TubeSat Personal Satellite Kit - Assemble Your Own Working Space Orbiter
TubeSat Personal Satellite Kit
Assemble Your Own Working Space Orbiter
Want to see for yourself that the world isn't flat? Would you like to conduct your own private space-age experiment? The TubeSat Kit contains the hardware (mostly printed circuit boards) to build a real functioning miniaturized satellite. The price of the kit includes launching the fully assembled TubeSat into a polar Low Earth Orbit that will eventual decay.
If I had one of these kits I'd probably use it to repeat my amateur radio callsign (W3DTV) from orbit. Or maybe I'd just stalk the Black Knight satellite.
The PDF file I link below also mentions that a possible application for the TubeSat is space burial. Just remove the components and cremated ashes can be launched into space. I'd rather be cryogenically suspended but other steemhunters might like the idea of a space burial.
A lot more information about the TubeSat specifications and applications can be found in this PDF file:
