The world of space technology is projected to become one of the most promising technology industries in the future and attracts a lot of interest in technology companies to vie to the forefront.

Some big names are busy figuring out how to create space technology as cheaply as possible to reach Earth's orbital area including SpaceX by Elon "Ironman" Musk and Blue Origin by Jeff Bezos who for several hours had become the richest man in the world.

In Japan a startup called Interstellar Technologies joined forces to create a commercial rocket for transport into orbit. On Sunday this startup test launch Momo rocket as high as 10 meters. Unfortunately the test has not given maximum results.

Momo was lifted off the ground and had aired as high as 20 kilometers from sea level or only a fifth of the total height previously targeted by engineers. The company said it would test again using previous launch data to improve Momo's rocket performance.

Interstellar Technologies Inc. is a private company and is funded by its founders. All activities are carried out at a facility in Hokkaido or north of the Japanese archipelago. Their main goal is to lower the cost of flights into orbit similar to the purpose of SpaceX.

Rolls-Royce plans for flying taxi service

Tinuku - Rolls-Royce Holdings plc has designed a propulsion system for flying taxi and is starting search for partners to help develop a project it hopes could take to the skies as soon as early next decade. British jet engine maker said on Sunday it had drawn up plans for an electric vertical take-off and landing (EVTOL) vehicle which could carry to five people at speeds of up 250 mph for approximately 500 miles.

The company joins a variety of companies racing to develop flying taxis, which could revolutionize the way people travel. Aviation and technology leaders are working to make electric-powered flying taxis a reality, including Airbus, U.S. ride- sharing firm Uber and a range of start-ups including one backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, called Kitty Hawk.


Rolls-Royce’s design will be showcased in digital form at the Farnborough Airshow, which starts on Monday. The company is looking for an airframer and a partner to provide aspects of the electrical system to help commerci…

Britain announced its first launch site for the space market

Tinuku - UK on Monday ran an important leap for the construction of the first vertical launch space launch site. The proposed space port at Sutherland in the north of Scotland has been awarded US$3.3 million in funding by the government-owned UK Space Agency to develop a ground-breaking launch site.

Government Business Secretary Greg Clark Monday launched the start of a Great British Space Age that will see vertically-launched space rockets and satellites take off from the new spaceport. UK Space Agency said it selected the Sutherland site because Scotland is the best place in Britain to reach highly sought-after satellite orbits with vertically launched rockets.


The initial funding will go to Scotland's Highlands and Islands Enterprise agency to develop the Sutherland site which will use a combination of proven and innovative rocket technologies to pave the way for a world-leading spaceflight market.

The UK Space Agency is also making available a new 2.65 million U.S. dollar fund…
