Found this paper this morning and was fascinated. The word ‘innovation’ is often overused – don’t get me started on the word ‘strategy’. This is innovative, and clever. To build a functioning satellite for $USDS3,500 by reusing a smart phone and wiring it together with some pre-built componentry is a brilliant concept.
I’m not sure where this initiative went since it was launched (intentional pun) but it appears to have shut down around 2017.
