Business of Space: Media Outlets

Goals

To create a list of 5-7 more media companies (with websites) that serve the category 'business of space'. The media outlets should be those that focus on the intersection of business and space, rather than those that focus more on information about space science (although there will likely be some overlap). The media outlets should be those that are geared towards business and industry, rather than general consumers. The media outlets found in the previous request are Space News , Space.com , SpaceRef and SpaceDaily .

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
This leg of the research was able to successfully find 7 more media companies that focus on the business of space. We can continue researching to create a list of 5-7 more media companies (with websites) that serve the category 'business of space'. The media outlets should be those that focus on the intersection of business and space, rather than those that focus more on information about space science (although there will likely be some overlap). The media outlets should be those that are geared towards business and industry, rather than general consumers. For each, we will provide a description of the company showing how it's business-focused and a short analysis of their space-related content similar to the analysis provided for the 7 companies above.
Alternatively, because there appears to be a significant number of media outlets focusing on this topic, we can start compiling a spreadsheet of media outlets that meet your criteria. This option will allow our team to provide you with a much larger list of media outlets per request. In this case, we will likely be able to provide you with 20-50 more media outlets. For each, we will provide 1) their name, 2) a link to their website and 3) a link to an example article in which they discuss the business of space. This option may get you closer to your original goal of trying to understand how many media outlets are competing in this space. Here is an example of the spreadsheet we can create for you: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13JJCOBUhwUGKZwzeEwjd7Zpi7zzR7T0FAzj5iAJfNEY/edit?usp=sharing
