Submission + - Opensat DIY Satellite Set to Launch This December (

An anonymous reader writes: South Korean artist Song Hojun has created his own DIY satellite from scratch – and he’s planning to launch it into space this coming December. Song created the satellite from assorted junk he found in back-alley electronics stores in his home town of Seoul, and over the course of six years he has finally managed to complete his space-bound project. Song’s satellite cost just over $400 to make, however the cost of launching it to space is going to be a lot, lot more – over $100,000.
