You're absolutely right. I also forgot about Galaxie 500, Chrome and Helios Creed until now.

Is there such a thing as "space rock in opposition"?

^ Dreadnaught? ... Not really though

Ozric Tentacles of course, if you haven't. Siddhartha (Turkey) is excellent too. Henry Fool is one of my favorite recent groups period. Kenny Mitchell is a recent find, very tasteful. Violeta de Outono (2012 album is amazing), Kosmos (Canada), Hidria Spacefolk

I do like Kosmos. I'm also a fan of their drummer's other band, Voivod. They're more metal, but sci-fi concept metal. Very original.

Never heard of em before tbhEmbarrassed 
I looked them up though, and the tag says post-rock. Now I'm not that persuaded by stickers - they can stand for a lot of silly things - so what makes them psych/space rock to your ears?

One of my current favourites is My Brother the Wind. These cats are the shizzle! Their second album 'I wash my Soul in the Stream of Infinity' is a brilliant slice of modern space rock. 
Here's a link to the album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKl92SFnbuA

Nice artwork as well:

I guess they're called post-rock because they are instrumental and their songs are about 10 minutes or more. I do like a lot of post-rock, but I don't see too much similarity between Tortoise and Sigur Ros other than epic instrumentals. Post-rock, like space rock or prog rock, is not a specific sound or style. 
With Evpatoria Report there's definitely a cosmic theme. They're named after a facility in Ukraine that sends out space signals. One of their songs is called "Cosmic Call". They have a very spacey, echoey sound. Like the tones ring on for infinity drifting further and further away. My Brother the Wind has a similar sonic quality. Maybe a little mellower, but I' m definitely digging it.

Thanks for the explanationSmile I can definitely relate to your description of tones that seem to ring on for infinity. I may have to check this one out!

yes, Spiritualized MUST be mentioned, especially "Ladies and Gentlemen..."

I just saw them perform this whole album with a 6 piece string section, 6 piece horn section, and 7 piece gospel choir. Add to that the keys, bass, drummer, orchestral percussion AND 3 guitarists....it was mind blowing.

In "modern" space-rock, I really like these bands: Hidria Spacefolk, Taipuva Luotisuora, Moonwagon and Quantum Fantay. Smile

If anyone's interested in non-rock space music, I would recommend Dr. Fiorella Terenzi. She's an astrophysicist who has made music out of radio waves and microwaves from space converted into sound waves. Also, Roderick Kettlewell has an album called "Bach and the Winds of Mars" (or something to that effect). There are also a few radio shows that play material like this called "Hearts of Space" and "Echoes". They are syndicated on different stations, but I'm sure they can be found online or through TuneIn. They're both kind of new agey, but in a good way.

I also get a spacy vibe from much of Stars of the Lid's output, extremely minimalistic neoclassical ambient which nonetheless has a strong sense of forwards momentum and uses a varied set of instrumentation. Not to mention Biosphere's Patashnik which is a concept album themed around the Soviet space program, and perhaps more accessible as far as electronic ambient goes. The same project's Autour de la Lune is also themed around Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon.

I'd second the recommendation on Moonwagon.

I'd also highly recommend the Cosmic Dead, particularly this album:

Another band I forgot to mention sooner is Subarachnoid Space. They're not around anymore, but they were doing hard, psychedelic space rock in the 90s. Also, Flying Saucer Attack are kind of a blend of shoegaze & space rock.
