We had joy, we had fun, we put a spacecraft in the sky. It has now been four years since that magic moment. Happy birthday SSETI Express! Last year we approached three of the key members of the Express team, follow the links and read what Karl, Neil and Sascha (three separate articles) had to tell us about their experience.
Background: SSETI Express was launched on the 27th of October 2005 from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia. It served as a milestone and inspiration for the next missions; ESEO, ESMO and Swarm. You can find one of the launch movies (in Spanish) by using this link – Express launch movie
