Abstract: For a $1$-connected spectrum $E$, we study the moduli space of suspension spectra which come equipped with a weak equivalence to $E$. We construct a spectral sequence converging to the homotopy of the moduli space in positive degrees. In the metastable range, we get a complete homotopical classification of the path components of the moduli space. Our main tool is Goodwillie's calculus of homotopy functors.
