(Interorbital) - Micro-Philanthropists Launch Private-Sector Space Program for $1

Through a unique funding concept, and for the first time in history, citizens of the Earth will have a chance to participate in a private-sector satellite launch—for as little as $1, or 1 Euro.

Interorbital Systems (IOS), an American rocket manufacturer and launch provider headquartered in Mojave, California, has entered into a joint venture with European philanthropic organization Vision One www.visionone.tv to participate in the launch of a satellite, ‘Eyes in Space’ (EIS-Sat). From their studios in Luebeck, Germany, filmmaker/producers Bruce Jessop and Lars Kohlsaat ---Vision One’s co-founders---have tapped Interorbital Systems to launch a private-sector $1.2 million satellite mission, as well as a follow-on $35 million lunar photographic mission.

The selection of Interorbital by Vision One has sent waves of excitement through the commercial spacelaunch business community. The initial satellite launch will be flown on IOS’ new orbital rocket, the Sea Star TSAAHTO (Two-Stage-And-A-Half-To-Orbit). The rocket will also carry into space an electronic list containing all the names of those who helped make the launch possible.

“We at Vision One feel that this type of project and technology developed by IOS is a ‘must support.’ This is an affordable type of space access with tremendous potential for humanity. It’s an international, independent effort by individuals promoting human ingenuity and creativity, and working outside the usual government/military space agencies,â€
