Satellites Glorified Metallic Boxes With Cables, Experts Say

ROME — A team of experts from a selective group of institutional entities of science and technology and senior leaders from commercial and military space industry gathered last December in Vienna for discussing the role and value of satellites. After deliberations which spanned for roughly 3 days, the illustrated collective concluded that satellites are admittedly over-glorified boxes with lots of cables coming and going, nuts and bolts, and not necessarily more remarkable than a Toyota Prius, sources related to the matter commented to The Inquirer.
