Pure-play space companies are popping up and investors can be forgiven if they can’t follow all the business models. There are companies offering launch services, those that will build small satellites for customers, and even companies that plan to move satellites to different orbits like how (FDX) delivers packages from a distribution center to consumers’ doorsteps. One of those companies is Spire Global, which will go public by merging with a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, called (NSH) (ticker: NSH).
