Lena Okajima is working on perhaps the craziest startup service you’ll hear all year – one that creates on-demand shooting stars.
It does this by launching a micro-satellite into orbit that fires small pellets into the atmosphere, effectively little meteors, creating a celestial light-show. Well, that’s the idea – it’s slated to launch in 2018.
Having wished upon a shooting star, Lena and her Sky Canvas team have just secured US$6.1 million in funding from angel investors to make the service happen.
