Hackers Said to be Planning to Launch Own Satellites

In an effort to combat the creeping censorship movement, Hackers are planning to put their own communication satellite in low Earth orbit and build ground based stations to maintain contact. The Hackers are working alongside Constellation, a German aerospace research company.

According to BBC News, the satellite plan was recently outlined at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin. It's being called the "Hackerspace Global Grid."
