Nowadays, private space company really succeeded and manufactures pretty good technology and space vehicle. What do you think is the most advanced private space company ( except Space X ) at the present time?

The private space operators, including Space X, which is part subsidised by NASA and poaches technical people from the Agency, are small fry compared to government space agencies around the world.

I`d like to say a few words about Blue Origin. It is a great private space company. This company may be going slower than SpaceX, but its success to failure ratio is unmatched. Of course, it`s not so advanced like Space X and does not so well in the space exploration area but still, Blue Origin has great spacecrafts and concepts that worth attention.

Also, I`d like to mention Boeing. This space aerospace manufactures engines for some spacecrafts and this company had to take part in the Artemis mission together with Space X and NASA

Finally, I`d like to mention one space company from Scotland. It manufactures pretty good space technology like rockets satellites and microsatellites. Some kinds of microsatellites take part in environmental preservation campaign by observing particular areas that musr be preserved.

I had never heard of them, and thought that the private space market was, more or less, divided between SpaceX, Virgin and that one company with "blue" in its name that's owned by Jeff Bezos.
This sounds like they're quite serious, I'll be following them closely!
