We're excited to announce new community features on SpaceBoard!

Below each transmission you will find three brand new icons which you can click on:

  1. Relay
    Let your personal network know about something noteworthy you read somewhere on SpaceBoard: simply click on the Relay icon below a transmission to relay it to your own Board, sharing it with everybody you have created a Link with!

  2. Comments
    Finally, you can comment on that transmission of your favourite lander's crash on Mars to tell the experts how it could have been saved. Simply click on the Comment icon below and let the geek talk begin!

  3. Starring
    Highlight transmissions you deem particularly interesting by clicking on the Star icon below. Let everyone know, that this is a must-read!


We hope you will enjoy these features as much as we do!



P.S.: Did you notice? Link URLs in your transmission are finally clickable! No more copy-pasting into your browser's address bar.

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 Launches its Closed Beta Campaign

Why Networking is Crucial During Space Studies

We cannot overemphasise how important networking is throughout one’s professional career. Like many students, you might not think of the fact that having a solid network before finishing your studies can dramatically improve your knowledge about the field you are interested in, as well as increase your chances of landing the right internships and future full-time jobs. If you are pursuing space studies, here are a few ideas on how to start building your network right now.

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.
