This Sunday will likely see the launch of the European Space Agency’s [ESA] Vega rocket into space. On board will be 53 individual satellites, a huge increase to the number Vega could previously carry. The increase in capacity is very much thanks to a Czech project led by the company SAB Aerospace, which revolutionised the rocket’s dispenser that carries the satellites. The project has already been twice delayed and was rescheduled from Friday to Sunday this week. I spoke to SAB Aerospace CEO Petr Kapoun about the importance of the project and began by asking him how he is feeling ahead of the launch.
