GALLERY: Humanity Star

Humanity Star was a passive satellite designed to produce flares visible from Earth. [2] Its shape was a geodesic sphere about 1 metre (3 ft) in diameter, similar to a large disco ball . It was launched into polar orbit on an Electron rocket by Rocket Lab in January 2018 [6] and reentered the atmosphere on 22 March 2018. [4] According to Rocket Lab, it was meant to be "a bright symbol and reminder to all on Earth about our fragile place in the universe". [7]
