Tiny satellites, the size of a Rubik's Cube or smaller, are democratizing space. Universities, small businesses -- even high schools and makerspaces -- design so-called CubeSats and PocketQubes, getting them into orbit by hitching rides or via "tiny" rockets. These tiny satellites predict floods, measure climate change, conduct biological experiments, and venture to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Learn about what it takes to make a tiny satellite and send it spinning around our earth hundreds of miles over our heads for 25 years! After which they "deorbit" and burn up so as to not contribute to space debris. Maybe our AltspaceVR community should have its own satellite! Wouldn't it be cool to co-own an actual frickn' satellite? Maybe this is the meetup in social VR to kickstart an audacious idea! What might an ASVR satellite actually do? (There are connections between tiny satellites and VR...) Put on your thinking hat, bring a box to think outside, and prepare to brainstorm... hundreds of miles above the clouds.
