Building Community in Space

Micah helps people understand and participate in the global space economy, commercial space companies, entrepreneurial activity, finance, government budgets and programs, or space policy.

In his role as President of Caelus Partners, Micah leads all operational aspects of the company and the Community in Space™ project globally. Functionally, this means working to figure out the framework that will enable the future space economy to become self-sustaining instead of being dependent on government funding.

Investing in UFO’s

Space Channel News sat down with Andrew Chanin, CEO of Procure ETF’s and creator of the first space-based ETF, UFO.

The Universal Appeal & Impact of Space

Space’s impact is nothing if not universal. Within our earthly bounds, we dream of the universe and the mysteries it holds. At night, we look up to the sky and feel a sense of wonder, infinite possibility, curiosity, and beauty. It’s no surprise that we find endless ways to incorporate space into our daily lives, or why interactions with space tend to leave such lasting impressions. We want to explore, we want to understand—we want to believe.

Space is Open for Business

Capital might be the fuel to power astropreneurial efforts, but behind the capital is an intelligence that has vast options to weigh. What is unspoken by many terrestrial-focused economists and financial analysts is that the only true way to have endless growth is to incorporate space as part of the Earth’s economic influence and activity. Instead of arguing how space can help make Earth or life on Earth better, perhaps we should be thinking about how space could — and inevitably will — make Earth different.

Over fifty nations have national space programs. More than a dozen new companies now are significant players in the manufacturing and launch of complete vehicles, while literally thousands of companies now supply parts, engineering, logistics, or other space-focused products and services.

If space is not deemed necessary and is considered more of a discretionary activity, why do countries clamor over having space access? Why are they so motivated to protect technology that enables or is used in space? If a country does not already have a strong stake in space, it is a highly desired goal; from competitive advantages to establishing oneself as a global power, the authority and influence that rests on a country’s space presence is undeniable.

Countries that weren’t heavily involved in space in the past, like Lithuania and Nigeria, are gearing up for the future. Others, like Israel, are still working with the resources they have to further their own space programs. And perhaps most impressive in the expansion of the new space sector is the involvement of students, from countries like Taiwan, Japan, China, India, and across the world, who all believe in the future of space exploration.
