About


Spacefleet Ltd. is fully committed to the principles of sustainable development. We will endeavour at all times and in all our activities to minimise the wastage of non-renewable resources. Furthermore, we intend, ultimately, that operational Spacefleet craft will contribute to the Earth's atmosphere no carbon dioxide emission whatsoever. In this way, customers of a future Spacefleet tourism or space transport service will be assured that the operation of the service will cause no environmental harm.



Company CEO - Dr. Raymond D. Wright

Raymond D. Wright, D.Phil. is Founder of The Spacefleet Project. This company is working on The Spacefleet EARL Project which will be a low-cost demonstration of the principle that a payload can be lifted into space using aerodynamic boosters in the form of three near-identical autonomous lifting bodies.

Ray’s career experience has been of 31 years in the electricity supply industry in the UK, where he worked on environmental science for 26 years of that time, with other experience in the conversion of solar energy to electricity, nuclear electricity generation technology and knowledge management. His main experience is in the numerical simulation of atmospheric chemistry, and also of meteorology. He also has a keen interest in the numerical simulation of climate change. In parallel with this, he has maintained a long-term interest in astronomy and space flight, from a very early age.

He founded a company, Spacefleet Ltd, in 2004 with the intention of developing a novel low-cost launch system for humans and cargo to LEO

Congratulations on getting to the stage of testing hardware in flight, as they say space is hard, hope next time the parachute works.
