    Doctor Who  Fans Fund Campaign to Send TARDIS to

    2013 is the 50th anniversary of DOCTOR WHO. A group of Doctor Who fans have put together a successful Kickstarter project to send a TARDIS-shaped satellite into Earth’s orbit. Good idea! The TARDIS satellite has already been built and will be equipped with a GoPro Hero 3 so that it can capture the view from above the world. The Kickstarter campaign has about one more day to go, but it has already surpassed its funding goal of $33,000. The launch is being planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, which is on November 23, 2013.
    "The TARDIS is built. That's right. We've completed the satellite. The satellite is constructed from really light weight aluminum (because weight is a huge issue) and it is a scaled-down version of the actual TARDIS. Our satellite is only about 1 foot tall - because again, weight is a major factor. However, the light on top functions (powered by solar cells in the windows.) And that means that when we put this thing in space, there will be a TARDIS with a blinking light orbiting the Earth. SWEET!
    But then we thought, what if we put some other stuff inside? So, we did. There is a camera, a GoPro Hero 3, regularly recharged by the solar panels, which will take photos of the Earth from orbit. It's not the Hubble or a spy telescope, but it should give us some pretty sweet pics. A magnetic, passive attitude control system is in place which will keep the TARDIS's camera pointing toward the planet

    "There is fear in that we are all different from one another, but that is also the gateway to self-consciousness.
    Self-consciousness was once whole, but in the modern trend where all things whole get broken down,it too is about to get deconstructed.
    For that reason, people now seek to reconstruct their consciousness by extending it onto others.
    Through this process of extension, we have learned to unravel things down to their basic elements.
    We are succeeding at digging up new knowledge of what it is we all share.
    This knowledge that bonds different people together seems to appear suddenly,but in reality it is already coded into our planet, our universe.
    We construct things from the most basic building blocks.
    What are we to discover from this process?
    To find the answer, we must continue to turn our gaze toward those around us. "
