SSTL has produced a series of videos which have been made to respond to kids questions about How Space Works. 

Via homemade videos made from their own homes, SSTL's talented engineers have answered challenging questions like Can you fit an elephant in a rocket?, Can we see satellites from the ground? and 'How do we know where a satellite is?

SSTL's innovative approach to the design, build, test and operation of spacecraft pioneered and led the small satellite industry that today has become known as 'NewSpace'. SSTL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Airbus since 2009.
