my DIY (and UNIQUE in the world) NewSpaceAgency Answered

.

I've found this website on the WePC community (where I'll post soon some ideas about netbooks) then, I've registered my account here (and this is my first thread/post) to talk about some ideas

my first job was in the electronic field (some decades ago...) but now I haven't enough experience to design electronic circuits (despite I've many ideas of new electronic "things" that I hope to develop someday)

I've written several articles about Space on my ghostNASA blog and other articles about Computers, Space and Energy on my personal website

but my #1 project/goal/effort actually IS my DIY but TRUE (and absolutely NOT just "virtual", web-based, Second Life like) NewSpaceAgency

unfortunately, I haven't the funds other new.space piooners (Elon Musk, Robert Bigelow, Burt Rutan, Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, Paul Allen, John Carmack, etc.) have... so, to start up my new.space company, I've decided to search a few Sponsors that buy a (now LIFETIME) advertising space on my NewSpaceAgency website home page

in other words, I'm trying to start my new.space company the same way other (now big) electronic and computer companies (like Apple and HP) have done decades ago!

I'm aware it's not easy... but I'll try, and try, and try, and try again, until I'll reach my goal !

and, the day I'll succeed, my NewSpaceAgency will be the FIRST "garage-made", "DIY", "ads-funded" Space Company of the story!

and, of course, also Instructables is welcome as Sponsor of my NewSpaceAgency ... :)

I like your idea, but seriously, you think NASA would ever let you near space? I don't see why you can't as long as you don't hurt anyone. I mean, it's not like NASA owns space....( at least they think they do). pm me. My friend and I are spending 40min+ per week day talking about how to get to mars. If your interested.

Did you see astronaut farmer? Of course NASA won't let you go to space.

Movies are not a reliable source of sound legal advice.

There is absolutely no reason to stop a Maker getting into space.

Of course I know that I was being sarcastic!
Anyways thanks for the reply.
There is probably some hoops to jump thorough to get clearance to send something to space, if you didn't have to get clearance you might hit a jet airplane or knock a satellite out of orbit.

Do you know what your Agency will actually do? Have you some ideas for revenue?

People pay millions to have their cremated remains (ashes) fired into space. That's a lucrative business opportunity.

I think that supports other business.
