A Star For Humanity
Visible with the naked eye, the Humanity Star was a highly reflective satellite that blinked brightly across the night sky to create a shared experience for everyone on the planet.
Created by Rocket Lab founder and CEO Peter Beck, the Humanity Star was a geodesic sphere made from carbon fibre with 76 highly reflective panels. It spun rapidly, reflecting the sun’s rays back to Earth, creating a flashing light that could be seen against a backdrop of stars.
Orbiting the Earth every 90 minutes and visible from anywhere on the globe, the Humanity Star was designed to be a bright symbol and reminder to all on Earth about our fragile place in the universe.
Humanity Star Update

"In March 2018, The Humanity Star began its final descent into the Earth’s atmosphere where it burnt up on reentry, leaving no trace

Launched on 21 January 2018 NZT, The Humanity Star was designed to be a temporary symbol in the night sky that encouraged everyone to look up, ponder humanity’s place in the universe and think about how we can work together as one species to solve the challenges facing us all.

During its time in space, the Humanity Star orbited the Earth every 90 minutes and could be seen from around the world as a brief, glinting light in the dawn, dusk and night sky.

The Humanity Star was designed to appear slightly brighter than the stars alongside it and reflect the sun’s rays just long enough to draw people’s eyes skyward and leave them looking at the night sky long after the satellite has passed.

My hope was to encourage people to linger looking at the stars and ponder our place in the universe. While many people are already keen observers of the cosmos, thousands more have now spent time searching, watching and pondering what it means to be one species on a tiny globe in the middle of a vast universe. Thank you to the thousands of people who shared their stories of experiencing it with friends and loved ones, and also to those who sent photos and videos of Humanity Star passes.

While the Humanity Star was a brief moment in human history, I hope the conversations and ideas it sparked around the world will continue to be explored. These are the conversations that will play a part in shaping how we collectively manage our planet and work together to solve the challenges facing us all."
Peter Beck.
