In 2007, a small group of people began an intentional, collaborative experiment in open, transparent, and direct communication about your space program. Our goal was to enable your direct participation in exploring and contributing to NASA’s mission.

Many of us have since begun new adventures. This site will remain as an archive of the accomplishments of the openNASA experiment.

It was day #1 of the [International Space Apps Challenge][] when I met [Jon Spooner][], the director of Human Space Flight Operations at the [Unlimited Space Agency][]. His goal: hack his way into space. I interviewed [Jon Spooner][] about his plans as well as Todd Khozein from the operations team at [SecondMuse][], about his impressions on the mission.

In preparation for his flight, Jon interviewed [Dr. Alex Kumar][] (research medical doctor) from the European Space Agency, [Don Thomas][] from NASA, [Tim Peake][] (Astronaut) from European Space Agency, [Loredana Bessone][] (Astronaut instructor) from the European Space Agency, [Dr. Andy Newsam][] (Astrophysicist) from Liverpool John Moores University, and [Dr. Gail Iles][] (a condensed matter physicist and astronaut instructor) at the European Space Agency.
