Life-Changing Private Company No. 1: The “Boring” Company Saving Elon Musk Millions
Infinite Composites Inc. is one of those companies that makes something that sounds very boring at first… but is very valuable to an up-and-coming tech industry.
After about a decade-long hiatus, space travel has become very big again. That’s mostly because private companies have begun developing real technologies that are more functional and more economical than government-supported space initiatives.
Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and other wealthy entrepreneurs are spending billions of dollars to create a private space travel market… and to dominate it.
Who will win? Well, we’re not sure yet.
But one thing is very likely: The small private companies that are developing technologies necessary for space travel will likely be acquired by those billionaires’ companies – Blue Origin, SpaceX, and Virgin Galactic – or other big space-related firms.
Some of these companies are already public and have billions of dollars in cash and shares to buy smaller private companies like Infinite Composites.
Infinite Composites manufactures liner-less composite pressure vessels that store fuel for space travel.
It’s no secret that space flight is expensive. A ticket on Virgin Galactic’s “space plane” will cost you upward of $450,000. A big part of that expense has to do with weight…
The cost of sending 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) into space starts at $8,000… and that’s just to get it into low orbit.
If you want to go to the moon, you’re talking about $1.2 million…. Mars jumps to $2.7 million.
And that is just for a little over 2 pounds…
The average SpaceX Falcon rocket weighs 1.2 million pounds!
It’s a no-brainer that space companies like SpaceX are constantly on the lookout for ways to reduce the weight of the missions. Losing just a little weight can be a huge cost savings at launch.
That’s where Infinite Composites’ pressure vessels come in.
These vessels are more efficient, cost half of what is currently on the market… and weigh less.
Traditional pressure vessels have a metal liner. Infinite’s pressure vessels harness a unique nanoparticle technology that allows them to be liner-less. I won’t bore you with all of the technical details…
What’s important is Infinite vessels reduce the mass of the rocket by 20% – providing cost savings in the millions of dollars.
Better yet, of the two competitors I can find… Infinite Composites achieves efficiency that is 22% higher than its nearest one. This makes this company very attractive for an early-stage investor who is looking to get exposure to the massively growing space industry.
The Tulsa, Oklahoma-based company’s customers already include SpaceX, Blue Origin, NASA, and the U.S. Air Force.
