Thanks to Moore’s Law you can build a basic Sputnik-style satellite for as little as $250. Amateur satellite-making will revolutionize the 21st Century space industry much the same way personal computers changed the 21st Century computer industry. The only question is: who will be the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs of space?Read More
The first Lithuanian amateur satellite reached orbit in early 2014. Now that it's operational, the amateur satellite organization Amsat officially designated it as Oscar-78.
