Post Space Company Master List   Posted on: Tue Nov 29, 2005 5:46 am
Maybe this is a dumb question, but is there any sort of master list of space-oriented companies?

None that I'm aware of. I've just set them up in my favourites. The ones I've got are:
Armadillo
Bigelow
JP
Scaled
Spacedev
SpaceX
T-Space
XCOR
Have I missed any that are currently doing anything substantial? Let me know if I have.

If I myself use the hardware I know of only the I would list them as follows:

1. Scaled Composites
2. SpaceX
3. JP Aerospace
4. ARCA
5. Starchaser
6. Armadillo
7. ?
...
...
...

spacecowboy are you thinking of a ranking like that used for credibility in the world of financial business? In that case several criteria should be selected and then bundled to form an indicator. Do you have in mind some criteria?

Hi Ekke,
I'll add ARCA and Starchaser.

I only use my list:
1. checking for the latest info' on the sites,
2. verifying media articles,
3. source of information on activities of that organisation,

Not really interested in ranking them in any way. Their various activities are in different areas and some of the site listings are quite infrequent.

I have a long list on the links page, in the Aerospace Company section:
http://www.spacefellowship.com/Forum/li ... ges&cat=13

42 in total, and other links available as well:
http://www.spacefellowship.com/Forum/links.php

And in a few weeks time, every related company will get a profile with a lot of information available. (Currently already in development).

Hello, Sigurd,

what about providing a table with several criteria the values can be inserted and maintained by the posters here?

The criteria could involve:

number of media articles
frequency of articles
number of news on their homepage
number of hardware
hardware status
suborbital, orbital, lunar, interplanetary
known informations about future plans
schedules

(to be updated)

Only number should be inserted but no evaluation should be done yet. Evaluation should be done by posters referring to that table.

The profiles will have similar information, linked to news, jobs, internships, events, forum topics, etc...

And a detailed text describing their current status.
Also "search fields" will be added, to see as example "who reached space", "who is building a space ship", "used fuel types", "location" etc etc...

But most of it will be updated by our explorers team, so not all users have access to edit it... else it's a real mess.. ;)

There is so much new stuff coming soon... the current forum, links, etc will look "smaller unimportant feature" when the new major section is ready. So get ready for impact, the release is about a month into the future. :P (and many more coming later).

Figured you'd be on top of it, Sigurd -- it's just that I've stumbled across references to a few companies in the last couple months that I didn't even know existed, and they're claiming to be as far along with their hardware as most of the old X-Prize teams are (which, admittedly, doesn't say much).

And no, Ekke, I wasn't interested in ranking them, just listing them.

I believe that you can add Orion Propulsion to that list as well.

The 3rd, most bottom, picture is the Space Fellowship nextgen site in development.

For a current list of aerospace companies, please check the links page (other -> links) on the current website.
