what a fag

and yet you wish to replace google earth with one homemade satellite

why are you trying to shut him down.

Of course it will be a lot shittier than Google Earth but it would still be neat.

If I actually go through with this, it would be a good idea for people to identify me in the threads I make. Besides, the name is just anonymous with "sat" as a prefix.

Even one satellite may prove to be enough. If it is geostationary, then it is fine, but the way I want it, it needs to be moving or it will crash into earth. I could have it moving around the earth so I can get great pictures of antarctica and the north pole which tend to be shit on google earth for some reason.

>>8021
I could put other devices onto it as well, and I am going to have multiple hard drives to see how they fare in space.

I am triggered by your narcissism.
You need at least three for triangulation, the hard drives will waste power that you don't have on the satlilite.
If it was me I would at least make 24 small satellites in geostationary orbit. They will run on seL4 and transmit information to one centeral server to store the images.

>hard drives
Radiation might not cause bit flips down here but that's only because earth's magnetosphere shields us, on a satellite they are common enough that every thing NASA (and most likely other agencies) sends up is radiation hardened. Which in the context of CPUs means everything is done twice since radiation shielding isn't feasible.
>great pictures
Google Earth's pictures of Antarctica and the North Pole are shit because less than 1% of the population lives there. Your best option for satellite imagery is probably NASA's High-res imagery. (Bing and Mapbox apparently take "creative liberties" when it comes to the northern ice cap.)

t. Kid who's going to attach a raspberry pi and a go pro to a helium balloon and thinks it will be an alternative to Google Earth
