First ever -- Space Hacker Workshop for Suborbital Science!

Do you have the Right Stuff to become a citizen scientist or citizen astronaut?

Citizens in Space has purchased 10 flights on the XCOR Lynx spacecraft, which will be made available to the citizen-science community. Join us on May 4-5 to learn how you, or your experiment, could be onboard.

This hands-on workshop will meet across the street (literally) from NASA Ames Research Center to learn how to do space on the cheap. With components available at Radio Shack or Fry's Electronics, citizen scientists can build instruments and experiments with more power than a NASA satellite from a new years back.

For more details, see http://www.citizensinspace.org/2013/04/first-space-hacker-workshop-to-take-place-in-silicon-valley

We hope to see you there!
