Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
Backers: We've gotten a few comments and emails from Backers indicating that they did not get the email we sent out last month with the download information for their digital copy of the ISP. Therefore I will be sending out another email (from a different email account) over the next few days to backers entitled to the digital ISP. Sorry about the delay!
Same here, also didn't receive the email with the instructions how to download the pdf.
Sent an email.
I never got mine either, Just sent you a message.
Sorry Lars, my typing skills leave a bit to be desired. My email is JayWittner@gmail.com.
Lars: An email went out on August 29th from Gary Bickford at Integrated Space Analytics to backers entitled to the PDF version of the ISP. The email included instructions on how to download your PDF. If you did not get it please send me an email at JayWittner@gamil.com.
Hi, I'm super excited to get the PDF. Any idea of when these will ship? I figured that it happens after the printed posters have been sent...?
John, Matt, and Jeffrey: The update on the signed posters is that our last partner has signed all of them and they are currently in route to me in Florida. I intend to get them in the mail to all of you within one business day of when I get them. Thanks for your patience!
How goes the battle on getting these shipped out?
Thank you for the update. I have been looking forward to getting this and didn't know that everyone was so spread out. A very big thank you for all the time and effort spent to getting the signatures.
Matt & Jeffrey: Both of you selected the ISP poster signed by our development team (thanks). For the last few weeks these posters have been shipped from person to person as the signatures are added to the posters (every signer lives in a different state). They're currently in route to the last person for signature who will then ship all the posters to me so I can ship them to the 18 backers that selected this reward. Matt, thanks for providing us with your new address. We have it on file and that's where your poster will be sent.
I'm with Jeff. I never received a notice of shipping, either. On top of that, I emailed you a change of address months ago as well.
Another epoch has passed.
Jeffrey: It appears that you somehow missed our update of June 30th. However, I'm working on another update today so you may want to just look for that.
June 6 (43 days ago): " We expect to get our delivery date from the printer this coming week."
*********** ******************* ***********
On a galactic scale just about enough time has passed to 1) obtain a delivery date, 2) post an update, or 3) complete 7 to 10 of the theoretical epochs initiating the creation of an entire universe.
Max: No problem on your new address. Please send me an email at JayWittner@gmail.com and include your new address. We expect to get our delivery date from the printer this coming week and I'll be doing an update asking everyone for address updates. Almost there!
When I first backed this, the projected ISP ship date was November 2014. When the campaign asked for my address in January, I assumed shipping was coming soon. I'm a student, so I change my living arrangements every school year. Is there any way to change my shipping address so my poster doesn't go to an apartment I no longer rent?
Jeffrey: The timing of your comment couldn't be better. As you may remember we locked down the content of the ISP late last month. In today's meeting we locked down the visual design of the updated ISP. We'll be reviewing for typos this coming week and plan to send the ISP file to the printer by the end of the month! Have a great Memorial Day weekend.
Hope this is printed before the first few items on the plan are dated.
I just posted an update about 15 minutes ago. ISP content has been finalized, we're now doing some visual design enhancements before sending the file to the printer.
Any update on an ISP ship date?
David: Several Backers of our ISP project selected as their reward the privilege of having their logo displayed on the ISP. Their generous support is helping bring the ISP back to life. We thank them, and you, for your help in reviving the ISP.
I'm a bit disappointed that I paid $60 for the ISP poster to support the creation and I'm going to end up with something with ads plastered on it. Would be nice if early backers could get a version minus the ads.
Hi everyone. We've gotten a couple of questions about the timelines of our various rewards. I posted an update today with more details, but to summarize most of the rewards have now been shipped out except for the ISP itself. The updated ISP should be delivered next month in printed and digital versions. Thanks for your patience and support!
Hi. Can we have an update on any integrated delivery plan? November 2014 seems an awfully long time ago..
Jonette & Chicco:
I'd planned an ISP update for Tuesday after the SpaceX launch. That launch was postponed to tomorrow morning. I'll be releasing an update tomorrow even if the Falcon 9 launch is postponed again.
Any news on the Integrated Space Plan? Is it ready?
I am a backer for the "Flown in space hardware"; any idea when the package will be delivered? It was supposed to be on November 2014.
The last update suggested you would have established an Estimated Completion Date soon after Dec. 3. What is your delivery plan?
Time for a space update don't ya think?
Exciting campaign, great finish, important deliverable: Integrated Space Plan is one for the books! EXCELSIOR, indeed!
Whoa, someone came in big time! Any super-duper stretch goals for that one?
Glad the project made it, stretch goals and all.
Someone took the $10 000 reward level during the last few minutes... let's just hope they knew what they were doing.
Finish line in sight. Donation increased. Let's light this candle!
.@elonmusk (Funded!) Hyperlink stretch goal now on Integrated Space Plan - Envisioning Humanity's Future @Kickstarter http://kck.st/1i8o0Ys
Awesome!! Glad to see this get fully funded and looking forward to hanging the ISP on my wall!
Yes! Congrats! Can't wait to see it! :)
So glad to see this was funded. Looking forward to my poster.
Almost there guys! I am extremely happy that the ISP is going to be funded. I have been looking to some space research, but have been back and forth and what to focus on. I am thinking the ISP can help out with that. Congrats!
Go Derek! I hope Elon follows your lead!
Tweet away! Fingers crossed.

.@elonmusk Could you RT? Final push to support the Integrated Space Plan - Envisioning Humanity's Future @Kickstarter http://kck.st/1i8o0Ys
Have watched this with great interest. A remarkable undertaking. Funded today, and willing to up my support when the finish line is in sight. A thanks to Open Luna and Space Frontier Foundation for their (continued) efforts.
Really hoping this project meets its goal. People on the fence should join in and make this a reality.
Thanks for the words of encouragement and support with my helping me fund my project! I wish you guys the best of luck with yours as well. Solomon
Andrew: Thanks for your suggestion. I tried to send an email to Neil deGrasse Tyson but the email address I had was out of date.
Thrilled to be a backer of this initiative - it's really worthwhile!
Has anybody attempted to reach out to Seth MacFarlane or Neil DeGrasse Tyson on this? I would think that there is a strong chance that they would take interest in the project, and could possibly help to spread the word.
Chris: Thanks for reaching out to the Planetary Society and Space.com!
I've written both the Planetary Society (Bill Nye) and Space.com, urging them to do a piece on the Integrated Space Plan and this Kickstarter. I suggest everyone else do the same. If enough people write to them then there is a chance that they'll write an article or maybe even do a video to support the kickstarter. I also suggest writing to any other related site and urging them to show their support as well.
I would also love to see a horizontal version of the poster. It would be much easier to hang and view. There is a lot of information on the poster and a horizontal poster would be able to be hung at eye level, making it easier to see. Whereas with the vertical poster you will either need to stand on something or bend down in order to see various parts of the poster. I would definitely pay for a signed horizontal poster. Just sayin'. Best of luck!
I remember working with Ron Jones back at Rockwell in 1988-1992. We helped him convert his document (then written in MacDraw) into something that could scroll around in a Mac screen without having the original document.
We also created several Commercial space reports that included a post printout of his document at that time. I still have those.
Great to see it is continuing.
Jeffrey: Nobody on our team seems to know Bill Nye. If any of you know him an introduction would be fantastic!
