Surrey Satellite Technology US

The Heritage Flight will be hosted aboard the OTB (Orbital Test Bed) satellite, now undergoing final construction and testing at the Surrey Satellite US facility in Englewood, Colorado. OTB will orbit the Earth for at least five years and may be tracked on this website, joining two other Celestis spacecraft currently orbiting the planet.

On May 16, 2016 the first group of participants' capsules was integrated (attached) aboard the satellite, well before it is delivered to the launch site. A second and final capsule integration for Heritage will occur in early 2018.

Heritage Flight Mission Logo

Every Celestis mission has its own logo and mission patch, following the tradition of creating a unique identity for each launch dating to the earliest days of the American space program.

The Heritage Flight logo – with fourteen stars recognizing the 14 previous Celestis missions - commemorates the lives of those on board the flight and pays tribute to all the men and women in Colorado, California, Texas and Florida who have worked so hard to bring about this historic, Earth orbit mission.  A special marker honors Houston – home of Celestis, Inc.

The Heritage Flight logo is from well-known designer and illustrator Eric Gignac. Eric’s portfolio also includes co-design of NASA Space Shuttle mission patches for the STS 128 and 133 missions.
