Goonhilly Makes Plans for Space Exploration
Goonhilly Earth Station, a U.K. space company, has launched its roadmap for commercial space communications, space exploration, data services, and engineering design. These new services will be provided in part by a recent 32.4 million pounds ($43.05 million) in investment and contract wins.
Goonhilly has a fully funded plan to launch a private deep space communication network with the European Space Agency (ESA), which will support commercial lunar and Mars missions.
The company additionally plans to open a Research & Development (R&D) and manufacturing facility for the development of new space communications projects. Goonhilly will also invest in facilities in the United States and Australia to support deep space endeavors, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations, and international terrestrial projects.
