The Moon List
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first human landing on the Moon. In honor of this event, and in recognition of recently announced plans to return, SpaceFund is proud to present the Moon List.
In recent months our SpaceFund Reality (SFR) rating databases have drawn much attention in the field, quickly becoming a standard reference for those interested in the rise of a new space industry. While some of the firms listed below do appear in past SFRs and some will appear in future databases, The Moon List is not an SFR and does not rate the companies listed. Rather, it is intended to provide a database of who is doing what, where, and how – as part of this new effort.
Members of the SpaceFund team helped start the movement to establish a permanent human presence on the Moon. We believe that an enlightened partnership between governments and a strong, vibrant commercial sector is exactly what is needed to make it happen. The Moon List is our way to both support and celebrate what we hope is at last the beginning of humanity’s Return to the Moon – this time To Stay.
How to Use This Table
Sort: Click on the column heading to sort A-Z; click again to sort Z-A.
Search: To search within the entire table, simply type your query into the search area at the top right of the table. If you’d like to search within a specific column, use the search box at the bottom of that column.
Download: You can download this table as an Excel or CSV file by using the icons at the top of the table. You can also print the table.
Screen Size: The database is too big to fit on most screens, so you’ll need to use the scroll bar at the bottom of your screen to scroll right to see additional columns, and continuing scrolling down to see all companies.
This database was a special one-of-a-kind project for 2019 and will not be updated on a regular basis, however new editions may be released in the future as the commercial race to the Moon continues to accelerate.
