Research Topic: “New Space,” Market Response to Influx of Commercial Satellites
Note: I did quick research and gathered resources on SpaceX, RocketLab, and Virgin Orbit, since I think they all have something interesting to bring to the table. However, other companies can be chosen. For example: ULA, Blue Origin, Northrop Grumman, Firefly, Relativity, etc are examples of other companies that can be researched and included. Relativity would be a good company to include, but I don’t think there are many technical papers that can be found about them, as they are very new, but also very innovative.
