SpaceGAMBIT is a DARPA-funded program to enhance humanity’s survivability and sustainability in space. Our goal is to help build humanity into a spacefaring civilization by leveraging the power of the maker movement. To do that, we fund projects at community spaces around the world that are relevant to our mission. Read MoreProjects Overview

Black Rock Observatory is a tourist office/welcome center for the rest of the universe. Our mission is to teach people that space is relevant to them. They’re alive because of energy streaming from 90 million miles away. They may die because of catastrophic impacts. Our very survival depends on our understanding of the Solar System and the universe and for the first time, the tools to decode the universe or maybe even save the planet are accessible to everyone.
