Pursuit of knowledge

Hello! As far as I understand, everyone here is interested in space. I would like to learn something new about space companies. Can you suggest something?
New companies, new research? Not mainstream

It's a pity that no one has answered yet, just share a couple of my findings. I discovered for myself several previously unknown space emm ... startups?
FireFly Aerospace in Austin. (it looks like it's some kind of space capital)
SpaceVR who were about to launch a 360 camera on the ISS.
Skyrora from Britain, which is going to launch small satellites at different levels of orbit.
What do you know about the success of these companies?
Have they already succeeded? Can't find information

Okay, I'll answer myself. Suddenly, someone will also be interested. About the latter, I dug up a couple of such interesting things. For example, they print rocket engines on a 3D printer, and the project also has an elaborate space debris removal program. True, I have not yet realized that they only want to clean up for themselves or will be able to offer their services to other companies or maybe even states. We have designed and tested several launch vehicles for launching satellites and cargo of different sizes into orbit. And all this is pretty interesting space news UK

I'm new here and there doesn't seem to be all that activity going on, but anyway, to answer you, I do think a lot of people here are interested in space, these startups you've mentioned are quite ambitious and its good to see people doing whatever they can!

3D printing rockets sounds like a pretty big breakthrough for cost-cutting if we manage to develop things on a larger scale, will probably still need to see some advancement in the technology first though.
