I can't remember how I stumbled across BuyThisSatellite.org, but I'm glad I did. I've been a science fiction fan for (literally) as long as I can remember, and while I doubt I'll ever make orbit myself, there's something gosh-darned cool about actually buying a chunk of an actual orbiting satellite. Their web site says it best:
The owner of the world's most capable communication satellite just went bankrupt.
We're fundraising to buy it.
So we can move it.
To connect millions of people who will turn access into opportunity.
Please help---after all, how many things do you know that can bring BoingBoing, Al Jazeera, and Popular Science together?
