Lonestar launches its first lunar data center test mission

Lonestar Data Holdings has successfully launched its pioneering lunar data center test mission, “Independence,” which embarked on its voyage to the Moon as a customer payload with Intuitive Machines aboard their NOVA C lander launching on a Space Falcon 9 launch vehicle from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

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.

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.”
