Nyx Space

United States of America

Nyx Space, spearheaded by Chris Rabotin, began as a passion project in 2018 and has evolved into a reliable, fast, open-source alternative to costly commercial astrodynamics tools. Developed outside of work hours, it represents a commitment to accessible, high-quality space exploration technology.

Our tools have played a crucial role in numerous pioneering spacecraft missions, including NASA's CAPSTONE, Masten XL-1, and other lunar landers. They also contribute to cutting-edge research, such as the work at the Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope, and innovative projects at Amazon Web Services.

By supporting Nyx Space, sponsors not only contribute to the continuation and growth of these vital tools but also enable a wide range of teams to access top-tier technology, substantially reducing their operational expenses. Your sponsorship is not just financial support; it's an investment in democratizing space exploration technology and fostering a community where innovation thrives.
