First space things I've ever built. Basic, but a start. I plan to build a more complex satellite later. Thanks for stopping by, please rate and comment.
About this creation

The VS-1 satellite is a basic spy satellite, but with incredible cameras. Capable of picking out the suit of a playing card for orbit, the VS-1 provides commanders invaluable intel.
Somewhat armored, the VS-1 can take hits from meteors, space junk, and the occasional missile (with the help of a laser of course)
The back, not much to say.
That hole is intentional, you'll see what it's for in a minute.
Three sensory packages, one in the rear for Ground Penetrating Radar, the middle one who's purpose is classified above top secret, and the front mounted set for optical imagery.
Close up of the front mounted sensory package, also includes antenna for secure data link.
Solar panels move to maximize power income.
The hole is a connection point of astronauts. The brave men and women of the UTA Space Corps link up to the VS-1 to preform maintenance. Don't get any ideas, FOF IDs in the astronaut's suit keeps the laser at bay.
