If you have ever thought about traveling to the moon or to Mars or even just to the Earth’s atmosphere over 50 miles, that opportunity may be on the horizon.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX is selling tickets to travel around the Earth. For only $1,000, you can put a deposit down on a space flight with Virgin Galactic (SPCE). Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon (AMZN) has created Blue Origin, which is attracting space tourists.

However, if you are looking to invest in the space industry, there are many stocks to choose from but a better alternative may be to invest in one of the space ETFs.

The exchange traded fund Direxion Moonshot Innovators ETF (MOON), which is up 19.85% so far this year. It has an expense ratio of 0.65. It was established in November of last year.

Procure Space ETF (UFO), founded in 2019, has increased by 18.99% this year. The expense ratio is 0.75.

SPDR Kensho Final Frontiers ETF (ROKT) has been around since 2018. It is up 5.27% so far this year, but it also pays a yield of 0.47%. It has an expense ratio of o.45.

The youngest space ETF on the block is ARK Space Exploration & Innovation ETF (ARKX), which went public a couple days ago.

If you are looking for individual stocks, Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. (SPCE) and Maxar Technologies Inc. (MAXR) are a couple companies that appear in at least two of the space ETFs.

Hopefully, one of these ETFs will take your portfolio to the moon.
