Every year, at the end of August, a town springs up in the middle of Black Rock Desert, Nevada. This week-long event, well-known as “Burning Man,” is celebrated by tens of thousands of people. They enjoy building a city and spending time together and, at the climax of the celebration, they set fire to “The Man,” a huge wooden statue in the central area. Black Rock Desert is also the location where ARLISS (an event for technological experiments using amateur rockets for young students learning space engineering) is held every year. Many of the members of Axelspace had participated in ARLISS in their university days, and this experience has become one of the foundations of our satellite-making know-how.
