The Cosmic Capital: Finance in the Space Industry

Over the last few decades, the space industry has evolved from a government-dominated domain to a growing private one. This transformation has resulted in significant cash inflows and potential. Examining the financial landscape of this domain reveals a diverse range of players, funding sources, market trends, and the staggering numbers that underscore this cosmic financial frontier.

Traditionally, government agencies like NASA, Roscosmos, and ESA led the space exploration frontier, receiving significant funding from their respective governments. NASA, for instance, received a hefty budget of $25.4 billion for the fiscal year 2023. However, the emergence of private enterprises like SpaceX, Blue Origin, and Virgin Galactic has revolutionised the sector. SpaceX, valued at over $150 billion, has secured more than $6 billion in equity financing, while Blue Origin is propelled by the financial backing of its founder, Jeff Bezos.

Companies specialising in niche areas such as satellite launches and Earth observation further diversify the industry's landscape. Collaborations between space corporations and other institutions, such as SpaceX's partnerships with NASA and commercial firms for ISS flights, create contracts and profits worth billions of dollars, increasing the sector's financial significance.

The space industry is not merely a realm of scientific exploration but a powerhouse of economic activity. In 2023, its global value soared to $546 billion, with a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.4%, estimated to drive it to an impressive $558 billion by 2028. This growth is evident in burgeoning sectors like Space Tourism, which is anticipated to reach a value of $1.7 billion by 2027. With space tourism tickets priced between $200,000 and $250,000, the demand for this unique experience is evident. The satellite industry also thrives, with approximately 7,702 active satellites orbiting Earth as of May 2023. Ambitious projects like SpaceX's Starlink further underscore the immense commercial potential of this sector.

IIT Kharagpur’s first batch: ‘Our classes were held where freedom fighters were locked up’
An electrical engineering (1951-55) alumnus, Narasimhan Venkatesan Patel (former member of the Railway Board) shares some interesting anecdotes about the faculty and how IIT-Kharagpur took special tutorials of students who appeared in Class 12 exams from different boards or syllabi

The Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur) was established in 1951 and is the oldest among all the IITs in the country. As the institute was set up in the Hijli detention camp of West Bengal, it has a link with the freedom fighters of India.

An electrical engineering (1951-55) alumnus, Narasimhan Venkatesan Patel (former member of the Railway Board) shares some interesting anecdotes about the faculty and how IIT-Kharagpur took special tutorials of students who appeared in Class 12 exams from different boards or syllabi.

“We mostly had classes in the old Hijlee Central Jail building in the first two years. A big hangar inside the compound served as the workshop. Our staff, some of whom had served in the prison administration as jailors, mentioned that our classrooms were the rooms where prisoners (many great freedom fighters) were locked up, and some were tortured and later died,” he told indianexpress.com.

Professor Vasudev Lahiri of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering, IIT Kharagpur who is currently heading the Nano Bio Photonics Group, is leading the way to detect different types of viruses in the human body in a very limited time span. In his research, he pointed out that light waves or photon particles can be used to understand the relationship between the subtle biological factors of the organism. The presence of viruses and bacteria can be known by the relationship between biological factors and light. Separate laboratory tests will no longer be required and not only COVID, but the presence of all the viruses or bacteria in the body will be known. Perfect measurement and detection is also possible through artificial intelligence as discovered by the IIT researchers.
