We are pleased to announce that from now on organisations have the possibility to have one or several official coordinators for their Board on the platform. Coordinators will be able to post updates on behalf of the organisation and directly interact with the community. They will also be able to edit the organisation information.


Coordinated Boards will be marked as official organisations. Individual users will be able to identify such organisations by the green checkmark next to their name on the platform.


In order to broadcast a transmission as an organisation, coordinators should visit the Community Board and select their organisation in the Broadcast as dropdown menu now available in the Broadcast transmission module.




To edit information, coordinators should click on the edit gear icon at the top right of the Information module on the Organisation Board.



We invite registered individual users who would like to become coordinator of an existing Organisation Board to inform us by simply clicking the Board Claim button.



We also invite organisations to directly contact us at contact@spaceboard.eu to assign coordinators to their Board. Please note that in order to become an organisation official coordinator, it is necessary to have an account on SpaceBoard as well as an organisation email address.

What You Will Read on SpaceBoard Radar

SpaceBoard is on a mission to reinvent the way individuals and organisations from the space industry interact. We are convinced that the development of a professional network built from the ground up to serve all space industry players will have the ability to bring our global community closer together on one powerful online environment. Today, marking another step forward towards the platform’s public release, we introduce Radar, a new outreach channel to provide quality articles reflecting SpaceBoard's take on various space topics.

Go For Space Studies, You Won't Regret It

Let's start with a disclaimer. Going for space studies is NOT about becoming an astronaut or going to Mars. That being said, going for space studies IS about rockets, satellites, the Sun, stars, planets, Mars rovers, microgravity and a whole bunch of very exciting stuff. So, if you are enthusiastic about science and technology, and currently considering your next academic move, this article is just for 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.
