Ardusat   Rent Your Own Satellite

Based out Mountain View, California, http://nanosatisfi.com/” target=”_blank”>NanoSatisfi is a start-up company that wants to bring space exploration to the masses. The outfit has built a tiny satellite called ArduSat, measuring 10 by 10 by 10 centimeters, that’s equipped with an ambient light sensor, magnetometer and a Geiger counter, as well as multiple cameras to take photos of the Earth. It uses a UHF transceiver to send and receive data with the servers at NanoSatisfi, and the company is offering individuals the opportunity to rent the device for about $250 a week. The makers of ArduSat have compiled a list of possible activities one could perform with the satellite, each falling under three distinct categories — science, engineering and entertainment — with highlights ranging from hunting for meteors to mapping the earth’s magnetic field. Check out the ArduSat Kickstarter http://kickstarter.com/projects/575960623/ardusat-your-arduino-experiment-in-space” target=”_blank”>page to find out more.
