All Aboard Conestoga!

On October 23, 2014, we joined UP Aerospace for the sixth launch collaboration in seven years-- the Conestoga Flight-- and launched to space the Name A Star Live star catalog, star names and dedications. The SpaceLoft XL rocket, a reusable launch vehicle essential for low-cost access to space, was launched from New Mexico's Spaceport America.

The Conestoga Flight is named in honor of Name A Star Live parent company Space Service's groundbreaking 1982 Conestoga 1, the world's first ever private rocket launch. Over 30 years later, Space Services is still the world leader in public participation spaceflights — and you make it possible!
