German Orbital Systems is a young company which has set itself the objective of removing the angst from space technology by providing understandable, well-documented, and affordable products and services. In spite of the best efforts of other companies, it is still the case that the construction and launch of a satellite requires a large amount of knowledge, and as much money. This means that space is largely left to those which deal with it directly. As a result, potentially revolutionary ideas remain earthbound. If it were as easy to assemble satellites as Lego, and launch them as fast and easily as paper darts, many new ideas from quite different areas would find their way into space and quite likely revolutionise everyday life.
