10 SmallSat Startups Launching Fleets into Outer Space

We recently introduced you to the super-secret, shadowy government agency known as DARPA.

The agency blinked into existence when in 1957 the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, […]

Finnish NewSpace Startup Develops Water Propulsion Tech

There are all sorts of statistics out there about how often tech startups fail, with data research firm CB Insights saying that 70% of upstart businesses close shop in less than two years.

The Global Impact of Cheap Satellites and Launches

This past summer we sent one of our MBAs up to Alaska to search for the origins of Alaskan Thunderfcuk and to see if any innovation might be happening that far up north.
