Send your own Pocket Spacecraft to the Moon

Pocket Spacecraft, a Bristol-based enterprise plans sending thousands of personalized probes to the space for a few hundred dollars apiece, since entry prices for space exploration has fallen dramatically.


The Earth Scout/Lunar Scout is a CD-sized, paper-thin probe that contains a bonded solar cell, system-on-a-chip and antennas.


Depending on the project and contribution, several thousand of those probes will be loaded onto a CubeSat and then dropped onto Earth or the Moon. Contributors will be able to observe how those probes journey downward with the telemetry sent to the Android/iOS app. The prices are; £99 ($150) to buy an Earth scout or £199 ($302) to explore the Moon.


Anyone interested in backing up the Kickstarter?
