Through the Platform, Blackship.One may offer services to people looking to launch shared or dedicated objects into space. Getting to space is risky, time consuming and expensive and there are no guarantees that our final product will reach its intended destination (LEO). There are many things that can go wrong along the way including but not limited to: lack of funding, launch vehicle failure or component failure (either full of partial)
NASA has released information on small sat mission failure rates and the study found that “between the years of 2000 to 2016, 41.3% of all small satellites launched failed or partially failed. Of these small satellite missions, 24.2% were total mission failures, another 11% were partial mission failures, and 6.1% were launch vehicle failures.”
As you can see, the data is not on the side of creators. It’s important to be aware of these risks and know that we all face these risks together.
In the case of a partial or full mission failure, we offer no refunds. This is the risk we all take when trying to get to space. However, we have designed our mission in a way that allows us to increase the chances of success by not rushing our development process. Your can read more about our approach to spacecraft survivability in our FAQ section here.
