      I'm still excited to see this documentary. I'm still glad I backed this project. I appreciate your last update, Paul. Would it be possible to get more frequent updates, letting us know more of what's happening? I don't mind the wait, but given that it's delayed by so much, I think we could be updated more frequently with more detail.

      Hi Paul,

      Are you coming to Starship Congress this August? The summit will be packed with people who have been Fighting for Space with unparalleled passion. I can get you a press pass and help prep speakers for you.

      Thank you for all that you do!

      Any news on how things are progressing? There is has been nothing posted here or on the website since Feb. Just curious as to where you have been, who you have interviewed, etc. Doesn't need to be long, just a paragraph on how things are progressing would be nice.

      J Bryon, I don't think that an uninformed bias towards spacex is the route to take. I don't see spacex with anything past earth's orbit.

      I see you'll be hitting the usual suspects next week. I hope that you are paying equal attention to SpaceX. I expect there will be some defensiveness from the established players as they've been shown to have massive inefficiencies due to cost plus contracting. SpaceX is quite a different animal on the scene, and is actually doing things, rather than just talking about doing things.

      Hey Paul,

      Many of us do not have a Facebook to check up on the progress of this project, and I have not seen anything recent on your website as well. Could we just get updated here on how the filming and production is going, as well as the gifts that can be sent out before the finish of the documentary? Thank you.

      It would be neat if there were actual copies of the music score, the sheet music that is. Something that could be framed or displayed. Maybe even an 8x10 of Family Guy signed by Ron Jones.

    24. Paul.small

      Creator Paul Hildebrandt on August 18, 2012

      Nick, the $75 shirt is different than the $30 shirt

    25. Paul.small

      Creator Paul Hildebrandt on August 18, 2012

      Michael, we plan to release an autographed CD of the score.

      Creator Chad Van Wyhe on August 18, 2012

      Added $30 for the t-shirt.
      Can't wait to see the final product, going to be amazing!

      What format will the film score be? Is it an autographed CD? Is it pages of music sheets? Is it music in a book format?

    28. Untitled.small

      Creator Martin Marks on August 18, 2012

      In for $25+$30 for the shirt as well

      Thanks everyone!

      Michael: A mission patch is a great idea, I'll have to look into that...
      Ron Jones is still on board, we are very committed to having Ron score the film.
      I might just have to do something for the lucky $100k backer.

      Thank you!

      Creator Michael Phillips on August 18, 2012

      Is Ron Jones still on board? Who was the lucky 100k backer? You should give them a free sticker, patch, space ice cream or something. How come there is no mission patch for a space movie?

      Isn't a t-shirt already included in the $75 package? Does this mean we will get a second t-shirt if we choose to make the additional $30 pledge?

      I noticed there is no mention of shipping costs at all, have you forgotten to add that or do you just not charge extra for shipping?
