+ - Launch Your Own Nanosat Into Space-> 1

Submitted by Rozine
Rozine (1345911) writes "Ever wanted to launch your own satellite into space? Thanks to a project at the Cornell Space Science Lab, now you can. In the words of the grad student leading the project, Zac Manchester, "What better way of showing off your uber-geek credentials than having your own spacecraft?" Zac hopes that by shrinking the size of each spacecraft and using advancements in computer and solar cell technology, satellites can follow the path of the personal computer revolution, opening up space for the masses. For small donations you will receive mementos, but for $300 and up you will get your very own satellite to be launched into space. Perfect for slashdotters and school projects everywhere!"

  • No. We already have over 8000 satellites, pieces of debris, flotsam etc, in Earth orbit. That space junk alone is a major hazard. Can you imagine how many more times they would have to shift the ISS in its orbit every time one of these things got too close?

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you've got it made. -- Jean Giraudoux
