Luxembourg welcomes a new space startup

Luxembourg welcomes a new space startup

The young Czech company Lightigo Space has developed a laser that can analyze the soil of the Moon and Mars. It can be mounted on a research drone to gather information about valuable rocks and their potential uses.

The European Space Resources Innovation Center (ESRIC), based in Luxembourg, is interested in developing this program. This interest is understandable, as the Grand Duchy is serious about space startups.

Lightigo Space plans to complete the technology and send it into space by 2030. In order to do so, however, it will be in need of additional funding, which is available in Luxembourg. One of the conditions for receiving a grant is to open a subsidiary in the Grand Duchy.
