I have been busy with this huge project in the past year or so and itching to share details but due to confidentiality agreements with our partners SpaceX, NASA and CSA I was not able to share till now. Age of Valor is now officially a recognized private space agency and we are now officially launched. A dedicated site has been made which has details on some of our missions and experiments:

We launched our first experimental satellite earlier with help of SpaceX and their Falcon 9 rocket and it can be tracked here:

This project started off as a crazy idea I had in mind where a fleet of geostationary satellites could act as a direct link from two places on the Earth with as few hops as possible to make the ping on the shard good from anywhere. Idea is for it to be connected to the Hyperboria network as well ( https://hyperboria.net/ ) which is basically a darknet and a way to communicate without NSA surveillance. It was a running joke for a while till I actually looked deeper into what would be involved. This is not a new concept, but the idea of a small org like us doing it would never have even been a thought before. After doing research I realized it's actually not that far fetched to get stuff into space because of private space industry.

Been playing around a lot with electronics as a hobby in the past year and I worked closely with NASA, SpaceX and CSA to get our satellite built and off the ground and we have more planned as this was mostly just to test the waters. I have been monitoring it for a while now and it has been working pretty good other than the odd connectivity failures during solar storms but availability for it is not that critical as the data just buffers at the ground station. There's more info on what it does at our space agency site link above. It's basically a highly effective random number generator.

But yeah, I can't believe I can finally make this official, how many shards can say they've put something in space? Shocked There's going to be a lot of science stuff happening too and I'll be making a separate news section in the forum as there is quite a lot of other stuff to unveil. A lot of the big stuff is on our site though, check it out! http://www.aovaa.space
