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.

Return of the Constellations - A Case for the Internet

Connecting everyone is an important step in the right direction, of course, but internet connectivity is only a small part of the problem.

In a sense, there is a need to make this about the internet of people, rather than the internet of things.

NewSpace - Is this the Advent of the Second Space Age?

Over the past few years, it has been becoming more and more difficult to not notice a promising upsurge in activities in the commercial space industry. The developments in the space sector seem to be experiencing a fundamental shift from heavy dependence on government agencies towards a more independent private sector with quite a few dominant players. Case in point, Elon Musk and the ground-breaking technologies developed by SpaceX or Richard Branson and the space tourism efforts of Virgin Galactic, are the front-runners of what is already being touted as the "Second Space Age". These names, among other developments in the commercial sector of the space industry, fit under the umbrella term of "NewSpace."

SSP 2016
The ISU Space Study Program

The Space Study Program (SSP) of the International Space University, Strasbourg, is a month-long professional development course focussing on both technical and non-technical aspects of the space industry—something that is extremely essential in a field as interdisciplinary as space. If you’re looking for your next adventure that adds a lot of value to your student or professional career, SSP might be your answer.
