Prepare to Blast Off! ‘Doctor Who’ Fans Fund Campaign to Send TARDIS to Space


Doctor Who’s TARDIS is a space and time traveling machine, and now it’s finally headed to outer space. TARDIS is no stranger to actual space travel in the fictional world, but it’s just a decorated blue telephone box with a very notable look here on Earth. Legions of Doctor Who fans want to change that, though, as they have raised enough funds to send a TARDIS-shaped satellite into Earth’s orbit.

The launch is being planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, which is on November 23, 2013. The Kickstarter campaign has about one more day to go, but it has already surpassed its funding goal of $33,000. The TARDIS satellite has already been built and will be equipped with a GoPro Hero 3 so that it can capture the view from above the world. Backers will essentially be paying for how much data they want to entered into the hard drive of the TARDIS.

If you want in on the project, just pledge a minimum of $15 to have your name entered into the hard drive.
