ESA Conducts Laser Link Experiment with the Support of Planning System Developed by Solenix02 December 2014

Last week, ESA successfully conducted an experiment connecting the Sentinel-1A and the Alphasat spacecraft via laser link. This exciting experiment demonstrates the use of this technology, together with the growing network of spacecraft around the Earth, to efficiently relay large amounts of scientific data to the ground. This new communication technology can achieve an impressive data transfer rate of 7.2 Gbit/s.


Scala Workshop18 November 2014

Our latest workshop gave us an introduction to the multi-paradigm JVM language called Scala as well as a relatively high-level overview of the world of functional programming. Thereby it served as a view beyond the horizon of our usual developments.
The workshop started with some general information about the language itself and after that we learned about Scala's type system, common data structures and control flow statements.


First Successful Orbit04 November 2014

After the first successful orbit, our space exploration division has scheduled some great missions to explore the Kerbol system and become rich of all the resources out there. Our first target will be the Mun. Before we send the first Kerbals down to this rocky body, we will perform a flyby around it to find an interesting landing site. Then we will launch our best man Jebediah Kerman together with his colleagues Bill and Bob to the Mun where Jeb will make one giant leap onto the ground.


Space Exploration Division08 October 2014

Today, we’re proudly announcing the creation of Solenix’s space exploration division. Our engineers have already been working on the perfect launcher for weeks. Our initial goal is simply space mining and the trillions worth of platinum mentioned in this BBC article! Follow our adventure on Facebook.
