SkySat Complete (for now)

posted Aug 19, 2020, 4:34 AM by Doug Sinclair
Yesterday, SkySat-19, -20 and -21 launched onboard a Falcon-9 Starlink flight.  This marks the conclusion of a long journey.  SkySat-1, back in 2013, carried the very first Sinclair Interplanetary ST-16 star tracker.  From SkySat-3 onwards, they also carry reaction wheels and magnetic torque rods designed by Sinclair Interplanetary.

We have also watched a little startup company called Skybox Imaging become Terra Bella, become Google, become Planet.  We are excited to see where they go next.
