Welcome to The Downlink


We deliver space news for decision makers.

Space is the next frontier of business, but in an industry defined by constantly evolving technology and policy, it can be hard to cut through the chatter of regurgitated press releases, media hype and marketing campaigns. The Downlink filters the deluge of information, and puts technology advances, emerging markets and policy developments into perspective. Your perspective.

You don’t need to know about the next scheduled launch: you need to know how that launch affects you and your business.

The Downlink provides focus across a broad spectrum of industry sectors, from communications innovations, to advanced robotics and additive manufacturing; domestic and international space policy to the relationships between those programs and the businesses they regulate; and the players that are helping establish the space economy in low Earth orbit and beyond. We understand that advances made in one sector, such as robotics and suborbital flight, impact other sectors, such as satellite maintenance and microgravity research.

With technology, it can be easy to get lost in the weeds when you are trying to reach for the stars. That’s why context is our main deliverable: we cover what you need to know, but also why you need to know it. In a field this competitive, context is critical to avoid expensive mistakes. And there are plenty of places to find regurgitated press releases online, but you won’t find them here. Whether it’s a long-form Q&A with an engineer, a business profile, or an investigative feature, our content consists of original reportage and analysis.
