Concept refinement: Worldwide hackerspace network for sattelite ground stations

Motivation:  To help facilitate the operations of manned orbital spacecraft and increase communication and telemetry coverage.  The distributed nature of hackerspaces make them good candidates to increase the opportunities of ground-station contact with orbiting spacecraft.


  • Approach hackerspaces that meet minimum requirements to help Mach 30
  • Compile an instructions kit and directions for setting up a remote ground tracking station
  • “Employ” thier help with the tracking and communications for orbital operations.

Needs:  sky visibility, roadio communication, spacecraft telemetry tracking
