International Space Foundation | Making Satellites to monitor the Earth.

Hello! You might ask to yourself, "What is this humble post I have come across?" Well, the ISF is a branch of the Kerrbal Fan Group "ISEA" that is planning to launch 7 3U CubeSats into space. You may ask, "But Kerbin, how are you gonna get them up there? Don't rocket launches cost alot?"   Well, they sure do! That's why we partnered with Cloud Aerospace, who I assume you all know. Initially for there first flight, they were gonna have a dummy payload, but then we approached them and asked if we use that space, and they said sure!

Now, you might why I'm posting this on the forums. I'm doing this, because we need more people. Doesn't matter if you're a engineer or just like space, if you know how to look for parts, or, know how to assemble CubeSats, or, know the basics of PR, you're invited! Just send me a PM if you want to join, and I'll handle the rest.

 

Purpose of Sats

The main goal of these satellites is to monitor the Earth's Surface for signs of climate change. In-order for this, we are going to have it put in a sun synchronous orbit around the world.

intriguing idea, though, how will you get a group of people together? I`m assuming that you will have to have a in-person-team (i cant think of an actual word right now)

Most of us are spread across either the US, or Canada, so we can't get the group together before launch. We're planning to have 1 or 2 people assemble the CubeSats, a couple more manage the Kickstarter, and 1 or 2 develop the script for it.

welp, i`m interested... I cant code, and cant really send cube sats across the country though (and suck at pr)....

Good enough for me, just glad to have people who are interested in space on the team.

Does that mean physically bring them, or arrange to have them delivered to you, or tell you here they are, or what?

Look for various parts on the internet and give us the link for it.

Well, not if I'm using it. Then anything I need suddenly disappears...

On topic: I'm interested, but there's not much I can offer.

If you want to help, but don't know how, don't fret! We need a series of ground relay stations, and you can help with that. As the project continues on, I'll tell you how you can help in this way.
