WITH ALMIGHTY GOD'S BLESSINGS - THE GLOBAL FOUNDER FRAMERS OF THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - Invented, created, extracted, etched, sculptured, supported, the greatest organization mankind will ever know.

ON !WOW! Everybody is equal, every element of The Ecosystem 2011, belongs to the students of the world. All finances, scholarships, film rights, book rights, donations, funds, awards, ad-revenues. And the Veto lies with The Global Founder Framers.

STUDENT AUSTIN BRIGGS - 23 - ONE OF INVERSION'S FOUNDERS and the company's chief technology officer, and Mr. Flaschetti met at a ceremony for freshmen at Boston University.

They became active in the school's Rocket Propulsion Group working on designs. They moved to Los Angeles during the pandemic. One night when they were discussing the future of the space industry, Mr. Fiaschetti said they homed in on creating less expensive re-entry vehicles to carry cargo from space.

They moved into a guesthouse in the San Pedro neighborhood of Los Angeles, paying $1,250 a month each, including for the use of a garage that became the company's workshop. Using Mr. Fiaschetti's woodworking equipment, they designed and made a working rocket engine out of aluminium in an effort to prove to potential investors that they had the necessary technical chops.

In June, Inversion Space joined Y Combinator, a Silicon Valley start-up incubator known for early investments in Airbnb and Stripe. Five months later, it said it had raised $10 million based in part on letters of intent worth $225 million from potential customers interested in reserving space on Inversion's capsules.

Globally, venture capital firms invested $7.7 billion in space-related technology last year, up nearly 50 percent from a year earlier according to data compiled by PitchBook. Inversion moved into a warehouse in an office park in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance. It is a tinkerer's dream.

Tucked away at the far end of the warehouse, is a black, 10-foot shipping container for testing rocket engines and parachute deployment mechanisms.

FOR DECADES - PEOPLE HAVE IMAGINED living and working in space as an extension of life on Earth. That vision seemed like a Hollywood fantasy until an influx of private rocket companies greatly reduced the costs of getting to space.

The cost of launching one kilogram, about 2.2 pounds, of payload to outer space has fallen roughly 90 percent in the last 30 years. SpaceX is expected to push costs even lower with Starship, its next-generation rocket still in development.

PACKAGES FROM THE HEAVENS : A start-up bets on storing goods in orbit for rapid deliveries on demand.

Shortly after sunrise on a recent Saturday, an engineer for Inversion Space, a start-up barely a year old, tossed a capsule resembling a flying saucer out the open door of an aircraft flying at 3,000 feet, or 900 meters.

The capsule, 20 inches, or 50 centimeters, in diameter, tumbled for a few seconds before a parachute deployed and snapped the container upright for a slow descent.

The exercise looked like the work of amateur rocketry enthusiasts. But it was a test run for something more fantastical. Inversion is building orbiting capsules to deliver goods anywhere in the world from space.

To make that a reality, Inversion's capsule will come through the earth's atmosphere at about 25 times the speed of sound, making the parachute essential for a soft landing and undisturbed cargo.

Inversion is betting that as it becomes less expensive to fly to space, government agencies and companies will want to not only send things to orbit but also bring items back to earth.

Inversion aims to develop a four-foot diameter capsule carrying a payload of equivalent to the size of a few carry-on suitcases by 2025.

Once in orbit, the capsule could, the company hopes, navigate itself to a private commercial space station or stay in orbit with solar panels until summoned back to earth. Come time to return, the capsule could drop out of orbit and re-enter the atmosphere.

The capsule would deploy a parachute to slow its descent and land within a radius of tens of miles from its target location. The company has planned a smaller demonstration capsule with a 20-inch diameter to be ready by 2023.

If Inversion is successful, it's possible to imagine hundreds and thousands of containers floating around space for up to five years - like some [really] distant storage lockers.

The company's founders imagine the capsules could store artificial organs that are delivered to an operating room within a few hours or serve as mobile field hospitals floating in orbit that would be dispatched to remote areas of the planet.

''The big obstacle that everyone in the sector is trying to overcome is that at current costs, there just isn't that much demand to do much in space,'' said Matthew C. Weinzieri, a professor at Harvard Business School who has published research about the economic potential of space.

Inversion's founders think what seems like a pipe dream may become more realistic as launch costs drop from current prices, which start at $1 million [and increase depending on weight] to share space on a SpaceX rocket.
