When You Just Can’t Fix It

Goodbye Opportunity, Hello Steam-Powered Asteroid Hoppers, and Optical Transceivers in Space

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we gaze up at the starlit sky and dream of space exploration. We chat with Noel Dube (Reflex CES) about the differences between Low-Earth Orbit (LEO), Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) and Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) and investigate the unique challenges each of these orbits present designers today. We also discuss the role of optical transceivers and interconnects will play in the future of satellite installation. In the second part of our episode, we explore the world’s first refuel-able steam engine system for spacecraft propulsion developed by Honeybee Robotics and University of Central Florida planetary research scientist Phil Metzger. We take a closer look at how this new prototype works and how it could revolutionize space exploration as we know it.
