There is a company that will put microsatellites in a low Earth orbit for like $10,000 if I remember correctly. They'll come back down within a year or two but you're basically given a footprint and some guidelines for materials and EM but beyond that you put in whatever instrumentation you want. I was trying to talk a group of my nerdier friends into throwing in to put up one so we could brag about having our own satellite lol
LOL...now that I want to see

I am seriously glad you mentioned all that.
Because I had already filled an old sewer pipe with m80's, tied my GoPro to a Toys R Us remote control 4x4, stuffed my circa 1978 Hansolo and Chewie action figures into the front seat and was about to light the match.
That was too close
