Announcements


SpaceBoard is pleased to announce the launch of its new closed Beta campaign starting in May 2016, in which a small initial group of users will be invited to test the functionalities already available on the platform. In the coming months, as we add more and more features to the platform, we will invite an increasing number of users to join our beta campaign.


If you are interested in being a beta tester, and would like to get first-hand access to the platform’s features, please pre-register on SpaceBoard’s new front page by ticking the appropriate box. Pre-registration will enable you to stay up-to-date with the progress of the beta campaign and be informed of the official public release.


This latest beta round is a significant step in SpaceBoard’s efforts to bring the space industry an attractive, interactive and user-friendly platform for easy, noiseless professional interactions.

NewSpace - Is this the Advent of the Second Space Age?

Over the past few years, it has been becoming more and more difficult to not notice a promising upsurge in activities in the commercial space industry. The developments in the space sector seem to be experiencing a fundamental shift from heavy dependence on government agencies towards a more independent private sector with quite a few dominant players. Case in point, Elon Musk and the ground-breaking technologies developed by SpaceX or Richard Branson and the space tourism efforts of Virgin Galactic, are the front-runners of what is already being touted as the "Second Space Age". These names, among other developments in the commercial sector of the space industry, fit under the umbrella term of "NewSpace."
