Goonhilly Earth Station’s Matt Cosby talks space code

Live from The Space Shed with Matt Cosby

On Wednesday 27th May, Jon and Mini Jon were joined by Goonhilly Earth Station’s Chief Technology Officer Matt Cosby. Don’t worry if you missed the live broadcast, you can still watch it (and all our other broadcasts) on our YouTube channel. Matt chats about:

  • What happens at Goonhilly Earth Station and their plans for the future
  • How they communicate with deep space (deep being 2 million km and beyond!)
  • What Matt’s role as Chief Technology Officer involves and how he got into coding
  • Types of code used in space
  • The Mars probe, Beagle
  • And of course, what his favourite biscuit is
    (warning: you may disagree with his choice!)
