The fact that the first mission is to investigate collisional properties of DM is intriguing. I want to come back to this later and get more details.

SuperBIT offers a lot of potential at a blue-light special price. Looking forward to following along on this story.

Doesn't work. Getting a 404 message. I suppose it's because the content is blocked in this area. Happens from time to time.
