Hackerspaces Space Program

August 30th, 2011 Comments Off on Hackerspaces Space Program

A few months ago we (a few hackerspaces) submitted a reply to a DARPA Request For Information. DARPA is interested as to the type of organization that would be well suited to turn an initial investment into a long-term self-sustainable decades long space program to achieve the ambitious goal of inter-stellar space travel.

Our short document was well-received and we’ve since been invited to both an Asian manufacturing roundtable in Singapore (next week) and to the 100 Years Starship Symposium in Orlando at the end of September.

In the meantime, existing efforts continues in various Hackerspaces, such as the Lunar Numbat space program and the Space Program track at Chaos Communication Camp.

To get the efforts further organized, it seemed eminently reasonable to establish both a wiki page and a mailing list on hackerspaces.org:

Although right now focused on the 100YSS discussion, I think we can use both resources as a focus for any space-related efforts in our respective hackerspaces – if only to catalog and showcase the efforts so far.

If you have an interest, I invite you (space geek!) to join the new mailing list and start the discussion.
