our Wish Kits will let you and your loved ones send pictures, wishes, messages, greetings, tributes, celebrations and memorials on a trackable journey through space. 

Perfect for birthdays wishes, weddings celebrations, inspiration for someone to follow their dreams or memorializing the loss of a loved one. 

Launch A Wish Flight Module Design
Launch A Wish Flight Module Design

Our launch service providers have been approved by the U.S. government and the FAA to launch our wish capsules aboard scheduled space missions.  For each mission, the data capsule will be inserted into a specially engineered spaceflight module, integrated into the spacecraft and launched into outer space with the primary mission for a lasting inspiration. 

The Launch A Wish Earth Orbital Capsule will be attached to a commercial satellite, placed inside a Falcon 9 Rocket and launched into outer space from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.  Track the capsule on our mission tracking app as it orbits around the earth.

Our Earth Orbital Capsule will be launched into orbit from Vandenberg, AFB on a Falcon 9 Rocket.

The Launch A Wish Deep Space Capsule will be attached to a research spacecraft and launched into deep space from historic Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Track the capsule on our tracking app as it travels through space on an endless journey.

We are in the final stages of developing the user interface, dashboard and mission tracking system.  We are asking for your Kickstarter support to help fund our team of developers, so we can bring Launch A Wish to market by the end of November 2018.

Check out our special Kickstarter offers and discounts.  We hope that you will join us on our historic mission to space. 

Dashboard and tracking system
Dashboard and tracking system

Many ancient cultures believed the smoke from birthday candles carried their wishes, hopes and dreams into the heavens.  Now, with the help of powerful rocket engines, Launch A Wish will physically send your pictures, messages, hopes and dreams into orbit around the Earth, to the surface of the Moon or on an endless journey into Deep Space.

The moon has been a symbol of love for centuries.  You can send your wedding pictures to the moon for a lasting celebration.  You can also propose to your loved one with a Launch A Wish kit.  But we can't promise they'll say yes! 

A unique way to memorialize a loved one.  Send their picture and a personal message into the heavens for an eternal tribute that will always be remembered.  Track the capsule as it journeys through outer space.

Launch A Wish kits will make the perfect gift for any occasion.  Great for birthdays, anniversary's, graduations, well wishes, special greetings or simply for love.  The perfect way to say, "I love you". 

Inspire someone you know to follow their dreams, work hard and believe in themselves.  As the capsule travels through space with their hopes, dreams, wishes and goals aboard, they can track the journey while they work towards achieving their hopes and dreams.

Risks and challenges

Our data capsules will be aboard commercial space missions as secondary payload and are subject to delays due to weather, satellite construction and rocket malfunctions. In the event the initial mission is not successful due to weather delays, satellite construction or rocket failure a re-flight will be provided, at no additional cost, on the next scheduled launch of the same mission type.

Our Launch A Wish capsules are scheduled to launch in late 2019 from the Vandenberg AFB in California, the Rocket Lab Complex 1 in Mahia, New Zealand and the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The integration deadline for our capsules to be secured into the spacecraft will be sometime in Q1 of 2019. Once the integration deadline is set by our Launch Service Providers, the deadline date will be posted on our website and user dashboard page.
