Building a satellite is easy, haven't you played Kerbal Space Program?

Wendover Productions wouldn't have made this video if the satellite wasn't transported to Florida in a plane.

I wonder if you could make a video about the small satelites. The 'CubeSat' which are 10x10x10 cm

It's got to be crushing being so careful making one of these, then seeing it explode on a failed launch.

And this is SSL advertisement . Click bait . Fcuk off
Ruben (6 days ago)
They don't need advertisements. There are only 3 Companies that could even build a satellite SSL, Lockheed Martian and Northrop... Most the time they all work as suppliers to each other.
Am Pm (22 days ago)
And SSL financed this vdo.

Thanks for the tutorial, I'm new to the game.

“At least a MONTH before launch as there is still a lot of LAST minute prep to do” If the standards of last minute is a month for satellites 🛰 I can see why its so complicated haha.

Great video, have always wondered what went into building a satellite.

Who is on the hook in the event something goes wrong during launch? Are there special insurance policies for these?

I work for a small company and we have a small machine shop and 2 lasers that do hermetic welding for SSL housings. I personally have do drive their finished housings to a gate that is between SSL buildings 2 and 3, right next to the sign that you feature in your video. SSL wants us to deliver the parts personal because by the time a housing has been hermetically sealed they are worth close to $100,000 a piece and are wrapped in so much anti static packaging that if an EMP went off for example the electronics inside the parts would not be affected. Cool stuff and great video as always.

Is there any international satellite registry that launch companies consult/register to know if the targeted orbit is available ? Who monitors it ?
Grade Z Under Z (25 days ago)
Notified 3 days late, I rang the bell youtube, what do I need to do?
Svish85 (25 days ago)
Actually, if you really want to learn how orbits work, you should play Kerbal Space Program. 👍
John Caruthers (25 days ago)
Have some of the satellites built by SSL had nuclear fuel?

I don't comment on your videos often but everytime I watch one of your video's I'm genuinely so impressed with how good and interesting your video's are. Thanks for all your video's and keep up the amazing work!

Is the launch cost not included?
Ruben (6 days ago)
Nope, launch is extra. SpaceX has prices on their site. Its about $62 million per launch.

Me and my friends saw this satellite launch in person, pretty interesting to see how it was made!

Kye (26 days ago)
How does air traffic control change around the time of launch? It seems like an interesting topic to explore maybe on here or HAI. Just wondering bc I'm sure you can't exactly have planes flying over or around the launch pads.
Kye (6 days ago)
+Ruben ahh ok thanks that makes sense. I thought they would do something along those lines
Ruben (6 days ago)
They put a TFR over the launch area. Sometimes at as large as 45nm from the launch site. Cape Canaveral points out into the water so it doesn't affect the Daytona, Orlando, or Fort Lauderdale airports
Omarino99 (26 days ago)
