Every day in a newspace startup is interesting, but some days are even more so than usual.
On monday, the crown prince (and princess) of Luxembourg came to visit our company. As part of the visit, I helped run a science fair to discuss various aspects of asteroid mining. One key aspect is the spacecraft that will perform asteroid prospecting (it’s exactly what you think it is: does this object have the quality and quantity of resources that we’d like to extract), and that was my station. Not only did I get discuss interplanetary spacecraft design with interesting people, I also made a cameo appearance in a Geekwire article focusing on the visit:
All in all, it was a pretty good day 🙂
