Oxford Space Structures launch SpaceCot

ESA BIC alumni Oxford Space Structures have just launched SpaceCot - a project they have been working on since their time in the business incubation centre at Harwell.

SpaceCot is brand new travel cot developed using space technology. It is designed to be lighter, stronger and faster to set up giving parents an easier alternative. The space connection within SpaceCot comes from an ESA satellite, Alphasat which used a special opening mechanism to unfold its 40m solar wings.
