Then we can see a dynamic and abundant future for our grandchildren?s grandchildren. There is no plan B for Earth.To enable this future, we must build a road to space to lower the cost of getting there. Blue is working on this today by developing operationally reusable launch vehicles that are safe, reliable and highly available. Every launch vehicle is designed for human spaceflight from the beginning and able to ferry payloads to space. Join the mission to build a road to space - step by step ferociously. #GradatimFerociter

Orbital ATK

Orbital ATK is built on the strong heritage of two great companies, Orbital Sciences Corporation and ATK, with a history of collaboration providing reliable, affordable and innovative products for almost 25 years. Orbital was founded in 1982 by three friends who met while attending Harvard Business School. Armed with business school studies and an initial round of financing, David Thompson, Scott Webster, and Bruce Ferguson, developed a plan for what would become their first product ? the Transfer Orbit Stage (TOS) for NASA. In the three decades that followed, Orbital grew to become a premier provider of space-related systems, pioneering new commercially-driven products and services to make space accessible to millions of people on Earth. ATK was launched as an independent company in 1990, when Honeywell spun off its defense businesses to shareholders. The former Honeywell businesses had supplied defense products and systems to the U.S. and its allies for 50 years. ATK expanded into the aerospace market with the acquisitions of Hercules Aerospace Company in 1995 and Thiokol Propulsion in 2001. A series of notable contracts and acquisitions continued to increase the ATK's presence in aerospace, defense, and commercial markets. Orbital ATK was formed though the combination of Orbital and the aerospace and defense businesses of ATK. The merger was announced in April 2014 and closed in February 2015.

ROCKETLAB

Our main goal is to produce ridculously happy clients. Like finding the extra fry in the bottom of the bag happy. Having said that, it should be clear why we work with the community so often. For businesses or otherwise we routinely meet with people just to 'nerd out' and shoot around ideas. If you have an idea and just need a technical angle, let us know and we'll meet you out for coffee. About the 'Lab' in our name. Yes, it sounds nice but we didn't just tack it on there to sound nifty. We dedicate a substantial amount of our time researching and exploring new possibilities. There's always something cooking in the Lab. For example, we've introduced systems such as zero-inventory commerce, where products are injection molded on-the-fly and drop shipped as soon as an online user orders them. When you need us, we're here. We have a number of clients that have turned to us after another developer has either dropped off the face of the earth or just happened to bite off more than they can chew. We don't have an automated phone system. When you call us there is a real, live person on the other end. When you email us, you actually get a response - and quickly.
