We're running a bit behind, but we;re getting close to mailing out all the rewards and PongSats. We're just waiting on the DVDs to arrive from the production house (there are over 1,400 all together). We are expecting them in the next couple of days then everything rolls out.
We are making great progress sorting PongSats and editing video. By Wednesday the editing will be done. We're hired a production house to make the nearly 1600 dvds for everybody. That will take a about five days then we'll start putting everything in the mail.
Here three pics from up top of the backer signs. We will be making a CD of those images for the backers soon as well.
There are about 200 PongSats and 25 cards that were not sent in for the mission. We are committed to getting absolutely everyone flown. If you didn't send your card or PongSat in and you were signed up send it in anyway. We are planning a mission for this winter that we can fly them on.
If we get weathered out for the winter mission we will fly them on the April 2013 mission.
Back and backing up images and data. There
about 4 terabytes in all so it will be a couple of days (and there is
also a fairly desperate need for sleep). However here's a quick scene
from Away 70 above the world.
