Send Your Own Spacecraft Into Orbit or to the Moon

by Kenny Hoeschen

Design, launch, and send your own spacecraft to the Moon. The “Pocket Spacecraft” is powered by solar power, thin as a sheet of paper, and small enough to hold in your hand. Thousands of these thin-film Pocket Spacecraft will be sent into space as part of a CubeSat on a commercial rocket. Some of the Pocket Spacecraft will map the wind as it flutters back to Earth and some will survey the lunar landscape before crashing to the surface of the Moon.

Personalize your spacecraft with a photo and customize your own software to monitor your Pocket Spacecraft. You’ll be able to follow every step of the mission of your personal Pocket Spacecraft. A pledge of ~$150 is required to get your own Personal Earth Scout Spacecraft and ~$300 for your own Personal Lunar Scout Spacecraft which, if all goes according to plan, will land on the surface of the Moon.

The Kickstarter project funding ends August 26.
