Dear Reading Friends, welcome to part 4 in my Research in Reverse for Dark Vessel Series! David here. How big would you say the smallest space satellite is? As small as a car? How about as small as a car engine? Maybe as tiny as your laptop? Actually, the smallest satellites now are as small as your cell phone, and they weigh no more than three pounds! Some satellites are 1,000 pounds and cost millions to hurl into orbit, but not these!
When Dark Vessel was only half written, I came upon this satellite research, and with it, I developed the rest of the novel to include this startling technological marvel.
In the not-too-distant future, you may be able to order a custom satellite to do your bidding. After a while, its orbit will diminish to the point of burning up in Earth’s atmosphere. Then, you’ll simply buy another one, which, like the first, will be built to your specifications in just six days.
Watch for the custom satellite in Dark Vessel. See how vital the technology is for COIL operatives to win the battle against their persecutors!
It’s always a joy to share my research with you and give you a glimpse of how I craft stories around research I already have in hand. I hope you enjoy Dark Vessel. It is NOW available! Click here to see a list of retailers. Please leave your feedback after reading!
See you on the next page.
