1. Made in Space
If plummeting through Earth’s atmosphere at the speed of sound inside a ball of fire doesn’t sound particularly fun, Made in Space, creators of the world’s first zero-gravity 3D printer, now makes the material used to print 3D in space for sale. Made in Space were the ones who designed the first 3D printers designed for use on the International Space Station, Made In Space is focused on developing the technologies necessary for humanity to become a multi-planetary civilization.
2. Oxford Space Systems
Oxford is certainly going places. It is now is set on becoming the leading supplier of deployable structures globally. It works in three principle areas of development: deployable panels, flexible composite boom systems and large deployable antennas. Development collaboration contracts are under way with Europe’s largest satellite builders as well as emerging players in the microsat and cubesat markets.
When it comes to Nanoracks, it is widely acknowledged that NanoRacks is committed to helping stimulate the market demand across all orbiting Platforms. They are into creating a commercial climate conducive to allowing new users (from students and researchers to government space agencies and individuals) to conduct research, design experiments, tinker, make mistakes… and potentially realize wonderful breakthroughs in low-earth orbit and beyond.
5. Bright Ascension
It have always had a penchant for the space industry. They offer a fresh and a very innovative approach to engineering R & D in the space industry and other high technology areas.
Now what Masten does is that Masten lowers the barriers to space access through reusability. through reusability. As the technology, it focuses on entry, descent, and landing technologies (EDL) to ensure precise and safe landings on planets and other celestial bodies.
8. Deep Space Industries
It was built upon the spirit of international cooperation. They have assembled a world leading team which has unmatchable experience in asteroid geology, mining, spacecraft design, astrodynamics and entrepreneurship. DSI is going to harvest, process and manufacture resources found on Earth and in space in order to create a reliable supply chain of products, fuel and building materials in space.
10. Virgin Galactic
It is a spaceflight company within the Virgin Group. Virgin Galactic is developing commercial spacecrafts. It also aims to provide spaceflights to space tourists, suborbital launches for space science missions and orbital launches of small satellites. This company also has plans to provide orbital human spaceflights, as well as develop an orbital launch vehicle.
11. Bagaveev Corporation
It builds and tests 3D-printed aerospike rocket engines. These engines power the upper and lower stages of a 3-ton, 35 feet rocket which is designed to deliver 10-12 kg nanosatellites to low Earth orbit and Sun-synchronous orbit. Both these stages of the rocket in question are designed in a manner so that they may be reused with considerable ease. It is certainly a different approach than conventional proposed solutions of hybrid or pressure-fed engines that are difficult or nearly impossible to scale.
13. Blue Origin
It was set up by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos. They are an aerospace developer and manufacturer. This company develops technologies to enable private human access to space with the goal of dramatically lower cost and increased reliability.
It designs, launches advanced rockets and spacecraft. It is the brainchild of Elon Musk. As a matter of fact, the company was founded to revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.
