making space together

We are, a small team of space makers solving space problems together with Small Satellite Student Society University of Stuttgart (KSat e.V.) and the ep2lab of Charles III University of Madrid. In 2011, we started as an independent student group at the University of Stuttgart to provide massive computing power with our distributed computting platform Constellation to everyone needing it for space simulations. Over time, we attracted international young professionals of the space industry and the local maker community and thus becoming a full fletched and indipendent citizen science project.

We are a community project of several Projects working of different Teams in Stuttgart and globally. Together with the Small Satellite Student Society University of Stuttgart (KSat e.V.) , the Distributed Ground Station Network Team, we are working on the SOURCE CubeSat mission and while it is coasting in near space, we try tracking it and other cubesats faster than US NORAD. With the Comet Trails software, we are simulating cometary dust particles for the IMEX project of the European Space Agency (ESA).

We are a small organization but having impact within the global space community and helping realizing space exploration by creativity and open access. We are open for everybody interested in space for the betterment of everybody. Feel kindly invited to join our ZULIP chat and ask us everything about space!
