A new space economy

A new space economy: The business case to dream

A new space age is emerging. Over 50 venture capital firms invested in space in 2015, putting more VC dollars in to the sector in that year alone, than in the prior 15 years combined. Rapidly falling costs are lowering the barriers to participate in the space economy, making new industries like asteroid mining, space tourism, and in-space manufacturing viable.
