  • ARK’s growing success, following a wildly bullish call on Tesla several years back, has seen its product line expand.
  • The leader of thematic ETFs - ARK has packaged a bunch of atypical equities together under different umbrellas.
  • Hard to fault Cathie Wood’s track record of unconventional bets.
  • ARKX is just that - a themed space exploration fund - which uses the definition of space liberally to build an investable universe.
  • Will she take this one to the moon, too?
