Orbit Fab envisions a thriving in-space market for products and services that support both existing space businesses (communications and Earth observation) and new industries like space tourism, manufacturing, and mining. We offer a ubiquitous supply of satellite propellant in Earth Orbit, expanding the operational potential of new and existing space assets and enabling unprecedented business model flexibility for satellite owners. The future for satellites is no longer restricted to the fuel they are launched with. We provide the fuel that satellites need, where and when they need it, to achieve things never before thought possible.

Co-Founders Daniel Faber, CEO, and Jeremy Schiel, CMO, are working to establish the first gas station in space for satellite refueling. With the first successful launch within a year of founding the company behind them, the two are one step closer to making their vision a reality.
