Raw slides from my talk at Campus Party Berlin during 21026 August 2012.


LOOK ME UP @motorbikematt

Where I Work  Exploration Solutions, Inc.  Sub-contractor at NASA Ames Research Center

What I Do  Exploration Solutions, Inc.  Work for Office of the Chief Technologist Emerging Space Technology Office Participatory Exploration / Planetary Analogs Education Outreach / Visual Social Media I DO NOT REPRESENT NASA…. …but I can tell you some personal stories!

 A History of Hacking  Government’s Role  What is happening now?  What you can do soon  A few other things… Doing It Yourself

THIS IS NOT A NEW PHENOMENON! Participatory Exploration = A type of Hacking? Hackers= Tinkers = Makers Just other kinds of explorers Doing It Yourself

Albert Santos - Dumont over Wright Brothers here at Tempelhof Field Did it Themselves: Aircraft

 1914 WWI Starts  1915 National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics UK beat us to it in 1909  1918 WWI ends… …Barnstorming Begins! Hacked Surplus Curtiss Jenny JN-4  1926 Air Commerce Act Regulation: Safety & Licensing Elsewhere… Did it Themselves: Aircraft

 1920 Robert Goddard “A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes” 1926 1st liquid fueled rocket launches  1923 Hermann Oberth “The Rocket into Planetary Space” But these guys were not the first hackers trying to explore space…. Did it Themselves: Space

Did it Themselves: Space Humans have been exploring space… …a LONG TIME! “El Caracol” Mexico 600~800 AD

Did it Themselves: Space Oldest Known Observatories  Greeks: 150 BC  Arabs: 825 AD  Indians: 869 AD  Chinese: 1276 AD  Turks: 1577 AD  Danes: 1580 Denfeng, China Jairpur, India

Did It Himself: Space Galileo Galilei ~ the first documented space hacker. Hand polished custom built telescope lenses Discovered Jupiter’s moons Re-ignited interest in building observatories!

Government Space Royal Greenwich Observatory Leiden Paris Berlin

 Sad Facts  Many of the ancient observatories were built to gain tactical advantage during wartime  Airplane development dramatically accelerated due to the World War I effort.  As we all know, World War II & the Cold War were drivers of spacecraft development as well. Big Brother Does It For You

October 1957  Nikolai Kutyrkin  Designed Sputnik-1 January 1958  Werner Von Braun  Designed Juno-I rocket  William Pickering  Designed Explorer-1 Government Space

#SomethingBetter 29-July-1958 National Aeronautics & Space Administration

Werner von Braun  Designed Redstone  1st American in Space  Designed Saturn-V  “One Small Step…” Government Space

Government Space …to catch up with the Russians Saturn-V hacked to make a space station…

Do-It-Yourself: Space Mars Namibi a Mars UAE

At NASA Ames, we’re making a Fab Lab to standardize ways for you to make spacecraft Do-It-Yourself: Space

127 open/planned Fab Labs GLOBALLY Dozens in Europe 5 in Germany Alone Do-It-Yourself: Space q/

Do-It-Yourself: Space  What is a Fab Lab? Laser Cutter 3D Printer Desktop Mill Vinyl Cutter Shop Bot

Do-It-Yourself: Space Our goal is to make satellite construction as easy as downloading 3Dfiles to be printed, milled, & otherwise assembled into functional spacecraft.
