C3Space at the 36C3

The C3Space Assembly is intended as place to hang out (and to show of projects) for everyone interested in space exploration, space travel, satellites, cubesats, satellite tracking, diy astronomy, amateur rocketry ... you name it. The goal is to bring all the different people hacking on space topics in our community in one place, explore existing projects and come up with new ideas to hack where no congress has hacked before.

Like last year we teamed up with the Libre Space Foundation to create an awesome assembly for all things space related.

Please be aware, that we aim to provide a safe environment for all galactic life forms (although we are only able to provide an oxygen atmosphere). We come in peace!

Location: Assembly, J5, Exhibition Hall 2, Level 0
