Kickstarter Launched!

We are happy to announce that our crowd-funding effort on Kickstarter has gone live! We have been fortunate to earn a total of $50,000 so far due to our strong performance in both Ground Tournaments. Now, our fabrication and testing process is ramping up as we prepare to produce complete, space-ready CubeSats for Ground Tournament 4. We are off to a running start in  the build process, with our avionics, electrical power system, and engineering-unit spacecraft bus already completed. Funds raised in the crowd-funding effort will defray these costs and reduce mission risk: we’ll be able to afford high-efficiency solar cells, 3D printed titanium combustion chambers, and more!

Our shiny new spacecraft bus (latest version just arrived 9/15)!
