Origins: In the late 1980s, Motorola envisioned a world connected by a global satellite communication system called “Iridium.” But the ambitious project faced financial hurdles and eventually led to bankruptcy in 1999. However, the dream of Iridium lived on. A new company, Iridium Satellite LLC, rose from the ashes, acquiring the assets of the failed Motorola project. This marked a significant turning point for Iridium, paving the way for its eventual success.
