On today’s podcast, we'll go beyond our solar system and discuss how newer mini satellites and alternative business models can bring exoplanets scientific research to a much broader audience at a significantly lower cost than is available. We are joined by Ian Stotesbury, Lead Systems Engineer and Dr. Billy Edwards, Project Scientist, both of Blue Skies Space. Among today’s topics, our guests will explain what exoplanets are, how they differ from the planets in our solar system and why exoplanet research is so important. We will learn all about Twinkle, Blue Skies Space’s first satellite, designed to create new opportunities for transformative scientific research and how it will differ from those currently being used by other exoplanet research missions.
