spacevan™ can drop any type of payload at launcher injection orbit. All passengers including those going farther will benefit from the share of launch costs. This option is ideal for students' cubesats.
2nd stop at SSO, 750km
If your mission requires higher altitude, or an even more precise orbit, spacevan™ drops you where you need.
3rd stop with a delta RAAN of 20°
