With limited federal funding, BoldlyGo Institute is joining a growing group of private sector investors in space science and exploration. New York City-based BoldlyGo Institute recently announced how it intends to build and launch its own scientifically-focused space missions.

Among the missions that BoldlyGo already plans to launch are a robotic there-and-back trip to Mars and a new space telescope mission for the “post-Hubble era.” The Mars trip is code-named SCIM and plans to bring back samples from the planet, while the telescope project is being called ASTRO-1.
