Startups in Space

BY LUCAS BREMOND
@ VOL 127 ON JUL 29, 2015

"Nowadays we have new tech. Everybody has an iPhone and actually these are more powerful than any of the satellites now in space. And thats the idea. We are basically using them to produce space stuff that is way more powerful and much less expensive."

In Startups in Space from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 127, spacecraft developer at Axelspace in Tokyo, Lucas Bremond catches us up on the accomplishments of the space programs of past and present, reminding us that many of historical cosmic triumphs were achieved with less computing power then that of our smartphones. He then turns our imaginations to the future, proposing a new age of space exploration where the playing field has been levelled, the barrier of entry lowered, an exciting new era of new inexpensive tech in space, which we can all potentially participate, and for the benefit of all.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, August 21st, 2015.
