The idiot with the original idea for this project. Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Chris was a mechanical engineer once upon a time and has acquired PTSD from the electronics and coding involved in this project.

The mysterious wizard with the magical powers to make homemade spaceships talk with satellites and mobile phones. Based in Austin, Texas, James has enough full-stack programming skills that he actually gets paid sometimes.
