- N-Prize - Add HALO and Thoughts, be mindful of Dave's discussion on ITAR, e-mail records too:
- http://www.wikisat.org/?page_id=12 <- Look at their report video, if they can put an HD cam and broadcast system on 19 grams, perhaps it is possible to make a twitsat per omegix in 19 grams. ;)
- http://www.brokentrace.com/Files/ <- Look at '# Krzycki - How To Design, Build And Test Small Liquid-Fuel Rocket Engines [Rocketlab 1967].pdf'
- Centennial Challenge as an alternative to N-Prize (looking at competition, we are far behind them in project maturity, CC may be better): http://www.nasa.gov/offices/ipp/innovation_incubator/centennial_challenges/nano_satellite/index.html
- BT mentioned on 9/20 idea that we should just build this for fun rather than competition. At the very least, we can sell microsat launch capacity to hackerspaces looking to fly 100 gram or less satellites. Also, he said on IRC:
[16:28] <BrokenTrace> id add the Centennial Challenges Program to the list of things to shoot for [16:30] <BrokenTrace> It may not be a bad idea to add a spaceflight section to the Wiki to lump all this together. if we do a talk on this it will make it easy to find <- Collect MakerLaunch and MakerSat into one page and list possible competitions/markets to enter.
