Tracking Space Debris with LeoLabs

Back in 2018, Elon Musk sent his own Tesla Roadster into orbit on the Falcon Heavy test flight. Questions were raised as to whether or not the stunt was essentially throwing automotive waste into space, and the brainy experts and armchair jockeys began arguing about whether the car would pose a risk by interfering with […]

Why AST SpaceMobile Stock is So Appealing to Investors

A media pundit once referred to the Nanalyze brand as “iconoclastic.” We know what you’re thinking. What sort of tool would use such a word? There’s a fine line between how many fancy words make for a great read and how many are just wasted on the 95% that didn’t go to Hahvud. Is the […]

6 Technologies for Enabling Global Internet

We recently reviewed the portfolio in ARK’s new space-themed ETF and found the list lacking. We’ve been similarly disappointed in other ETFs that claim to offer investors exposure to a big basket of space stocks but turn out to be just the usual collection of technology stocks. We’ve only been able to find one space […]

Reviewing the Stocks in ARK’s Space ETF

Some tech themes like fintech or robotics actually have enough constituents to build an ETF. But even then, providers can rarely agree upon what stocks to include. […]

MDA Stock Offers Diversified Exposure to Space Theme

Only a few movie sequels ever truly succeed. One exception is “The Empire Strikes Back,” which every Star Wars fan knows is the best film of the series. The investors who backed the film would also agree, as it grossed about $550 million worldwide in 1980. In today’s greenbacks, that’s more than $1.7 billion when […]

8 Reusable Rocket Companies for Cheaper Space Travel

Earlier this month, we broke down the upcoming public offering from Rocket Lab, which is really the only private space company other than SpaceX that is consistently conducting commercial launches. They also share one other key element – both companies believe reusable rockets represent the future of the commercial launch industry. And they’re not alone. […]

Investing in Geospatial Intelligence Stocks

For retail investors, the biggest barrier to entry for investing in any technology thesis is the availability of pure-play stocks. That usually changes when a startup becomes publicly traded. At that time, lots of the industry’s main players will be privately held, so it’s challenging to figure out how threatening the competition is. Then, you […]

Spire Global Stock Offers NanoSatellite Pure Play

“Free of IPO constraints, SPACs can make ‘absurd’ financial projections – and this hedge fund manager says the fallout is coming.” That was the title of a recent article by Institutional Investor that warns about how the SPAC market often contains “pump and dumps” where investors who participate are buying “incredibly overvalued companies.” We can’t […]

Rocket Lab Stock Offers Pure-Play on Rockets

Companies that go public without revenues significantly underperform the market. At least, that’s what University of Florida professor Jay R. Ritter thinks as his research shows that a company with no revenues will underperform the market by nearly 30% over the first three years of trading (hat tip to StrictlyVC.) Then, there are special purpose […]

Axiom: From Space Tourism to Commercial Space Station

All eyes turned to Mars this month in the ongoing race to find life on the Red Planet, with missions from the United States, China, and the United Arab Emirates all converging in February. The next step to conquering the galaxy is to build a rocket to Mars that can carry humans there and back […]
