The nursery rhyme line, “Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are?”, aptly describes the way people around the globe felt about the world’s first satellites.
December 2022 marks 50 years since humankind has walked on the Moon or travelled beyond low Earth orbit.
Space is inspiring, but the special infrastructure and expertise needed to plan missions and launch spacecraft can keep great ideas stuck on the ground.
However, an Australian-based company is working to change that.
Space near Earth is fast becoming crowded. There are around 8,000 satellites orbiting Earth, and it’s expected that number will reach 100,000 in just the next 5-10 years. Add on other infrastructure and floating junk, and you’ve got a seriously busy place.
