LIST OF SELECTED SPACE ENTERPRISES AND SERVICES

This is my draft list of private space enterprises, and related
services. Communications satellite companies are, for the most part, not
included in this list, because that industry is well established. I would
appreciate it if readers would send me corrections and additions so that I can
improve this database.
