VCs say these 7 space tech firms are set to crush the market in the $350 billion race for space.
The New Zealand Space Agency (NZSA) will now be able to track all satellites launched from New Zealand, thanks to a partnership with space tech agency LeoLabs. The NZSA and LeoLabs created a tool with the rather flat name of Space Regulatory and Sustainability Platform that can track objects launched from New Zealand.
