I just backed the Cosmoneer Proto (http://kck.st/2eYI8oE), an open source desktop satellite simulator. Let's hear it for Open Source Spaceflight Hardware and STEM!

So proud of Mach 30's first OSHW project and our participation in the OSHWA certification beta test.

Calling all arm chair (and professional) space personnel. +Mach 30 is developing a home scale satellite receiving station called Ground Sphere. The project team is looking for input on how people want to use Ground Sphere (for example, would it be cooler to listen in on ISS Ham radio calls or download weather satellite images or something else entirely?).

Please take a couple of minutes to fill out the survey below to help the team out and show your support for open source spaceflight hardware. ad astra per civitatem

Ditto. Nothing like delivering a little impromptu lesson in rocket science, complete with memes. ;)

We should do it again sometime. 
Had a fun time hanging out for +Mach 30  at +Catylator LLC Club with Mark Potter (from @OuroborosSpace) and Andrew Reed (from @CosmosPioneering) and J Simmons. Awesome quote of the night:
Q: What’s the deal with the Karman line?
A: Above the Karman line a plane can't "plane" anymore. So it has to "space ship"
