Lonestar Lunar

Lonestar marks the successful Launch of its first Lunar Data Center Test Mission, "Independence", Flying To The Moon With Intuitive Machines on its IM-1 Mission

This landmark mission represents a significant milestone in Lonestar's ambitious vision to use the Moon to secure Earth's data. "Independence" represents a new era in data storage and global disaster recovery services.

Throughout the flight to the Moon, Lonestar’s Independence payload will undergo a series of critical in-flight tests, designed to validate Lonestar's innovative data center concept for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). These tests are essential for ensuring the viability of lunar data centers as a reliable and secure solution for data backup and restoration on a global scale.

Working with Space Florida, Lonestar is storing digital data onboard for the State of Florida. The documents to be transmitted to and from the spacecraft in flight for this ground breaking test are to be the US Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The mission sets the precedent for future Lonestar data storage missions.

Looking ahead, Lonestar is committed to advancing its technological capabilities and expanding its service offerings to include global backup, global refresh, and global restore solutions. The ultimate goal is to provide an unparalleled level of data security and recovery services, ensuring the protection of vital information against terrestrial risks and disasters.

"Lonestar is on a mission to save Earth's data, one byte at a time. With the successful launch of 'Independence,' we are one step closer to realizing our vision of establishing a secure, off-planet data storage infrastructure that can serve humanity for generations to come," said Chris Stott, CEO and Founder of Lonestar Data Holdings Inc. "We are immensely proud of this achievement and excited about the possibilities it unlocks for the future of data preservation. Huge kudos to the teams at Intuitive Machines and SpaceX."

As "Independence" continues its journey to the Moon and beyond, Lonestar looks forward to sharing updates on the mission's progress and the outcomes of the in-flight tests. We are grateful for the support of our partners, stakeholders, and the global community as we embark on this unprecedented venture.
