Our Team

Our team, headed by Simon Mansfield and Bradley L. Bartz, is a group of experienced journalists, technology experts, business development professionals, and renewable energy specialists. The synergy between our editorial and technology teams ensures the delivery of high-quality, pertinent content. Simultaneously, our business development and marketing teams work on expanding our reach and catalyzing growth.

Our Commitment to Ethical Standards

We stand by the highest journalistic standards, quickly rectifying published articles as necessary and addressing copyright issues in a legal and timely fashion. We occasionally publish standalone opinion articles, clearly identifying and attributing them to individuals with relevant biographies. Quotes within news articles are clearly marked as attributable opinions.


We employ artificial intelligence technologies, such as ChatGPT-4 and Dall-e, to enhance our content curation and delivery. These technologies enable a personalized user experience and generate insightful analyses of trends, correlations, and key facts in the space industry. Additionally, we've developed sophisticated in-house automated analog/digital systems, now being replaced with newer methods as technologies like GPT-4 evolve to be more stable and dependable. Our understanding of automated systems is integral to our productivity and cost control methodology, enabling us to weather the business and technological cycles of the publishing industry for nearly three decades.

Our Business Model

We operate as a free news service without any paywall or login requirements. Our operations are backed by advertising sales based on direct in-house sales. Recently, we've removed all networked advertising code from most of our pages and plan to offer only industry-related advertising and marketing placements sold directly by our sales team in .
