Meet Our CEO – Ben Haldeman
LifeShip was founded by Ben Haldeman who spent his career looking for new life in space and using satellites to improve life on Earth. 

Looking for life on Mars. Ben’s grad school thesis in Mechanical Engineering at Berkeley was building instruments to go on Mars rover missions to look for life on the red planet.

Looking for new planets. Ben spent 8 years building a global robotic telescope network to find new planets around other star systems with LCOGT.

Satellite networks to record Earth. Most recently, Ben was at Planet, an Earth imaging company, for 5 years. He designed and launched over 300 satellites. Ben bought payload space on rockets, developed new space missions, and designed and built the camera system used on the satellites.

But all that searching for life inspired Ben with a new idea—the desire to save Earth’s precious biodiversity for the future and to help life expand out into the universe.

And from there, the seed that would become LifeShip was planted.
