The ambitious folks that run Southern Stars have finished work on their Skycube project.

Last summer they raised over $116,000 in a Kickstarter campaign to build the diminutive satellite.  The project raised about $34,000 more than was needed to make and launch the satellite.  This allowed the team to make a twin Skycube in case of any mishaps.  This marks the first space mission designed and funded by amateur astronomers and others.

The satellite is now sitting Houston awaiting its launch on the SpaceX CRS-3 mission to the International Space Station on November 28th, 2013.  The SkyCube will be deployed from ISS approximately two weeks later.

In the fall of 1999, I was ordained as a metaphysical minister in the Order of Melchizedek, ordained by Reverend Dan Chesbro and became a member of the Sanctuary of the Beloved (New York). I studied further under Reverend Brown at the United Metaphysical Churches of America in Roanoke, Virginia, which had its origins in the Spiritualist Movement. I am also a Master Teacher of Sekhem Seichim Reiki with over eleven years of experience practicing and teaching Reiki. I have also given messages and ‘sermons’ at Arlington Metaphysical Chapel (Virginia), where I led adult study classes on a variety of esoteric topics. My online group, One with Spirit Meta-Journal Forum, has been going strong since early 2002. I'm also known for my Psychic Portraits, art from beyond the physical.
