Kickstart your way to the Moon with the Pocket Spacecraft project. For a meagre £19 you get a small flexible disc with solar cells, antenna and sensors – you can add your own hardware and software to read surroundings and track them as the Interplanetary CubeSat Mothership lets your ship piggyback to the Moon.

You'll be able to take a stroll though the cabin and – SPOILERS! – the accompanying underground facility and cube cells. Just be sure to pack spare undies. [Source: Gizmodo]
