How much does it cost to put a satellite in space?
How much does it cost to buy a satellite that has a camera on it, connection to a network on earth, and a somewhat big hard drive.
Thank you for all the answers.
a little satellite: 20 million for a pegasus launch to low earth orbit.
a big satellite, a couple hundred million.
what you have in mind would be several hundred million for the satellite, plus a couple hundred million more for the launch.
all these are less if you can hitch a ride on somebody else's rocket.
To put something in orbit it costs about $10,000 a pound.
