Researchers who want to fly experiments in space, or full-fledged spacecraft missions, rely primarily on government funding to do so: in the US, that means NASA and, to a lesser extent, other agencies, like the National Science Foundation. In some cases, companies will pay for flying experiments on the International Space Station provided there is some return for the company on their investment, such as advancing development of a drug, or some other technologies.
