Sponsor SkyCube

Use this page to sponsor SkyCube - and to own a part of the mission.

Your sponsorship will help us cover the remaining launch cost, and offset additional development and operational expenses incurred since 2012. As we are a for-profit company, SkyCube sponsorships are not tax-deductible. However, you're still supporting a great cause - and you're getting some very cool stuff from us in return! For a taste of the rewards, read on.

If you have a smartphone, check out our Satellite Safari app for iOS and Android! It's the official app of the SkyCube mission, and a 3D tour guide to the thousands of spacecraft orbiting our planet right now.

When SkyCube launches, you'll be able to use Satellite Safari to send messages and request images from the satellite, too! For now, you can use this web page to sponsor part of the mission, and reserve your allocation of broadcasts and pictures from orbit.


IMPORTANT: We use PayPal for sponsorship payment processing. Your PayPal email address is your sponsor ID. We save your allocation of messages and images from the satellite under this email address in our database. Your PayPal receipt is your sponsorship order confirmation. Please keep it safe!

We use USPS priority or express mail to ship physical goods (T-shirts, model rockets, etc). Sponsors in the United States, please allow up to one week for Priority Mail delivery, or two days for Express Mail delivery. Sponsors outside the United States, please allow up to four weeks for Priority Mail delivery, or two weeks for Express Mail delivery. For international deliveries, customs processing time may add an additional delay.
