Edinburgh-based rocket company Skyrora issues a challenge to recover the Prospero satellite.www.bbc.co.uk
When the team involved in Black Arrow had it confirmed the rocket was being cancelled, they renamed the satellite Prospero.
Originally it was to be Puck, who could girdle the Earth in forty minutes. Prospero is the wizard who gives up his magic powers.
What is the problem - I am sure a SpaceX Dragon could be modified to allow retrieving the satellite and return it home almost intact....
