Makeup Mission

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.

take care,

      Ooh, good. My daughter and I were signed up for this mission (we had numbers for 2 PongSats) but didn't get them done due to my husband's deployment to Afghanistan in late September. It just got put back on the back-burner. We will definitely get them sent in. Thank you!!!

      Hi guys. How do I know if you got my card. I posted one to you, but I don't know if you got it and sent it aloft. David

      Is it possible to back the April mission and send a note? I backed at the $25+ level for the DVD but would love to have a note sent into space!!
