Proposal for civilian space research ¶
Thingiverse has a couple of patterns for printing femtosatellites. Search pocketcube.
It costs 1000 dollars or thereabouts to sent a femtosatellite to the international space station.
Research materials analysis of the effects of space weather on different materials in the pocket cube frame. The University of Calgary is busy with some of this.
Simple experiment - send one half of two pieces of material into space. Compare differences when it returns. Your ability to do this depends on your resources. A simple microscope or magnifying glass and notepad is basic. Camera photos and up to various analyzing items, depending on your contacts or wallet.
