Our Space Missions
We bring space closer to you
mu Space’s mission is to develop satellite communication technologies that will accelerate the adoption of the upcoming technology including delivering several payloads with a well-known American aerospace company; Blue Origin and participating in NASA SBIR/Tipping Point Solicitation Proposal was announced as one of the shortlisted candidates.
The combination of high altitude and low-gravity exposure provides an environment for a wide range of payloads ranging from basic and applied microgravity sciences to Earth and space science.
New Shepard launch vehicle
Blue Origin New Shepard Mission 9
The first of mu Space’s payload includes an assortment of scientific and medical items, several textile materials they plan to use on their future space suit and apparel, and other special articles for our community partners. The experiments contain,
- Various engineering experiment
- Symbolic unity of Thailand
- Team autograph
Blue Origin New Shepard Mission 11
mu Space’s payload was one of the 38 payloads including a variety of schools, universities, government agencies and private companies, were taken above the Karman line into space. This time mu Space sent over a thousand signatures to space by cooperating with various organizations such as MIT Media Lab, Thai engineering teams, scientists, artists and groups of students. This initiative is an initial step to make our dream of travelling to space a reality along with mu space experiment for the rocket prototype.
Blue Origin New Shepard Mission 12
Testing sensors in microgravity
- Compared to telemetry from New Shepard
- Accelerometer/gyroscope — MPU-6050
- Pressure/humidity/temperature — BME280
- GPS — NEO-6M
Water splitting experiment precursor
- Test the precipitation of P25 solution in microgravity
- In collaboration with Chula ISE
Blue Origin New Shepard Mission 13
There are 3 main modules for this payload which are categorized by the breakdown list below.
1. DNA experiment
2. DC – from TOT Public Company Limited
3. FGUX Experiments
3.1 FMX 1 – NASA projects; study fluid movement, glove humidity
3.2 GMCX – measure radiation in space
3.3 UFLMX – measure water balloon volume
Next space mission
“We envision a future where a thousand miles apart is just a stone’s throw away”. mu Space is currently striving to construct a medium-sized factory to be a base for developing its own satellite and space technology such as planning to establish a spaceship or the first small space vehicle in Thailand, including seeking to find new resources outside the earth to solve resource depletion and overpopulation problems. mu Space’s ultimate goal is to build future infrastructure for human colonies and factories on the Moon, and to make space tourism become reality.
