5 Billion-Dollar Satellite Operator Stocks

Say what you want about Elon Musk, but he should be commended for not kowtowing to the small minority of soon-to-be unemployable tech workers who think they were hired to push activist agendas. Mr. Musk is too busy executing against his own agenda, which is to secure mankind’s future by making inter-planetary travel a reality. […]

Are There Any Space ETFs Worth Investing In?

To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, it’s as equally fascinating to believe that we’re alone in the universe as it is to think we’re not. What used to be the domain of conspiracy theorists has now become a popular topic to discuss given the military has now acknowledged the existence of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Perhaps […]

Satellite Servicing Market Getting Ready to Launch

The Nanalyze Disruptive Tech Portfolio Report, available only to annual subscribers, is a constant work in progress. One of the toughest parts has been to find some decent space stocks to include because there are very few pure plays out there aside from satellite companies and the odd and highly speculative space tourism stock. Recently, […]

5 Space Startups Using AI to Make Smart Satellites

“I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” That’s probably one of the most chilling lines of any sci-fi AI villain. HAL, the sentient computer that runs the ship in 2001: A Space Odyssey, has decided that humans are superfluous to its mission. That iconic scene has influenced how we think about the role […]

Momentus Stock – A Pure Play on Space Transport

Investing in a company with no revenues is like fronting some guy you don’t know 50 bones for a sack of chronic. First, you need to trust that he’ll actually return with your product. If he does return, you’re hoping it’s the skunk he promised, and not some Mexican brick weed. If he does return […]

7 Private Companies Building Commercial Space Stations

They say you only need to know three things about real estate: location, location, location. And if your location happens to be in Hong Kong, San Francisco, or New York, then you’re probably paying premium dollars to live there. All three are among the most expensive places on Earth, with monthly rent on a two-bedroom […]

Meet the Companies Doing Energy Storage for Space Travel

It seems everyone is chasing Elon Musk’s dream of electric vehicles in every garage, even as investors bet against the success of Tesla (TSLA) through short selling its stock. A big part of Musk’s strategy seems predicated on taking control of key parts of his supply chain, with energy storage obviously playing an outsized role. […]

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. Some industries are obviously tougher than others, like consumer hardware with a 97% death rate.  We’d wager that launching a rocket or […]

Space-Based Solar Power for Energy Transmission

One of the silver linings in the current coronavirus pandemic that is making ESG-investing types particularly happy is the news that Mother Nature is finally getting a breather as the wheels of commerce grind to a halt. Greenhouse gas emissions are way down because no one is going anywhere and factories aren’t producing stuff. Of […]

Intelsat – A NewSpace Stock On Sale?

Thematic investments in disruptive technologies are tricky. Even if you’re able to find some pure-play stocks, technologies and business models evolve so quickly that you may find that you backed an entire pack of losing horses. Solar and 3D printing are both great examples of under-performing themes that have disappointed investors over the past decade. […]
