Using a low Earth orbit Satellite to research the Extraterrestrial UAP/UFO phenomenon.
#space #ufo #uap #extraterrestrial #alien

First, what our Sat is capable of:

Electromagnetic Radiation: we have an electro-magnetometer, capable of detecting variations in electromagnetic radiation.

Ionized radiation: we have a scintillation counter, that enables us to measure the various radiation in our satellites environment. This is significant as it enables us to detect high energy particles, radiation, and other phenomenon.

Cameras: we will use two cameras with parabolic lenses, giving us a clear 360 degree view around our satellite.
Our instruments will allow us to scientifically verify visual anomalies with correlated radiation. This adds to the burden of proof required for extra-ordinary claims.

We have already raised $30,000 USD previously, and this has paid for the building of our CubeSat and our Launch
Data will cost $3000+ / month, and we will be in orbit up to three months. This is why we are raising funds. Anything raised above our goal will go towards future launches, and this may turn into a yearly mission.

We need another $8000 USD Minimum for the 3 month data costs of our CubeSat.

Now, on disclosure:

For the past 70 years, the topic of extraterrestrial intelligent beings and UFO's has been controversial, if not ridiculed. Despite many sightings and events, government, military and media have made a strong attempt to discredit the idea of extraterrestrial "aliens". And in the face of their apparent "disbelief" of the topic, the same military and governments have spent huge amounts of money secretly studying these "ridiculous" UFO's and aliens. Thanks to freedom of information, and the actions of many with first hand experience, thousands of documents, witness testimony and data have surfaced, making the ridicule posed on ufology by media and governments seem staged and forced, with a very secret intent.

To name a few reasons why this topic is important, and why it must be subjected to rigorous scientific study:

1) Countries are beginning to release highly classified documents proving their governments interest in aliens and UFO's.

2) Hundreds of highly credible witnesses have come forward with testimony that at least some UFO's are verifiable alien technology. These witnesses

include a former Canadian Defense Minister, numerous astronauts, high ranking US military officials, pilots, ... Well, I could go on and on, but instead

I will provide a few links for those of you interested in learning more:

What our project aims to do, is to use a low orbit satellite, controlled by us individuals, to study potential objects that emit high energy radiation.

Maybe we'll get data readings and pictures of solar-flare caused auroras. Maybe we'll capture images of some very interesting meteors. And maybe we'll actually capture a verifiable craft. All we can do is try, and by doing this our way, we can open-source the data to you, the individuals.

Name (get your name written on the CubeSat): $25
Data (real-time data - visual / radiation): $100
Data (get login benefits and real time data): $500
Join the Team (sit with us and build the CubeSat): $1000
