Creating a New Space

Our team of space scientists is on a mission to dramatically transform how satellites will be designed, built and launched. All-new applications, faster launch times and plummeting costs are right on the horizon. With our patented satellite technology orbiting 1,000 miles above, we'll all beĀ able to do more with less down here.
