Launch Satellites without Heavy Rockets


SpinLaunch is a US company that has engineered a way to launch small satellites without heavy rocket launch vehicles. Instead, their system uses centrifugal force to throw satellites into space using small rockets to boost them into orbit. It’s really neat technology to watch. It’s 2.2 tons of steel and as tall as the Statue of Liberty. It helps reduce the cost to get satellites into space by eliminating most of the fuel costs. Also, satellites are becoming smaller as electronics becomes more powerful.
