Our Goals

MirCorp's vision of the future is to open space enterprise to private industry. By commercializing operations of the Mir space station, MirCorp will be able to utilize this valuable resource.

Through its contractual relationship with Mir operator RSC Energia, MirCorp has leased the resources of the space station to provide direct access for a wide range of international users.

MirCorp's goals are to preserve the heritage of Mir, the first international space station, through the commercialization of space enterprise. The Mir space station is now commercially available for international users who seek access to one of mankind's most unique industrial, scientific, and recreational facilities.

MirCorp is using private funding to initiate commercial operations on Mir. The company is seeking additional funds to support the station's activities over the longer term.

Mir's orbit offers a unique environment that is free of the constraints of gravity and with unmatched views of the Earth and heavens. As a result, the commercial demand for Mir is expected to be large and varied: from the production of highly pure medicines and alloys to real-time imaging of the Earth and planets.

With the market free to determine the use of an operational space station, the opportunities are almost unlimited. Space tourism could even become an on-going reality for the first time!
