DO-IT-YOURSELF: SPACE HOW YOU CAN BUILD THINGS THAT CAN FLY IN SPACE
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 OSCA R And oh by the way.. 21 Countries, Dozens of satellites Launched in 1961 Still not new…
Do-It-Yourself: Space Space isn’t always up.. Western Australia
Do-It-Yourself: Space United Arab Emirates Arabian Peninsula
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 http://fab.cba.mit.edu/about/fa 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.
