We have developed a very low cost, open source, open access, mass space exploration system that anyone can use, and we need your help to send your very own Pocket Spacecraft, and thousands of others, on a first of its kind expedition to the moon.
Smaller than a CD and as thin as a piece of paper, some Pocket Spacecraft will be released into space to flutter to the ground to demonstrate landing on a planet with an atmosphere (the Earth). The CubeSat will then set off to the moon where, when it arrives many months later, the rest of the Pocket Spacecraft will be released, photographed and then land on the moon to complete the mission.
This audacious project captures the spirit of the BIS by turning imagination into reality with a radical new use of existing and new technologies.
By joining the growing numbers of BIS members that have already invested in Pocket Spacecraft you will have the option to work with the team to develop customised software for your spacecraft, or simply benefit from the expertise within the BIS. This BIS will also arrange regular meetings, workshops and events during the mission, benefiting from special access to the Pocket Spacecraft team.

Don’t miss out!
The most common phrase the BIS hear in recent shows regarding KickSat is ‘I wish I could still buy a Sprite satellite’. Don’t miss your chance to invest in this unique opportunity and land your own spacecraft on the moon – it is a KickStarter crowd funded project, and as such time for investment and involvement is strictly limited.
