Space Race 2.0 is heating up, with new satellite firms attracting venture capital to develop satellites that will contribute data to serve the needs of weather, climate, maritime and other customers that are constantly hungry for information. On Tuesday, one of these startups, Spire, announced it raised $40 million in a Series B round of venture capital financing.
