Small Orbits is a space news site, with a leaning towards commercial space and long form pieces. We cover launches and landings — because after all who doesn’t like pretty pictures of rockets — but our focus is on small satellites, amateur and commercial space.
The banner image used for this site was taken member of the International Space Station’s Expedition 30 crew on the 6th February 2012. It is night time image of the Atlantic coast of the United States — parts of two Russian spacecraft parked at the orbiting outpost can also be seen in the left foreground. (Credit: NASA)
