The Prospero satellite is described briefly both in terms of the experiments that were conducted and the on-board systems for servicing those experiments that were tried for the first time in this spacecraft. Mention is made of the supporting equipment on the ground and, in particular, the first use with a British spacecraft of computer controlled test equipment and the first use of a British control centre to service a satellite in orbit. Finally, attention is drawn to the use that has been made of Prospero designs and operating experience in subsequent spacecraft projects.
