A twenty-first century space race is upon us

The stakes couldn’t be higher as the future of a multi-planetary human civilization hangs in the balance. According to ReportBuyer, the global space industry will be $558 billion market by 2026. Today’s satellite payload deliveries, commercial ISS resupplies, and rover missions will usher in tomorrow’s micro satellites, space tourism, asteroid mining, and a human footprint on Mars. 

The cost of launch will be dramatically reduced with reusable vehicles, new composites, and 3D printing. Former competitors have suddenly become collaborators, and the fine line between industry and government has been forever blurred. Welcome to the new space race.  

Meet the game-changers in the twenty-first century space race

Leading innovators like you will need to efficiently negotiate the complex maze from design through test to launch and operation. Satellites, space crew transport, super heavy lift vehicles, ground systems—all are platforms ready for continued innovation.
