Interstellar Technologies Inc (IST) develops small robots at the world lowest price which differ from the large-scale rockets for previous national projects. Conventional large-scale rockets were aimed to be highly accurate, high-priced, large in size, therefore not many manufacturers were able to develop them. However, IST tries to avoid using specialized components for space projects as much as possible and uses processing machinery found at any ordinary factory which make possible the lower prices of their rockets.
