Supporting the missions of over 200 satellites
Launching anything into space takes a lot of clever people and a lot of hard work. It took just under half a million people working on the Apollo missions to send man to the moon. Less than 10% of these people were directly employed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); the rest were a vast army of suppliers, contractors and subcontractors, all working together towards a shared goal.
Now, we were born the same decade man first walked on the moon so we can’t really claim a role in that mighty accomplishment. However we are very proud of the role we’ve had in the space industry’s success ever since. Here, we’ll take you on a whirlwind history lesson on advances in space and our role in them.
From 1957 when Sputnik was launched through the next 5 decades you can see how space has changed our world.
