🚀 Top Stories

1) The FTSE Russell Indexes completed their annual rebalance this week and seven space stocks joined the ranks. 
  • Russell 3000 additions include: Astra ($ASTR), Momentus ($MNTS), Planet ($PL), Redwire ($RDW), Rocket Lab ($RKLB), Spire ($SPIR) and Terran Orbital ($LLAP).
     
    • Satellogic ($SATL) and Virgin Orbit ($VORB) were announced to be additions on June 3rd but did not end up making the final cut.
       
  • Russell Microcap additions include: Astra ($ASTR), BlackSky ($BKSY), Momentus ($MNTS), Redwire ($RDW), Spire ($SPIR) and Terran Orbital ($LLAP).
2) Relativity Space announced a multi-year, multi-launch Launch Services Agreement with OneWeb.
  • Relativity will launch their LEO satellites starting in 2025. This agreement marks the fifth multi-launch customer secured by Relativity totaling $1.2B+ in backlog. The terms of the contract were not disclosed.
3) Inmarsat released a 20,000 person survey covering 11 countries to dive deeper into question "what is the value of space?"
  • While we cannot cover all the findings of the 50 page document here, the survey suggests that perceptions of space are shaped more by popular culture and less about the role space plays in today’s economy. 
     
    • Findings show 21% of people associate space with ‘aliens’ and 10% with ‘Star Wars’ vs. 8% who do for ‘communications & connectivity’ and 3% for ‘broadcasting & television’.
       
  • "The most significant insight from this research is that people across the world are largely unaware of the true value of space: neither its current significance nor the value it holds for future generations."
