We don't need anything fancy. We don't need awesome sensors and crazy measurement devices.
All we really need Is a modded cellphone with a decent battery life and a means of sending data back. Although a simple balancing mechanism, would make for a better video.

Our goal is simply:
To see if we can
To see if we can get away with it.
Cause as much havoc in the process.
simple

We have many resources on 4chan that we can pool from.
Like-minded people who can help us do the impossible. We have the numbers, we have the intelligence, we have the combined knowledge to make this happen. We will obtain the impossible or send the media into a panic trying!

Why the fuck not? There is a good chance they will shut down the threads before we even get to fire the rocket. But by that time we'll have already caused enough havoc to laugh at the headlines.
But who knows, what if we do get away with it?
Why the fuck shouldn't we attempt this clearly insane idea?

Share any thoughts or ideas.
Yes, I am aware this insane lul. However, it is not so insane to say we can't do it.

[This update albeit rushed, I just wanted to give us some kind starting point. While I continue to look through the original thread and research on my own. Feel free to use this, or change the formatting anyway you see fit]

The Starting point:
>Step 1. For right now our first goal should be creating a more secure webpage for sharing ideas and discussing things which are borderline illegal. If not out right illegal.
>Darkweb would be a good platform for this.

Some of things we'll need but not limited to:
>1. A safe platform to work on and communicate with each other.
>2. A method of labeling anonymous people as (newfriend, trusted, mathematician, physicist, chemist, metal worker, supplier, ect.)
>3. An open chat, a trusted chat, and team chats. This is for when we later are more structured and have groups of people working on specific aspects of the project.
>Chan boards aren't out of the question if that's what everyone wants.
>4. A way of saving our work/documents while restricting access based on aforementioned labels.

Note: If there is any security conscious people, people with a deep understanding of anonymity, or deep-webdesign. Your input is much needed on this step. We need to make sure the safety of everyone involved is at our upmost priority.

[Lastly, please avoid doing anything that could compromise your identity while we get this site up.]

I saw this thread on /pol/, has someone figured out since whether it is even practical to build a rocket capable of sending stuff to orbit?
>>
>>62409428
it's not practical.
the best you can do is a HAB.
the best grassroots space programs take years and you're looking at suborbital rockets at best
>>
WHAT ABOUT THE LOGO?!??
You won't get buy-in without a snazzy logo.

But seriously what are you aiming to achieve? Is it meant to achieve low orbit and provide comms or surveillance or is it one of those high school let's send a camera up to the edge of space tings

no need for darkweb

it's not like /g/ could build a real multi stage rocket anyway
but yeah just put some meme stickers on an android phone and develop an app for whatever you want to use it for
and start a fundraiser for the launch costs
and there you have it, /g/ space program

They can't bring it down if it's not in US territory. There's talk of bongs launching it from Sealand. If it's launched from the US, it has to be less than 1.5 kg and is launched ~450 meters away from civilization to not require FAA permits.

Balloon wont go high enough for orbit.

If you're using a balloon you need a parachute system so someone doesn't have a 2kg box smack them on the head at 200km/h
>>
I'll make the logo
>>
>>62427148
You mean doesn't go fast enough for orbit. Even if a balloon somehow crosses the karman line it still isn't orbiting
>>
>>62427148
that's why there's an SSTV downlink, at least at this time we don't plan on recovering the device.
>>62427097
why would we want a fisheye lens? for the meme?
>>
>>62427237
The parachute shouldn't be there for recovery more so you don't injure anyone. No one would care if 4chan sends some shit into space they will care if said payload injures someone
>>
>>62427272
So no parachute?
>>
>>62427326
kek

Needs a rocket though we want it in orbit
>>
>>62427272
Or just launch it from the coast with prevailing winds carrying it over water. That way it can double as a submersible until the battery dies.

fuck discord

should:
maintain an orbit which could be maintained for a minimum of 3 months (or have a balloon which can self regulate height for that long)
broadcast /pol/ memes
tell the world how to listen in on memes

wait for the inevitable shitshow of lefties demanding it be shot down
>>
>>62427715
Yeah of course i'd love to but it's just really hard to do. launching stuff into orbit isn't as easy as dropping helium balloons. Also as some anon on /pol/ said, if there were cheaper ways to send stuff into orbit than 90 million dollars rockets, NASA and ESA would do it

What if we put a rocket on a ballon then launch it when we break the atomsphere
>>
Rocket motors and enough helium balloons should do it, the rocket motors activate when we're above the atmosphere or we could use ion motors, a /sci/ person will work that out
>>
>>62427780
a cubesat is only about $50k to get into orbit and generally have a longevity between a week and a year and a cubesat is all you need
>>
>>62427921
They will never allow a cubesat broadcasting nazi memes. Also our goal is to take a picture of the earth with pepe on a selfie stick.
Post your suggestions:
https://etherpad.net/p/4chanSpace
>>
>>62427921
This is because the company launching cubesats launches multiple at once with efficient launch vehicles, the smallest rockets capable of entering orbit weigh in on around 10 tons so that enough should give some indication that a few fools on a mongolian knitting forum wont put it together, especially if they are /pol/fags

This is dumb as shit. It will generate like a single article on the internet and nobody is going to be upset by it, they are going to see it as a general waste of time and money.

OP, the idea guy, is going to sit in his basement keking his ass off for a say or 2 at it but literally nobody else is going to give a shit.

Go big or go home. Build a rocket, put something actually in space, to distinguish the project from some other dumb youtuber video, and make it something that will actually be remembered.

And ffs leave the /pol/ circle jerk out of it. The dry edgy memes have run their course, and your target audience of stupid SJWs is like only a couple thousand people. Actually attract the worlds attention with something creative
>>
>>62423475
When these don't attract cancer who love this place for the epic 4chan, and the epic raids, and the epic lulz from faggots on reddit or twitter is when fun can happen again.
