Supercluster + Dropbox

Supercluster + Dropbox

Supercluster is made possible, and currently broadcasts live to the cosmos, in part through a partnership with Dropbox.

For years Supercluster was only a dream project, hatched by a dedicated team of space enthusiasts at A24 and GrandArmy, who felt there must be a better way to tell amazing space stories. 

Dropbox makes cloud collaboration solutions that give the world’s most creative teams the freedom to work the way they want. When Dropbox learned about the creative collaborations behind Supercluster, they jumped at the opportunity to help.

Together with Dropbox’s support and products, the Supercluster dream became a reality.

We believe Space is For Everyone.

Space is humanity’s greatest story.

We’re here to tell it.
