As we started 2019, Avascent’s Space team reviewed both industry developments in 2018 and January early-indicators as to where the industry may go in the rest of 2019. With Space more dynamic than ever, there was a lot to choose from. We settled on five “big things to watch” in 2019 – all of which could have an outsized impact on the space industry for years to come.
