ESA astronaut Tim Peake visits 'chameleon' telecom satellite, Eutelsat Quantum, on 26 February 2018 at Airbus Portsmouth, UK. Eutelsat Quantum is the first commercial satellite to be fully reconfigurable in orbit. For the first time, users will be able to adapt the satellite’s coverage, bandwidth, power and frequency while it is in space, to match the changing requirements on Earth. The satellite is the result of a public–private partnership (PPP) between satellite operator Eutelsat, ESA and Airbus (GB).
