    There's going to be a very near term trajectory to larger scale manufacturing in some of these manufacturing methods, there need to be proof of concept through the research done on the ISS. Some of that has already been done. There's been initial evidence showing that manufacturing materials using certain methods can be done better in microgravity. So they're a little more farther up on the trajectory. I would say within a handful of years we can ramp up to full scale manufacturing with relatively modest volume size products. But again, these, these products like semiconductor wafers and other medical devices, et cetera, are very, very valuable. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    You can still go to the international space station today, and it's still pretty highly subsidized by the government. That rocket ride, that time with the astronaut acting as your technician, basically, for lack of a better word. And then the rocket ride down. If you're going through the national lab, the transportation is fully subsidized. And so what you're really paying for are the services, the, interfaces and the translation of what it takes to change what you do on the ground to translate it to how it's going to be done in space and using those facilities or that piece of equipment to actually get it done. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    Delta Faucets is looking at flow out of their shower heads so they can maximize the the feel of water without actually taking as much. That's obviously good for energy efficiency, water conservation, and also energy conservation. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    What we have found is there are lots of applications and we have worked with lots of companies, both big fortune 500, as well as startup, bringing their cutting edge research or manufacturing to space so that they could actually achieve higher quality products, better performance products, novel materials, and increased R&D throughput. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    Semiconductor companies are looking at manufacturing wafers Cause obviously, you know, on earth we have these clean rooms where they're very concerned about defects in it and you have to scrap away if it's not made right. So the risk goes down with the risk of defects and microgravity going down. So you're looking at semiconductor companies potentially utilizing space for initially for R&D, but then eventually a pathway to manufacturing. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    We've all heard about Elon Musk and what space X did with rockets, that first stage where the rocket goes up to the international space station, that first stage, which is worth about $6 million comes back down and lands on earth. It started, I think landing the first one was on a barge in the ocean and now they're landing right back on earth. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    A small startup based in the Northeast wants to utilize electro deposition to make retinal implants. And they found through some R and D testing initially on the space station that those can be made much more effectively without fewer defects. So they perform better a lot of times in materials, even when you get down to a very molecular level defects cause bad materials and it's bad product. So, this company is now done several iterations of experimentation and shown that that microgravity does help make a better implant. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    We're seeing lots of activity and crop science looking at vertical agriculture or water management. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    Goodyear is looking at how silica forms in microgravity, which is used in rubber. that makes their tires. So potentially they can make a safer fuel, efficient, better performing tire. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    Companies utilizing space, RYD like Procter and gamble once utilize space to help improve the shelf life of their various products. They last long, you don't have to scrap as fast. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization

    Many, if not most of the pharmaceutical companies going up to space to do crystallization for better drug development and delivery systems, we're seeing accelerated disease models. https://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/26988-the-far-reaching-impact-of-space-commercialization
