Crowdsource the Final Frontier! Meet the people who raised funds for building satellites, rockets and more! They will tell their success stories, and give advice to future space project Makers.
The dream of space has tantalized many men and women. Advances in technology now enable DIY rocketeers to reach new milestones. On September 11, 2012, a team of experienced hobbyists reached 104k' with full recovery.
Three leaders tell their tales: Ed Wright's Citizens In Space program will put your experiment (and maybe you!) in space; Peter Platzer's ArduSat platform puts your nano-satellite in orbit; and Matt Reyes is making smartphone nano-satellites and crowdsourcing space science at NASA Ames Research Center. Hosted by MAKE's Keith Hammond.
