Launching the CloudFabrix Space Craft into the Orbit!

NASA’s  Nov’16 2022 launch kicked off highly anticipated Artemis 1 mission, sending an uncrewed Orion capsule on a nearly 26-day trek to the moon and back. The Space Launch Systems (SLS) megarocket appeared to perform exactly as planned during the liftoff, and was “simply eye-watering,” said the agency.

Drawing analogies, we here at CloudFabrix had our own “Artemis 1 moment”. What a pivotal year it has been for us here at CloudFabrix – we achieved 3 things – Growth, Growth and Growth, we fired on all cylinders of the rocket. It has been a phenomenal journey.
