The Twinkle Space Mission is Blue Skies Space Ltd.’s flagship mission.

Blue Skies Space Ltd. (BSSL), was set up in 2014 with the aim of providing cost-effective, rapidly-delivered space facilities for users worldwide through a service-based model. BSSL aims to break the publicly-funded model for astronomy and astrophysics missions and employ a commercial approach to create new opportunities for cutting-edge science. BSSL will demonstrate a new model for how world-class astronomy can be delivered at a relatively low cost and on a rapid timescale.
