We are thrilled to announce the public release of SpaceBoard today, coinciding with the opening of the 67th International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2016) taking place this year in Guadalajara, Mexico.


Starting today, we invite space students, professionals and enthusiasts alike to register on SpaceBoard, create a profile and start connecting with other members of the space community. Be ready to interact, share, explore and much more!

If you have the chance to be in Mexico to attend IAC 2016, we also invite you to come and learn more about SpaceBoard during the presentations we are holding later this week:

  • - "SpaceBoard - Empowering Space Academia" on Wednesday 28, at 14:45 in Salon de Eventos 4.

  • - "SpaceBoard - The Professional Network of the Space Industry" on Thursday 29, at 14:45 in Salon de Eventos 2.

We can't wait to see you on SpaceBoard to build a stronger space community, together!

America's Gateway to Space: LC-39A

The iconic launch pads, Pads 39A and 39B at Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39, have been the starting point for many space flights including the first manned lunar landing. The original design for Launch Complex 39 called for three to five launch pads, designated 39A – 39E, that would have been spaced approximately 1.6 miles apart to protect them from damage if any mishaps occurred at an adjacent pad. Also part of Launch Complex 39 is the Vehicle Assembly Building, or VAB. Towering more than 500 feet, it can be seen easily from miles away. The Launch Control Center, or LCC, where all the launch controllers, support personnel, and equipment required to safely launch a vehicle from either of the launch pads is also a part of the large complex.

Hypercell: The Future of Space Architecture?

As humanity explores beyond our Earth we will need new systems to adapt to our life in space. We envisage colonies on the Moon and Mars and will need to plan new structures and what such buildings may look like. We may wish to easily transform satellites to respond to changes and build new structures in space that can easily adapt on command. Spaceoneers spoke with Pavlina Vardoulaki, who together with her team at the Design Research Laboratory at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London developed a self-assembly system that allows cubes to be reconstructed on demand. These “Hypercells” are dynamic and can respond to changes in their environment. Every cell can make its own decisions and has the ability to climb, roll and change its shape. A number of cells can come together without pre-defined instructions to form larger structures.

Reusability - Through NewSpace Lenses

This past year has seen the space sector take some remarkably huge leaps forward. The NewSpace companies, by their focused approach to it, have redefined reusability, and brought it within reach of our technology. If you missed all the excitement, or seem unsure what it is all about, now might be the time to get up to speed and catch an early glimpse of the future, because it’s here. What remains to be seen is where we can go from here- the universe is on our doorstep.

SpaceBoard's new Board creation capabilities
Your Organisation on SpaceBoard

If you are interested in showcasing your organisation on SpaceBoard you can now create a separate Board for it directly on the platform! You will be immediately assigned as its coordinator, allowing you to broadcast transmissions in the name of your organisation as well as edit all its information visible on SpaceBoard.
