Interorbital Systems (IOS) is now selling personal satellites called TubeSats, and at just $8,000 they flying off shelves.
The TubeSat is a bare bones satellite that you assemble yourself, but don’t worry they launch it into outer space for you. Unfortunately, they’re put into a self-decaying orbit so you’re literally burning through your money.
On the upside, you can do whatever you want with 0.2 kg (0.4 lbs.) of free cargo space. In addition to spy stuff, Interorbital suggests uses like space art, space advertising, and even space burial. Anyone know how much a death ray weighs?
