Planet Labs CEO Will Marshall talks with Bloomberg's Ashlee Vance at The Year Ahead Summit at Bloomberg headquarters in New York about the future of space exploration and what it takes to ring the Earth with satellites.
US firm Planet Labs makes satellites you could hold in your hands, and has more in orbit than anyone else. "We thought that we could do space a little bit differently," says Planet Labs' co-founder, Will Marshall.
Silicon Valley based startup Planet has one goal: to take a picture of the entire planet every day. To do that, they need to launch the largest number of satellites in human history. In this episode of Ventures, Bloomberg Businessweek's Ashlee Vance journeys to India to watch Planet's satellites hitch a ride on a rocket.
