The SpaceNews Awards are held each year to recognize achievements in space commerce, exploration and stewardship.

Since 2017, the SpaceNews editorial staff has selected 40 individuals and organizations embodying the hard work and innovation propelling the space industry to unparalleled levels of activity.

2021 has seen a record number of private astronauts making their way to space — and a record number of space startups making their way to Wall Street via SPAC mergers.
