Students: launch a litre of space into space.
That’s my simplification of the Launchbox pitch. They’re an Aussie startup that’s trying to raise awareness of the space industry in Australia, and they’re turning to schools to do it. Their basic product is a small satellite with a GoPro, a GPS and a lot of lattitude for creative use of the remaining space.
You can check our their full pitch at http://launchbox.net.au/launchbox-kit/
Launchbox is just one of the many startups I’ve met at CeBIT over the last three days (hence the blogging silence), and are among the most interesting and the most passionate people I met there. Definitely a team to watch if you have any interest in space.
