Guys. GUYS. Please support this. The $25 reward for a space selfie is well worth it!
Planetary Resources has teamed up with Virgin’s Sir Richard Branson, actors Seth Green, Brent Spiner and Rob Picardo, Bill Nye the Science Guy, futurist Jason Silva, and MIT astrophysicist Dr. Sara Seager to support the development of the ARKYD telescope. This will be a great educational tool for K-12 students and the public to explore space with sophisticated technology.
By contributing, you can get everything from a picture of you in space overlooking Earth to observation time using the telescope and a spot at the launch party. Additionally, there are school packages available that include observation time and lesson plans.
The telescope is expected to launch in 2015.
