All of the talk about globalization and inequality reminds me of a moment I had with a friend 26 years ago. (I remember because it was during the 1992 election.) I have work to do, but I'll tell this and leave it at that. /1

Glasgow leads Britain's satellite space race - Sky News, Apr 2018
"Satellites once took 10 to 15 years to design and produce but newer nano-versions can be easily built in days or weeks."

"The former shipbuilding hub has re-invented itself for the space age. It now makes more satellites than any other city outside the United States.

Scotland's first satellite, built by Clyde Space, was launched just four years ago. Since then Alba Orbital and Spire Global have joined the space race, between them putting around 100 satellites in orbit."

Startup with SoftBank, Airbus investment planning video constellation with several hundred satellites - Apr 2018
"A satellite startup that today announced SoftBank, Airbus, Bill Gates and OneWeb founder Greg Wyler as investors says it has plans to field a constellation of hundreds of satellites to provide global video of the Earth, but provided few details on how it will accomplish that goal."

"EarthNow spun out of the business incubator Intellectual Ventures last year with a mission to record the planet and provide video in real time to users on the ground. Airbus is the company’s manufacturing partner, using production lines made to build thousands of telecom satellites for OneWeb in Toulouse, France and Exploration Park, Florida."

"EarthNow’s imaging payload will drive the cost slightly higher than that of a OneWeb telecom satellite, which is estimated at around $1 million each, he said."

"Hannigan said Airbus is building the satellites using an enhanced version of the OneWeb bus produced by OneWeb Satellites, the Airbus-OneWeb joint venture that is building OneWeb’s constellation."

"Hannigan wouldn’t describe the EarthNow ground system, which would likely require either numerous ground stations or inter-satellite links to ensure real time data delivery, saying only that “each satellite is connected to the ground at all times.”"
