Our 1st Photon satellite has been in orbit for more than a month now! First Light has settled into an altitude of 538 km, completed about 500 orbits & covered more than 14 million km. Meanwhile, our team has been busy testing Photon systems for our upcoming Moon & Venus missions.

With this 1st Photon we're testing tech for exciting future missions of First Light’s levelled-up sibling, the high-energy, interplanetary Photon. It's with this spacecraft version that we'll head to the Moon next year for @NASA & later onto Venus to support the search for life.
