First Crowdfunded Space Telescope Is One Of The Most Successful Kickstarter Projects Ever
By Lacey Henry
World’s first public space telescope project has received more than $1.5 million in funding, making it one of the top 25 campaigns in Kickstarter history.
Last month, asteroid mining company Planetary Resources launched a Kickstarter campaign to put the world’s first public space telescope, ARKYD, into orbit. By June 30, the 33-day campaign had far surpassed its $1 million dollar goal: 17,600 backers pledged a total of $1,505,366, making ARKYD the most successful crowdfunding effort for a space project and one of the top 25 most successful campaigns in Kickstarter history.
