Hope you've all seen some of CNBC's cool coverage on the space program this week. Take a look here if you haven't.
It's a good opportunity to highlight the Kensho New Economy Indices, 13 sectors (16 indices) designed to highlight disruptive technologies such as drones, robotics, cyber security, 3-D printing, nanotechnology as well as TWO space indices.
You can see them here: http://www.cnbc.com/kensho/
And my story on the indexes here: http://cnb.cx/2bGKSn6
The Kensho Space Index is at a new high (though it only goes back to 2014), and consists of 30 stocks with significant exposure to the space industry. Every wonder who builds all the stuff that goes into the space program? Of course it includes companies like Boeing and Honeywell and Lockheed Martin, but there's dozens of smaller companies that make rocket parts and mundane things like filtration and fluid control systems. And who actually delivers the groceries to the International Space Station (ISS)?
