Names in Space, for less than a cup of coffee
Figure 1 - The SpeakJet self contained, single chip voice and complex sound synthesizer.
The JURBAN GLXP team will be launching people’s names into space (on microchips like NASA) and transmitting them out to the universe via radio waves and audio waves, as our robot is in transit to the Moon and after it lands on the Moon. Just imagine your name lasting forever as it's tramsitted out to the stars. The audio wave transmissions will be used for educational purposes, to show that sound waves do not travel in the vacuum of space. As the saying goes, "In space, no one can hear you scream." Also with your permission will be showcasing the working hardware around the world, before it's sent into space. People in Africa, Europe, and Asia will know your name :)
You don't have to limit the data you put on our microchip to just your name. Each tickect you purchase entitles you to 40 characters of info, so add things like your birthday, major life accomplishments, or your love for your wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, or domestic partner.
- For each ticket, you earn the right to send 40 character into space.
- Please limit your first and last names to less than 20 characters each.
- There is no limit on the number of tickets you can purchase.
- Currently, names can only be spoken with English pronunciations. Download a demo here.
- Mission Failure Disclaimer: If the JURBAN robot should fail to make orbit and/or land on the Moon, we WILL get your name into space within one year of our failed mission using one of the following (all ready approved) methods (all ticket money is keep in escrow until launch):
- ArduSat (Arduino – satellite) The first open platform satellite allowing the general public to design and run their own space-based applications, games & experiments, and steer onboard cameras to take pictures on-demand.
- Ashes to Orbit - Utilizing a commercial launch vehicle (rocket), the Ashes to Orbit program packages small science tokens, novelties, and loved ones’ ashes together in space delivery modules. To date, they have had three successful launches.
- Kick Sat - Designed by an Aerospace Engineer PhD at Cornell University, KickSat launches microchips called “Sprites” into low-altitude Earth orbits.
