The Planetary Society' Space Missions
The Planetary Society’s vision is to know the cosmos and our place within it. We follow the world’s space exploration missions and produce news and resources you won’t find anywhere else.
In partnership with Goonhilly Earth Station, Spacebit is building a new ecosystem for ground-based elements in space missions, including radio communications, ground networks and eventually components of mission control. We shall be utilising Goonhilly’s existing network of over 60 dishes to run our pilot projects.
The science of the Solar Dynamics Observatory will be performed on a spacecraft that allows both nearly continuous observations of the Sun and a science data downlink rate over of 100 Megabits per second (Mbps). These two requirements determined the orbit and spacecraft design as well as the definition of the SDO Mission.
