A Kickerstarter project that puts a small cube sat into orbit. It doesn't do much, but might be a lot of fun for people who want to sponsor something cool - it has a transponder to relay your tweets and has a camera that lets you take a photo. At the end of the mission a ten foot balloon is inflated to (a) make the craft visible from the ground just before dawn and after dusk and to increase the atmospheric drag to the point where it quickly de-orbits to keep space tiddy.
This might really excite a kid. Also fun for the developers.
