Twyman Clements CEO/CTO  


Twyman Clements serves as the President and CEO of Space Tango. Beginning with the Kentucky Science Technology Corporation, Clements first began his work as an undergraduate student working on a satellite in conjunction with Kentucky Space LLC.
He continued to manage the same program with Kentucky Space for four years after earning his masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Kentucky. It was then that he recognized a need in the commercial space market. Four years later, Twyman began to develop the for-profit start-up -- Space Tango.  Twyman is the engineering genius behind many of Kentucky Space’s Satellites and ISS equipment. Today, he has applied the same skill and knowledge to the development of Tango-Lab1 and CubeLab companions.
