We are proud to announce the publication of Mach 30’s 2014 Annual Report. This publication is Mach 30’s first annual report. It highlights all the great stories from last year. Publishing this report is an important step for the organization because it signals a new level of maturity and demonstrates our continued commitment to our our open source values.
While it’s not a legal requirement, most established nonprofits publish annual reports to share their accomplishments, successes, works in progress, and project close-outs while setting the stage for the future plans and operations. As Mach 30 matures, we want to follow this best practice. More importantly, documenting our work is at the core of Mach 30’s values including transparency and the use of open source methods, even at this organizational level.
This report covers our progress in open source spaceflight hardware, our first conference, our contributions to the Open Source Hardware movement, and looks forward to the work coming in 2015. 2014 was a momentous year full of firsts, and this first annual report is one more milestone along our journey. We look forward to many more to come.
