Hello fellow explorers,
I've been looking into amateur satellite and rocket launches. Now, I'm by no means saying I'm an expert and have all my plans ready for launch. However, hypothetically if I were to launch a home made satellite, that followed the FCC regulations in transmission of data, would I need to do anything else? Is there some sort of required registry for satellites I would have to inform? Would I need to work with government programs to confirm my orbit does not conflict with any low and high earth orbits? Are there any international safety regulations I need to fulfill?
I know this is a loaded question, however, I guess is space the modern day wild west or is there a system and regulation that needs to be followed.
Thank you all, Nate
