Spacecraft Company Looking to Commercialize Space

SpaceX is creating a global satellite internet network it hopes will connect every person on Earth. Additionally, SpaceX plans to play an instrumental role in commercializing space – with plans of transporting both people and cargo to Mars by 2024.

Elon Musk, who founded both PayPal and Amazon, established SpaceX to develop a reusable rocket to make space exploration cheaper than NASA alone could do it. SpaceX boasts an impressive customer list including private individuals.


SpaceX is one of the premier private spaceflight companies worldwide. Established by billionaire Elon Musk in 2002, this revolutionary spaceflight company is revolutionizing orbital rocket reusability while making space travel more cost-effective. Future plans for SpaceX include building an interstellar Starship transporting people to Mars as well as creating an internet satellite constellation known as Starlink.

SpaceX currently operates the Dragon capsule aboard the International Space Station and maintains an array of Falcon 9 and Heavy launch vehicles, as well as having a facility in Texas to test each engine and thruster.

SpaceX is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, national origin/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or veteran status or disability status of their employees.

Astroscale is the market leader for on-orbit servicing. Offering sustainable space solutions such as end of life management, active debris removal and satellite life extension while simultaneously maintaining space situational awareness services; Astroscale boasts global reach with offices located in Tokyo, the U.S. and UK with manufacturing in the latter.

Astroscale is currently constructing its ELSA-M spacecraft to capture defunct satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO). Astroscale has demonstrated key technologies with its debris removal demonstration satellite, ELSA-d, which successfully captured and released micro-lite spacecraft through proximity rendezvous.

Under contract from the U.S. Space Force, they also possess a prototype servicer capable of refueling satellites in orbit and are currently developing a satellite with beam-hopping functionality as part of their research program. Furthermore, working together with partners they are developing a spacecraft capable of docking with multiple satellites for maintenance or upgrades simultaneously is also in development.

Sierra Space

Sierra Space is pioneering a new transportation network and space economy through technologies such as its flagship Dream Chaser(r) spaceplane fleet and expandable LIFE habitat, two key elements in their plans to establish Orbital Reef as the first commercial research and manufacturing center in low Earth orbit.

Eclipse also boasts a comprehensive selection of spacecraft subsystems and components, such as solar power, mechanics and motion control, environmental controls, life support, propulsion systems and satellites. Their offerings target commercial space missions as well as national security applications like missile tracking.

Keating’s team, composed of Juliane Carter Sullivan, Danielle Buckon and Dan Curran from Sierra Space’s Washington office in DC. These experts oversee global government operations, business development and strategic planning as part of Sierra Space’s vision for humanity in the Orbital Age, such as supporting ISS with new technologies while advocating with political, regulatory and customer institutions around the globe.

Space Perspective

Space Perspective operates out of Florida’s Space Coast, leasing space from NASA at Kennedy Space Center. Their goal is to launch flights at Cecil Spaceport before expanding their business globally.

Spaceship Neptune is an elegant and sophisticated vehicle that strives to alter our perspective of Earth. Boasting some of the largest windows ever flown into space and offering panoramic 360-degree views from above, as well as comfortable cabin and a luxury Space Lounge for relaxation, it aims to transform how we see our home planet.

Of My Imagination was responsible for designing the Neptune, with help from its London studio. Recently, they completed a six-hour test flight without passengers – it soared up 108,409 feet before landing gently into the ocean – marking success of future passenger flights with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic or Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin tickets being significantly less costly.
