systems improvements, and ground-breaking new thinking.

“This is an exciting mission that can benefit life on Earth in many ways. Simply the idea of finding resources on the lunar surface that could be vital for creating a permanent base on the Moon. How exciting is that?! This could simplify further space exploration and equip us with a springboard to Mars and the rest of the Universe.”

SSC and India’s historic lunar landing
India made history with the Chandrayaan-3 mission when it became the first ever spacecraft to successfully land on the south side of the Moon. This mission not only paves the way for further space exploration but also acts as a potential steppingstone towards Mars and beyond.
We are seeing new and ambitious missions to clean our orbits from space junk, and programs to monitor the locations of these objects. But this whole industry domain is still in its very early phases.

Travelling at high speed, even the smallest of objects can cause real harm.

Debris and congestion – a future challenge in Space
While thousands of new satellites will be needed in the coming years to keep up with our modern societies, the congestion of objects in orbit pose the risk of serious collisions. And if not addressed and handled correctly, Earth could soon be surrounded by an impenetrable shield of man-made objects.
Space data is the new oil – everybody wants to access it for so many different reasons. For us and many other space companies, this source of information provides great possibilities to make life on Earth more sustainable.
