Boston will build upon other SpaceUp’s success, but for the Boston community. SpaceUp attendees love sharing, teaching and discussing the possibilities for space exploration.

When do I go to Space?

YOU go into Space on top of a rocket built with a SpaceUp. A SpaceUp’s starts auxiliary power units at T-5 minutes, 0 seconds. Session chats and tweets count down till booster ignition and liftoff. Then we say that it is “launched.”

The process used in launching YOU atop a SpaceUp is though a “un-conference.”
