Mission Helios is the first decentralized space community launched on the Ethereum network.
The company’s mission is to use blockchain technology as a catalyst for democratizing space exploration.
As a first step, Mission Helios will launch a high-performance camera attached to the LizzieSat to capture images of Earth. These images will be then turned into Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), which can be bought, sold, and sold by anyone.
Mission Helios’ metaverse-based Helios Hub will provide all with access to the nanosatellite’s collected data and imagery, while owners of the associated NFTs can earn passive income in the form of licensing royalties.

“Space exploration, and all the benefits that come from it, should not be concentrated in the hands of a few uber-wealthy robber barons,” claimed Alfonso Ballon, founder of Mission Helios. “We created Mission Helios precisely to help ensure that anyone in the world can access data and participate in future space exploration projects.”
Mission Helios’ first collection of satellite imagery is entitled “Terra,” and it will include articles, geographical, environmental, and historical data about the locations captured by the satellite.
As of right now, Mission Helios offers two NFT collections for fractional ownership of Terra NFTs: Pixel Rockets has 500 pieces of hand-drawn rockets, while Capsules has 50 pieces of 3D animated Helios capsules. Pixel Rockets and Capsules are available to be purchased on OpenSea.
Mission Helios’ long-term plans include not only the development and deployment of the world’s first community-owned camera in space but also the use of NFT proceeds for funding future space exploration and educational initiatives.
