Will the most valuable startup in the world belong to Musk?
Commercial spaceflight industry started to be in spotlight during recent days. Specifically, we are talking about SpaceX, which founded Elon Musk, a role model for some, a controversial leader for others. However now we know, that this company could become the most valuable startup in the world. Why is this happening and what is behind the success of this company?
Increasing the value of SpaceX
Due to the ongoing sale of SpaceX shares on the secondary market, its valuation could rise to more than $ 125 billion, which is a truly extraordinary success for the startup.  Regarding to Musk business plans not everybody would be surprised, as many consider him as “a goose laying golden eggs”. No one can deny him his achievements and global influence. Last October, we saw that the stock was selling for $ 56, which brought SpaceX worth $ 100 billion. After the 10: 1 split, they saw a gradual increase, resulting in a value of $ 72 per share. SpaceX achieved a big milestone in 2021 thanks to its new world record for the number of satellites launched into space on a single rocket. Musk's company is at the top of space startups. *

Investment in space shares?
SpaceX shares are not yet listed on the public stock market. Your portfolio could be affected by SpaceX success in a secondary way, for example, the purchase of shares of Momentus, which will be involved in some SpaceX launches in orbit, and also plans to test several of its development technologies. Another way is to analyze other companies in this segment. Expectations are set high, Morgan Stanley predicts that the global space segment will generate more than $ 1 trillion in revenue by 2040.
