“Revolutionizing Space Technology: Reusable Rockets and Satellites by TechCrunch”

Hello and welcome back to TechCrunch Space. “SpaceX has made rockets reusable, Orbit Fab makes satellites reusable,” he said. “In this world today, if you’re running a rocket company, and you’re not working towards reusable rockets, you’re working to a dead end. The same is true of satellites: If you’re not making your satellites reusable, you’re just putting preordained junk into orbit.”I learned a lot from this deep dive into China’s struggles to bring on international partners to its International Lunar Research Station initiative. On April 1, 1960, THE VERY FIRST weather satellite was launched by NASA.

The Future of Refueling in Space

This week, we had the chance to sit down with Orbit Fab CEO Daniel Faber and discuss the company’s latest achievement – the first refueling port to hit the market. And the best part? It’s only $30,000.

“SpaceX has made rockets reusable, Orbit Fab makes satellites reusable,” Faber shared. “In this world today, if you’re running a rocket company, and you’re not working towards reusable rockets, you’re working to a dead end. The same is true of satellites: If you’re not making your satellites reusable, you’re just putting preordained junk into orbit.”

Understanding China’s Space Program

China’s space program has made significant strides in recent years, but it can be difficult to fully comprehend its goals and partnerships as a non-Chinese-speaking Westerner. That’s why we turn to Andrew Jones’ detailed reporting on China’s struggles to bring on international partners for its International Lunar Research Station initiative.

Gain insight into China’s space program and the challenges it faces in achieving its ambitious goals.

Celebrating a Milestone: The First Weather Satellite

Did you know that on April 1, 1960, the very first weather satellite was launched by NASA? It’s easy to take for granted the abundance of weather data we have now, but it’s important to recognize the history of this crucial technology. The satellite, named TIROS 1 (Television and InfraRed Observation Satellite), paved the way for future advancements in weather forecasting.

“It’s odd to think about, because low Earth orbit is rapidly filling out with spacecraft that provide tons of useful data on weather… but we had to start somewhere,” NASA noted.
