We are a non-profit multimedia developer and publisher based in the UK but offering a range of services that span the globe. The name 'Sambiglyon' is derived both from a Greek term meaning 'Education, Entertainment' and also our mascot 'Sam the Big Lion', who represents what we do but also our values - including friendliness and protectiveness - that make us something special.

More on NASA's LDSD 'Flying Saucer' Test - Update
"Due to weather conditions, there will be no launch of the LDSD test vehicle Tuesday, June 3. Other potential launch dates include June 5, 7, 9, 11 and 14. Launch decision for Thursday, June 5 will be made on Wednesday, June 4. Check back with us for updates."

"Our goal is to get to an altitude and velocity which simulates the kind of environment one of our vehicles would encounter when it would fly in the Martian atmosphere," said Ian Clark, principal investigator of the LDSD project at JPL. "We top out at about 180,000 feet and Mach 4"
