TMRO.tv space show has an interview with Joel Sercel, CTO of Momentus Space:
Momentus is building the in-space equivalent of the connecting flight. Use a big rocket to fly to a common orbit on a cheap rideshare, then use their in-space rocket to get your satellite to any custom orbit 10 times cheaper than what has ever been possible.

A part of the Globular star cluster NGC 5466. “On the right, Hubble images taken ten years apart were compared to clock the cluster’s velocity. A grid in the background helps to illustrate the stellar motion in the foreground cluster (located 52,000 light-years away). Notice that background galaxies (top right of center, bottom left of center) do not appear to move because they are so much farther away, many millions of light-years. Credits: NASA, ESA and S.T. Sohn and J. DePasquale (STScI)” – Universe Today

“Kepler‘s final image […], taken on Sept. 25th, 2018, represents the “last light” obtained by the space telescope. The blackened gaps in the center and along the top are the result of earlier random part failures in the camera. However, these did not affect the rest of the instrument, nor did they interfere with Kepler obtaining this last glimpse at the cosmos.” – Universe Today
