by | Jun 17, 2020 | commercial launch services, Finance, History, Seradata News

The previously announced sale of Spaceflight Inc – the rideshare organising part of Spaceflight Industries – to a partnership of two Japanese companies has been completed. The buyers are Mitsui & Co and Yamasa Co. Both companies will hold 50 per cent of Spaceflight.

As detailed in February, Spaceflight will remain a privately owned US-company. Spaceflight CEO Curt Blake is expected to stay on in his current position.

The next activity for Spaceflight is the rideshare of two BlackSky Earth-imaging microsatellites, which are manifested on the upcoming SpaceX Starlink mission, planned for late June 2020.
