Announcements


SpaceBoard is pleased to announce the launch of its new closed Beta campaign starting in May 2016, in which a small initial group of users will be invited to test the functionalities already available on the platform. In the coming months, as we add more and more features to the platform, we will invite an increasing number of users to join our beta campaign.


If you are interested in being a beta tester, and would like to get first-hand access to the platform’s features, please pre-register on SpaceBoard’s new front page by ticking the appropriate box. Pre-registration will enable you to stay up-to-date with the progress of the beta campaign and be informed of the official public release.


This latest beta round is a significant step in SpaceBoard’s efforts to bring the space industry an attractive, interactive and user-friendly platform for easy, noiseless professional interactions.

Open The Doors

Creating a platform like SpaceBoard is obviously nothing which can be done during one night. Believe us, we tried. But every time we thought we came closer to a state which can be presented publicly, we thought of a billion additional things which were just too cool to miss out. There are endless possibilities with such a platform and we found it difficult to decide which features to include already on Day 1. People we have been talking to, especially those to whom we shown a sneak peak of our website, have been positively urging us to finally launch our service. It is now with pronounced pleasure that after our first extensive, rewarding and joyful development period we can present SpaceBoard - THE SPACE NETWORK to you.

America's Gateway to Space: LC-39A

The iconic launch pads, Pads 39A and 39B at Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39, have been the starting point for many space flights including the first manned lunar landing. The original design for Launch Complex 39 called for three to five launch pads, designated 39A – 39E, that would have been spaced approximately 1.6 miles apart to protect them from damage if any mishaps occurred at an adjacent pad. Also part of Launch Complex 39 is the Vehicle Assembly Building, or VAB. Towering more than 500 feet, it can be seen easily from miles away. The Launch Control Center, or LCC, where all the launch controllers, support personnel, and equipment required to safely launch a vehicle from either of the launch pads is also a part of the large complex.

The Masters of Space

As a first in this venture of ours to help prospective space students make the best decisions about their future in the space industry, we bring to you European master’s courses, offered under European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme, that we’re sure will not only satisfy your thirst for space-tech knowledge, but also take you places, both literally and figuratively.

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.
