Launch: Finding the Balance

Space Ventures Investors has the patience to identify, monitory and potentially invest in various types of Launchers. However, Launch has been dominated by Vertical Lift of at the expense of Hoirzontal Lift off and Landing.

Vertical Lift Off

The political decisions that lead to the shift to vertical launch (citing the X-15 as proof that a spaceplane was partially viable) has spurned decades of developments in rockets, improved thanks to SpaceX and now refined (in size) thanks to Rocket Lab.
The commercial rocket as a launch vehichle is here to say. Many Aerospace companies build and operate rockets.
NewSpace companies are also designing rockets based on projected gaps in unmet demand for satellites of particuliar sizes, e.g. 100kg.
Consolidation among rocket companies will continue, as true market becomes apparent, driven by mostly satellite size and orbital preference.
Re-usable rockets are also an important part in boosting soon to be emerging sectors like Space Tourism and Space Resources, because they can cheaply and efficienty position assets in place that from the vital parts of complicated operations.

Horizontal Lift Off and Landing

The concept of a spaceplane is slowly gaining traction and is overcoming hurdles, e.g. identifying UK spaceplane certifications and space ports with long enough runways.
Progress is slower and steady, as seen by the rise, fall, or just stall, of several high-profile horizontal lift-off contenders: Stratolaunch - Development stalled after the death of its founder. Virgin Galactic - Delayed on numerous occasions

  • Polaris: Developing a spaceplane based on the experimental Hopper, developed by the German Space Agency.
  • Reaction Engines: Developing engines for spaceplanes.
  • Virgin Galactic Spaceship 2: Their Space Tourism Passenger list is about 750.
  • Airbus Defence and Space:was developing a concept for a spaceplane.
  • XCOR is no longer operational: Their Sub-Orbital Space Tourism Passenger list was about 300.

Investing in Space Exploration

The biggest query Space Ventures Investors recieves is "How do I invest in space exploration?"

There are two answers:
1. You already have. Long distance communication relies on satellite fleets and the infrastructure that keeps them operational. Taxation (though not exactly voluntarirly) is designated to nations‘ space programs, military, and search and rescue capabilities. Inadvertently, anyone who has paid tax or made a long distance phone call has been adding in some small way to the space industry. Many people are passively investing in space simply by being consumers of international data and downstream space technology. To actively invest in space exploration is another matter...

2. The Opportunities are expanding. Space Ventures Investor’s goal is to bring space savvy investors to strategically orientated and profitable space exploration projects.

There do exists listed companies that generate revenue from technology related to space exploration, and there are existing and evolving companies (including space start-ups) that are laying the ground work for space exploration by creating innovative solutions for the space industry.
