I still remember seeing the picture of the earth taken from space at my maternal grandmother’s home as a child. I don’t know now if this was the beginning, but I had wanted to enter into the world of space development since I was a child. When I became involved in the development and launch of three artificial satellites at university and graduate school, I wondered whether I could utilize these experiences and current technology to form a satellite business.
