South Korean artist SONG Hojun dreams of building a satellite and launching it up into space. In his underground art studio in Mangwon-dong, Seoul, he establishes OSSI (Open Source Satellite Initiative) and devises a plan to become the world’s first private citizen to successfully launch a satellite. He signs a contract with a French company called NovaNano which provides an adapter to install his satellite on a Russian Soyuz rocket. He also launches an effort to sell 10,000 OSSI T-shirts to raise the 100 million won (US$96,000) budget, but things get complicated. Online sales take a lot of work, the launch date keeps being delayed, and the technical challenge of constructing a satellite also drives him into a tight corner. Travelling through France, Russia, Argentina and the U.S., SONG finally heads for Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Can SONG's dream be realized?
