Citizens in Space Project

TSG is proud to be offering a number of resources for Citizens in Space project participants. Citizens in Space is a project administered by the US Rocket Academy that offers free payload slots on private suborbital spacecraft for citizen science experiments. Check out CitizensInSpace.org, or send your letter of intent to participate to experiments@rocketacademy.org and get the process started for your university, K-12, or maker group started on real science for a real space mission.


Planning Guides:

Getting Started / Dev Kit - This document explains how to get started with a Citizens in Space experiment, and basic usage of the dev kit.

Payload Design and Manufacturing (PDM) - Click to download a PDF that describes the payloads and provides some initial guidance for how to build.

Payload Testing and Qualification (PTQ) - This document explains the testing and qualification processes designed to verify that your experiment is safe to fly.


Microgravity Developers' Kit:

These printable, modular pieces are designed to work with the most popular components in the hacker/maker market. Print your selected parts, fasten them together, and you've got a payload nearly ready to go. No printer or lacking hardware expertise? Contact info@terransciencesgroup.com and we'll give advice and make parts/assemblies at cost.

Check back often- new parts and datasheets are added all the time. Use the info@terransciencesgroup email to request a specific part.
