Wouldn't you like to have your very own Space Program?

When father-and-son backyard experiments have reached the point of sending smartphones up on weather balloons to snap pictures at the edge of space, DIY space enthusiasts will want to take things up a notch. A crowd-funded project to create a $5,000-moon-rocket kit just may do the trick.

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

That's nifty. Maybe, in ten years or so, my kids and I can do this as a science project.

Sounds intriguing! But I wonder about the legal ramifications of having amateurs firing things into space. There's a lot of junk up there already. It would be a shame if someone's backyard project ended up punching a giant hole through the International Space Station on a mis-timed launch.
