#### Full News ####
We, (a DGLR student team at the University of Stuttgart) are proud in bringing back the NASA Space Applications Challenge (Space Apps) to Stuttgart[0].
This year the goal is have a bigger, better event as well as a small head-start to give us a better chance at winning one of the awards. And we are inviting you to become a part of it!

The Space Apps Hackaton event will be held during 11.-12. April, we will open the doors at 13:00 o'clock on Saturday and you can always come and join during the full weekend. For early birds, we will already open the location Friday, 10. April at 20:00 o'clock for a warm-up and mingling phase in our location at Stuttgart hackerspace shackspace.

There will be several challenges and projects provided by NASA for you to work on. Just visit and select one.
The team is working on the Distributed Ground Station Network[1] for tracking small satellites and its proof-of-concept project BigWhoop, a global sensor grid for radio spectrum monitoring with software defined radio. You can either join the team or work on any of the other projects.

We already hosted Space Apps in Stuttgart's creative hackerspace shackspace in 2012 and it was a great event for working on space projects within an interdisciplinary team as well as for networking and founding a start-up.
So feel invited to be part of this great space event and the global space community!

For more information feel free to contact us.
There will be food ordering and a free box of Club Mate Cola! And we will also have free "DVB-T sticks" as give-aways, because these will be our sensors!.
You can even join the team from abroad, or you just attend one of the many other Space Apps locations[0]!

Just come and hack space!

Google Summer of Code 2015 is on!
The Google Summer of Code 2015 started and organization applied until today. So if you are a student and want to code during summer time for open-source projects, have a look on for organizations you would like to work for.

Constellation had been part in 2013 and 2014 and it rocked! So we also applied for this year and you can find our projects on our ideas page.

Stay tuned for more news!

Constellation is back online!
Good news everyone, we're finally back online!
We are sorry to have you experiencing a longer than intended server down-time. Due to the new Comet Trails app, we generated more than expected results, which caused some trouble with our system. So thank you very much for helping this great application and also benchmarking our server.
We already tackled the main problems, but we still leave the server under monitoring. So please be patient with us, if the server is not yet running as it used to. By the way, it is still the same server we started with in 2011 plus some new storage. He served us well, but if you like us to have a new and reliable one, please be so kind and donate on our donation page.

We will keep you informed here or on our "emergency channels". And we will also have some other good news coming up.

So, thank you for your patience again!

Best regards,

TYCHO paper now published in Acta Astronautica! [online / Volume 108]
So honored!
My TYCHO paper is now published in Acta Astronautica! I did that as my Diploma Thesis at the Institute of Space Systems at the University of Stuttgart and the paper was selected for Acta Astronautica during the International Astronautical Congress 2013 in Beijing.

It's a concept study about a communication relays satellite in Earth-Moon Libration point (EML-4) as a permanent infrastructure. So something similar Elon Musk will need for his SpaceX and Google "space internet" ;)

You can get it for free until March 5, 2015 -> or here Volume 108, March–April 2015, Pages 156–170
