Ulises I is a citizen project for the design, construction and launch of a satellite, conceived as a work of art. The launch will be carried out by Interorbital Systems, situated in California. The satellite will be in polar orbit at an altitude of 300km for four months, broadcasting on an amateur wavelength. There will be five terrestrial bases monitoring Ulises I.
Ulises proposes a poetic, minimalist progression, a citizen effort of Mexican origin, even before Mexico had a space agency.
The mission of the Colectivo Espacial Mexicano is to establish processes in the reality of citizens’ use of space, by generating art and space projects in a collective way, and establishing processes to change the conversation and parameters with regard to Mexico's future.
