  1. Hey All, It's that time of the year, late christmas gifts (actually the three kings in Spain tomorrow!). Need to build a setup for my mother with 1000€. The PC will be used as a work rig for PhotoShop editing (adobe suite in general), Sketchup, Fusion360 and maybe some CAD. Don't wanna fanboy but I've used Intel and Nvidia my whole life, don't mind trying Ryzen and I have selected a Ryzen 5 3600. Regarding the monitor, allocated 300€ to that. IPS and 27" or more is a must, haven't found much better than the BenQ GW2765HT 27". Here's t
  2. Looking back at this message makes me laugh hehe, can't believe we went from this to launching on an ICBM style rocket
  3. 1 week working in space Think this thread is a good demonstration of how projects evolve and can actually be made a reality. Working on the next ones for launch in March now.
  4. Hey! We just integrated the satellite two days ago, we should be on one of the next electron launches this year. Here are a couple pics of the last months which has ben full of testing at vibration, thermovac, emc facilites etc. lots of work but its all done! our twitter @fossasys has everything updated
  5. You are almost at 2k posts

  6. Launch window now August 1st to 31st from RocketLabs Electron rocket! GoFundme campaign is up here: https://www.gofundme.com/manage/fossasat1-la-democratizacion-del-espacio/ And here is the explanation video:
  7. Great Stuff! We are number 8 for launch in q3 of 2019. Thanks! Pretty easy to do! Final satellite does not use it but it's a cool concept.
  8. Have not updated anything on here for a while! Orbital launch has been signed with Rocket Labs, we are set to launch in Q3 of 2019 into a 385km SSO orbit. We will most likely create a kickstarter in the coming months in order to fund the remaining launch costs, keep an eye out Monthly Blogs on https://fossa.systems/blog/
  9. Gave the talk along with a workshop on open source aerospace missions at the European Space Agency, We are having future meetings with them and a couple universities so it seems there is general interest! The engineering model is finished with deployable solar panels and will be launching this week on a weather balloon to test the telecommunications. Right center in the middle row (holding the satellite) Funny to think this time last year we where joking around on launching and now We are a couple weeks away from launching a launch contract with a major launch provide
  10. To any newcomers here, this was a leaked sex tape between Luke and Linus. (Linus has a secondary channel on P***hub for this sort of stuff. ) Don't get too excited though because all they do is eat c**ks.
  11. Thanks Nicholas! European Space agency talk is on Monday and we are close to signing a launch for summer of 2019. Seems amazing how we went from a little PCB designed on Sunday evening to a working prototype possibly going to space, I would have never imagined that this would have ever grown to where it is now We are still looking for help by the way! I'll keep you guys informed. Thanks, Julian
  12. Ah nice, seems like the exams are pretty easy to pass with common electronics knowledge. Finally got my Callsign: EA4HCD, don't plan on doing much HAM stuff but at least now I can start coordinating our satellite with the IARU!
  13. Ah great, You can build cheap tape measure antennas with around 13dbi of gain.
  14. Wow, I'll be honest I have never heard of mapping the hydrogen gas in our galaxy but it sounds interesting. I can probably guess that a 10$ has nowhere near the sensibility needed to do that. You'd probably need something more precise like a LimeSDR or an XTRX. I can also imagine you need to be quite far from civilization to pick up those radio waves.
  15. Ah nice, do you ever transmit?
