Mobile Ed is Going to Space!

Posted on Mon, Jul 27, 2015

Well, sort of...

We here at Mobile Ed recently had the opportunity to help fund an amazing Kickstarter project called LightSail! The project was created by science's very own Bill Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society, and was able to raise an astounding $1,241,615 thanks to 23,331 backers who pledged at least $1 towards the project. Those who pledged a dollar or more, including Mobile Ed Productions, will have their name sent to space on board the LightSail propelled CubeSat.

So what exactly is LightSail? Cue Bill:


We will be keeping you updates with the voyages of LightSail as its voyage progresses.
