“The Space Report” covers some historical information, but the report itself only goes as far back as 2006. Each report can be purchased online separately, but we also offer a boxed set of the reports which were actually printed between 2006 – 2014. An annual subscription to TSR Online includes access to every eBook created from 2006 to the present.
Our most popular option is the 24-hour subscription to “The Space Report Online,” here: https://www.thespacereport.org/pricing.
This subscription costs $35.
Your school library may already have an account with us. Just ask your school librarian.
Very simply, the annual subscription allows subscribers to download the updated data behind our charts and research. It also gives those subscribers the ability to download any and all of the reports produced throughout the years.
The 24-hour subscription only allows site access to the latest information, but no data or report downloads.
We’ve been known to produce white papers, comment on pending laws for committees, provide industry guidance to communities embracing industry activities, and more. If there is a space industry or research-related request you have, just contact us at [email protected].
We rely heavily on primary sources for our information. Primary sources provide firsthand evidence about the industry. Manufacturers, government/government-sponsored reporting, legal documents, direct emails and service providers are some examples of the primary source generators we use.
We also use secondary sources. These sources relay primary source information, but also describe, analyze, summarize, etc. the information primary sources provide. News sites, books, magazines, journals, and studies are good examples of some of the secondary sources we use.
