    An anonymous reader writes with some new information on the happenings of the Hacker Space Program. From the article: “At the Chaos Communication Camp 2011 Jens Ohlig, Lars Weiler, and Nick Farr proposed a daunting task: to land a hacker on the Moon by 2034. The plan calls for three separate phases: Establishing an open, free, and globally accessible satellite communication network, put a human into orbit, and land on the Moon. Interestingly enough, there is already considerable work being done on the second phase of this plan by the Copenhagen Suborbitals, and Google’s own Lunar X Prize is trying to spur development of robotic missions to the Moon. But what about the first phase? Answering the call is the ‘Shackspace,’ a hackerspace from Stuttgart, Germany, who’ve begun work on an ambitious project they’re calling the ‘Hackerspace Global Grid.'”
