Year 1

DIY Space Exploration was funded by SpaceGAMBIT in 2013 and 2014 to create engaging content that will inspire the general public to support and participate in space exploration. We break down complex the complex technology and science used in space and create easy to digest multimedia content (articles, videos, infographics and handouts) and promote both online and offline.

The Space Badge Program is a branch of the Curiosity Hacked Badge Tree design to explore space-related concepts and skills through STEAM education. Each badge will focus on an aspect of space technology and can be acquired individually.

Using modern advances in technology we are constructing a closed cycle habitat for one person. Modern LEDs, microcontrollers, sensors, and other technologies will be used to upgrade legacy hardware and miniaturize it as much as possible. Read MoreHAESH: Hackerspace Earthship

Open Bioreactor is an open-source personal desktop bioreactor that will enable anybody to grow automatically necessary materials or biologically synthesize molecules, with the least amount of energy possible. Read MoreOpen Bioreactor

The Make-a-Space Kit is a detailed project plan and guidelines for founders and board directors of hackerspaces and makerspaces that leads groups through four stages in the lifecycle of a space: Discovery, Formation, Launch, and Outreach. Read MoreMake-a-Space Kit

The Space Hacker Workshop introduces citizen scientists and hardware hackers to the experiment flight opportunities offered by Citizens in Space. During the two-day workshop, participants learn about microgravity and suborbital science, the XCOR Lynx spacecraft, the Lynx Cub Payload Carrier, and how to build suborbital payloads.

SatStatSim is an educational simulator of satellites and small space stations. Using a mix of modular and parametric parts you can assemble an object to be launched either complete or in pieces, and get simulated reports on many features and performance like the potential endurance, heat issues, power budget, how much it would cost to launch into orbit on various launch systems.

SilSuit is a prototype partial space suit that in the future, can be developed into a self­-contained mechanical pressure suit for in­space extra­vehicular activity with integrated HUD and GUI for suit control and status. The aim is to improve current space suit designed by improving mobility, reducing bulk, space suit cost and manufacturing complexity by use of mechanical pressure and experimenting with different designs, materials and manufacturing techniques.

PSWARM is printing the first vacuum compatible planetary rover thinbot components. Enabling a leap towards the next generation of asteroid and planetary exploration rovers, we develop novel open source technology needed to make future mobile ultra-lightweight printable paper thin rovers (“thinbots”), and develop a SWARM distributed architecture mission concept ideal for Asteroid and Planetary Exploration by swarms of mass printed rovers.
