ANIL SANTHAPURI Uber for Space, Impact on Manufacturing

With this uber for space and 3-d printing at disposal even to print rockets in such a small lead time - what will be the competitive advantage of large manufacturing players? Do they even exist? What will be their value proposition?

Doug Vining Uber for Space, Impact on Manufacturing

Thanks for your comment, Anil. As futurists, we don't have all the answers. In fact, we believe there is no one right answer. But we're pleased that our MindBullets are prompting you to ask the right questions. That's what they are supposed to do!

Doug Vining A flock of space doves

Here's a fascinating look at Planet Labs' mission to establish a constellation of hundreds of nanosatellites that scan the planet on a daily basis. The largest constellation of satellites in history - now operating since February of this year. That's the promise of UBER FOR SPACE, and it's just beginning!

Doug Vining Book a rocket ride

Rocket Lab is now moving into routine operations for small satellites, having successfully delivered a 150kg payload into orbit for DARPA. As we said in this MindBullet, soon we'll have Uber for Space (though not for people).
