      Hi Tevin. We don’t actually build the rockets which take our satellites into space, but we do build the satellites themselves. Usually these stay in orbit around the Earth but we have been involved in missions which have gone to the moon and we even have parts that we’ve designed and built sitting on a comet that’s travelling to sun as we speak! We built the reaction wheel that helped the Philae lander land on a comet for the first time. One of my ambitions is to work on some larger projects which will eventually go to other planets.
