There are now numerous opportunities to cash in on the space race, but that doesn't make all of the companies going public worth your money. Rocket Lab (NASDAQ: RKLB) quickly gained altitude after going public at the end of August through a merger with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), but more recently, the satellite launcher's stock has been heading for a splashdown. Rocket Lab was founded in 2006 and has been servicing the aerospace industry since 2018, when its Electron rocket made its first orbital launch and deployed customer satellites for Earth imaging, weather monitoring, and ship tracking.

ESO/L. Calçada, Exeter/Kraus et alSpace is full of weird stuff, but more than 1,300 light-years from Earth, there’s a star system called GW Orionis that makes a lot of other bizarre phenomena seem outright dull.For starters, GW Orionis has three stars rather than the usual one. Two orbit each other, and the third orbits the pair. Already we’re in territory stranger than Star Wars.And that’s not all. The three stars with their clockwork orbits are surrounded by three rings of dust and gas. Such r

Elon Musk says Starship should be ready for first orbital launch next month, 'pending regulatory approval'
SpaceX's Starship rocket is still in development in southeast Texas, with major progress being made on key elements like the launch tower construction, and installation of the vacuum-rated Raptor engines that will power the vehicle once it reaches space. Elon Musk says that it could be ready to make its first orbital flight attempt next month — provided it gets the regulatory sign-offs it needs. SpaceX will require approvals from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to make the attempt, as it has for all of its prior test flights of Starship from its development location outside of Brownsville, Texas.
U.S. intelligence officials responsible for protecting advanced technologies have narrowed their focus to five key sectors: artificial intelligence, quantum computing, biotechnology, semiconductors and autonomous systems.Why it matters: China and Russia are employing a variety of legal and illegal methods to undermine and overtake U.S. dominance in these critical industries, officials warned in a new paper. Their success will determine "whether America remains the world’s leading superpower or i

Hookie Co. has created this fully-electric motorcycle designed to play a part in interstellar mobility. The Tardigrade is a 8.5 feet long fully-electric motorcycle with a tubular exoskeleton that has a 68 mile range when fully charged. This won’t replace the rover but adds an additional source of transportation on the moon's surface, and while on Earth the Tardigrade is 300 lbs. On the moon, the motorcycle will only weigh 50 lbs. Learn more at Autoblog.com Transcript: Moon motorcycle concept. The Tardigrade is not your average motorcycle designed by the German-based company Hookie. This concept is for astronaut transportation on the moon. The electric bike is 8.5 feet long with a tubular exoskeleton. When fully charged, the Tardigrade has a max range of 68 miles, and while the moon motorcycle weighs 300 lbs on earth. It will only be 50 lbs thanks to the moon’s gravitational force. Tardigrade will be exhibited at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
