In late Monday-morning trading, as of 11:10 a.m. ET, shares of space tourism pioneer Virgin Galactic notched a 9.7% gain, followed closely by cellphones-in-space company AST SpaceMobile (NASDAQ: ASTS), up 7.2%, and spy satellite operator BlackSky Technology (NYSE: BKSY), up 6.6%. On Sunday evening, SpaceX launched the second Axiom Space "all-private astronaut mission" to the International Space Station.
