Frontier Astronautics - Tim Bendel 

Frontier Astronautics tries to help small space companies.  They are based in a missile silo in Wyoming.  One of their customers is New Stone Aerospace.  They are working on a NASA project.  They are designing a robot.  They want it to smart enough to explore on its own, like if it were on an asteroid or one of the moons of Jupiter.

They have a Custom CNC machine.

X-L Space Systems produces 70%-99% Hydrogen Peroxide on site.  It is for sale.

Recently they've hosted Speed Up and the University of Colorado.

The walls at the site are a minimum of two and a half feet.

In addition to hosting other companies they are doing their own projects.  They are working on an engine.
