Now that you've seen the satelite, you may be interested in details. You might be asking yourself how do they plan on getting this "thing" into orbit? That's an easy question. The Pegasus is the carrier for the satellite. This rocket is attatched to the bottom of a jet plane. When the plane reaches 30,000 feet, the Pegasus is dropped and a motor in the rocket starts up. This motor then shots the rocket into space. At the desired height, the Pegasus spins out the satellite into orbit.
