Generation Orbit is changing the future of space launch and hypersonic flight. At GO (we pronounce our name “go”), we believe that flying higher and faster are technical challenges worthy of the space generation. We are a passionate company of inventors, creators, and builders with near term goals and long-term dreams for space and atmospheric flight.

GO Boldly!



Generation Orbit is developing the GOLauncher family, a series of high speed flight and space launch systems designed to lower costs, improve responsiveness, and increase overall mission flexibility.
We are currently building the GOLauncher 1 (GO1), a high-speed flight testbed for research and development of hypersonic systems. Hypersonics is the next great frontier of atmospheric flight. Capable of reaching speeds up to Mach 7 with a test payload attached, our GO1 development is supported by key partnerships at NASA and the US Air Force. GOLauncher 1 will also be used to fly high altitude suborbital research missions.
Our GO Flight Experiments Testbed (GO FET) is available today. GO FET is an extremely affordable captive-carry flight testbed for advancing the technology readiness level (TRL) of small CubeSats, avionics, communications, and propellant handling technologies in a flight environment. GO FET is flight proven and available to support your next flight test project.
Going forward, our future GOLaunchers will contribute to more affordable and flexible launch options for small satellites.
