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.

HE Space Operations On Board

In a significant development this spring, HE Space Operations, a major player in the European space sector, has extended a hand to SpaceBoard, providing us with valuable support and expertise.

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.

Welcome Back, Baby

"Welcome back, baby!" - Those were Elon Musk's words after the successful landing of the first stage of their Falcon 9 rocket. But what do these harmless sounding words really mean? Was there an actual human baby on board the rocket?
