    1. 1. DO-IT-YOURSELF: SPACE HOW YOU CAN BUILD THINGS THAT CAN FLY IN SPACE
    2. 2. LOOK ME UP @motorbikematt
    3. 3. Where I Work  Exploration Solutions, Inc.  Sub-contractor at NASA Ames Research Center
    4. 4. What I Do  Exploration Solutions, Inc.  Work for Office of the Chief Technologist Emerging Space Technology Office Participatory Exploration / Planetary Analogs Education Outreach / Visual Social Media I DO NOT REPRESENT NASA…. …but I can tell you some personal stories!
    5. 5.  A History of Hacking  Government’s Role  What is happening now?  What you can do soon  A few other things… Doing It Yourself
    6. 6. THIS IS NOT A NEW PHENOMENON! Participatory Exploration = A type of Hacking? Hackers= Tinkers = Makers Just other kinds of explorers Doing It Yourself
    7. 7. Albert Santos - Dumont over Wright Brothers here at Tempelhof Field Did it Themselves: Aircraft
    8. 8.  1914 WWI Starts  1915 National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics UK beat us to it in 1909  1918 WWI ends… …Barnstorming Begins! Hacked Surplus Curtiss Jenny JN-4  1926 Air Commerce Act Regulation: Safety & Licensing Elsewhere… Did it Themselves: Aircraft
    9. 9.  1920 Robert Goddard “A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes” 1926 1st liquid fueled rocket launches  1923 Hermann Oberth “The Rocket into Planetary Space” But these guys were not the first hackers trying to explore space…. Did it Themselves: Space

    13. 13. Government Space Royal Greenwich Observatory Leiden Paris Berlin
    14. 14.  Sad Facts  Many of the ancient observatories were built to gain tactical advantage during wartime  Airplane development dramatically accelerated due to the World War I effort.  As we all know, World War II & the Cold War were drivers of spacecraft development as well. Big Brother Does It For You
