A new space race is taking place – this time not between countries, but between companies. In the Apollo era the ‘space players’ consisted of NASA, Boeing & Lockheed. Now, the list continues to grow to include nimble start-ups like SpaceX, Blue Origin, Sierra Nevada Corp. and more.

If you have a passion for space, space travel, discovery or science, now is the time to join the new generation of space pioneers. With booming activity in the private sector, the space industry has opened up to all disciplines. You have the opportunity to make a big impact on this exciting final frontier.
