Our mission is to support space research by launching the first billboard into space ever.

What we want to fund

On Tuesday the 18th of April 2017, the United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket launched the Orbital ATK Cygnus cargo ship on the OA-7 mission to the International Space Station, including our space billboard!

A big thank you to all our sponsors, we could not have done this without you!

This is what the billboard looks like on board of the Ursa Maior CubeSat of the university of La Sapienza in Rome (Italy). Read more about it in this blog post!

And this is what the billboard looks like on board of the SNUSAT-1 CubeSat of the university of Seoul (South Korea).

Both satellites are currently scheduled to be launched in Q4 of 2016. We'll keep you posted about the exact date once it's decided!

SpaceBillboard allows us to literally send messages around the world. For us it is a great way to inspire people about space research and the many benefits it brings. With Earth Day coming up, we want to use this privilege to help non-profit organizations share their message with the world!

From the 1st of April until the 22nd, all of you could let us know which good cause deserves your support, and you did that splendidly! In total, we received 759 nominations and each of them showed so much passion and enthusiasm that it was hard to make our final choice. Therefore we decided to let fate decide and pick three random causes at random, taking into account the number of votes they received.

And the three good causes who's message we will take along for free are:

Thank you all for the great support and good luck with your good causes!

SpaceBillboard is the initiative of
three PhD researchers in engineering
of the University of Leuven (Belgium).

Of course, this project is not about us, but about
all the great people that help us make it reality!

The next step

It has been a while since you’ve all heard from us, but we have been working hard! The last months we have been busy behind the scenes producing the billboard and planning the launch.

As you all know, our original plan was to launch the billboard on board of the Belgian SIMBA CubeSat that is being developed at our university in Leuven, Belgium. Although SpaceBillboard will still support this satellite, our plans have changed due to unforeseen complications and we will not launch the billboard on board of SIMBA.
