Crowdfunded Telescope Lets The Public Explore Space
Take a photograph of yourself in space or try to find an incoming asteroid using this public project.
ARKYD is an orbiting space telescope that can be controlled by the public – its primary aim is to make space exploration accessible to anyone who is interested.
Technology that would normally cost tens of millions of dollars can now be sourced publicly and donated to local universities, non-profits and other groups in the community. Giving these kinds of groups and individuals access to technology that would normally be inaccessible opens up the possibility of discoveries happening outside of the companies who receive huge government funding.
