About Stoke

Seamlessly connecting earth and space

STOKE was formed to develop low-cost, on-demand access to and from space. That means access to any orbit at any time, for orders of magnitude lower cost.

Our Development Philosophy

STOKE’s development philosophy is founded on high-velocity hardware-focused iterative development—design fast, build fast, test fast, learn fast, iterate fast. This approach is the foundation of STOKE’s culture, and it permeates every aspect of our operations. The result is a speed of development and a level of capital efficiency that is unique in the space industry.

Having played an integral role in bringing New Space’s first generation of reusable rockets to market at SpaceX, Blue Origin, and others, we are now focused on building Reusability 2.0.
