Because I just can't get enough of playing satellite limbo. 

Unlocking lower orbits. 

Enables access to Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO: 100-500 km) for satellite operators. Range of benefits for the operator, plus enables "self-cleaning" satellite operations due to high air drag de-orbiting used satellites, eliminating space debris build-up. 

Concurrently building Skyhaven, a suite of internal tooling for import/export control compliance.

Space sustainability and in-space propulsion startup, working on incentive-alignment solution to the space debris problem. 

Opening up Very Low Earth Orbit (V-Low) for satellites with a novel magnetic thruster based on an electrodynamic tether.

Designed to perform constant drag compensation for satellites in V-Low to allow commercial access. 

V-Low satellite operations would allow sustainable space operations, meaning no space debris build-up at the end of the mission.

Gained interviews at Y Combinator and at TechStars Starburst.

Participated in Westcott Business Incubation centre.
