Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong, Valentina Tereshkova, John Glenn, Jim Lovell.
Most of us will know at least one of these names, and what they mean to space exploration. These brave pioneers in space travel have captured the minds of billions of people around the world, and so many of us will remember, with warm delight, those grainy images on our television sets when these people made history. While most of still have our feet firmly on the ground, some of us were inspired to follow in their footsteps and reach for the stars.
In recent times, advancements in technology have helped space exploration move into the grasp of companies, universities, and even private individuals! While personal space travel may be outside our means for many of us, access to space need not be so.
Spacelink Solutions was set up to help regular people make their mark in space, and to help inspire a new generation of scientists and engineers to keep following the footsteps of the pioneers and pave the way for humanity to venture further out and explore our Solar System, our galaxy, and our Universe.
