Pocket Spacecraft Wants to Fly You to the Moon

by Blogburger on July 3, 2013

Pocket Spacecraft is offering ordinary people the opportunity to track and personalize their own tiny spacecrafts on a journey to the moon. Pocket Spacecraft is hoping to raise about $ 440,000 via its Kickstarter campaign to finance a mission that would send small polyimide discs called “Scouts” aboard a larger spacecraft, the Interplanetary CubeSat mothership, into space. Each disc is equipped with solar cells, a metal hoop that acts as an antenna, and sensors and instruments that adhere to its surface to keep it thin and light.
