Last talk before launching his satellite. Open Source Satellite Initiative.

  • Tool you hit and it says I love you.
  • Jewellery made of uranium for people who want to commit suicide (you can’t take it off).

Mission: test a 100% commercial-grade nano sized satellite; publish a manual; build an open source platform for the nano satellite. Satellites for Dummies. — 50 already in space. 1kg.

Easy! Build a satellite, rent a rocket, get a something authorization frequency… etc steph-note: list gets worse

Most important thing: has to withstand radiation!

steph-note: great talk but hard to take notes!

Goal: making a database of space qualified components to make them more easily accessible => accessible space programme.

steph-note: basically Hojun Song is walking us through the process of building his own satellite and launching it, and it’s quite funny. Worth watching the video!

Only need to sell 10’000 T-shirts to fund your satellite! (9800 to go!)

steph-note: starting to think the “extreme hackers” in this session are in fact artists 😉
