SATINS is an STEM program with the focus of providing manned Edge Of Space flights to teachers, college, and graduate school students, astronomers, scientists and more. Our goals are to establish the first ever public educational space program and to increase student achievement in science, technology, engineering, and math via high altitude near space manned modules, and unmanned experiment launch platforms.
As educators, astronomers, and scientists, you will not only have the opportunity to conduct with your students, high altitude science missions, you will also have the opportunity to educate students all over the world from the edge of space.
SATINS also offers opportunities for K-12 students to become the engineers and scientists of their very own space program by conducting real life missions to the edge of space through high altitude launch kits. As an educator, instructor, your students will be in charge of every aspect of real world science missions from the planning, engineering, fabrication/assembly of their flight platform and experiments, to launch, and recovery, then finally they will analyze and publish the results of their mission, complete with images, data, and video.
On July 30th 2016, in celebration of their 7th anniversary, Third Man Records in Nashville, TN and in Detroit, MI revealed their long awaited mission to play the first phonographic record in space! - a gold-plated 12" master of Carl Sagan's "A Glorious Dawn" (a moving arrangement of Sagan's sagacious words culled from his magnificent Cosmos series, previously pressed and distributed as a 7" in their first year of operation, 2009). This record marks the label's 3 MILLIONTH RECORD PRESSED!
As the Launch Partner to Third Man Records - SATINS is proud to have been involved in a project that was as unique and inspiring as ICARUS.
