A Space Hobby in the Spotlight


Space collectibles and memorabilia: The collecting of space related materials has grown into one of the most of all popular space hobbies. People collect all sorts of things. Examples include astronaut / cosmonaut autographs, space stamps, mission patches, space toys, artifacts that have flown in space, and even Moon dust. Collecting meteorites is a whole industry into itself. There are also the related pursuits of space art, music. and movie collecting.

Space collecting can provide a marvelous way to learn about a particular type of collectible but also about history and politics, culture, and technology. Start your space collection today.

SuitSat
SuitSat - a satellite from a spacesuit

A surplus Russian Orlan spacesuit will become one of the strangest amateur satellites ever put into orbit. The suit has been packed with radio transmission gear and will be deployed (i.e. thrown overboard) by an ISS crewmember during an EVA early next year. Amateur radio enthusiasts and students around the world will pick up its radio signals and slow-scan TV transmission as long as its batteries hold out. More about the project at: SuitSat at ARISS * SuitSat at AMSAT * This is SuitSAat-1 RS0RS!!

More about amateur space radio activities in Space Radio section and info on amateur and student satellites can be found in Satellite Building .
