      Have I missed the opportunity to submit my selfie for the photo? There have been no other updates? Any other backers able to fill me in, am I going to the wrong place for updates?

      Going to space is not easy. And maybe never will. We get reminded from time to time about it.

      This incendent will keep us reminding that space travel is dangerous along with everything else about space is even just looking up, yet that still doesn' stop us from keep looking up. This is murphys law action that we need to learn from so we keep moving forward.

      It's been a tough week for the private space industry, but it remains an exciting venture. You guys have the coolest jobs and keep US going! Stay strong and God Speed!

      This has not been a good week for private space. I was reading this KS update when word of the Virgin Galactic crash came over the radio.
      This said, we pick up the pieces, find out what went wrong, re-engineer if needed and go launch again. I like the PRHQ site. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for the update. It is with regret I read that updates are moved away from Kickstarter. It essentially means many of your backers will not receive news from you anymore. Since I backed you on kickstarter, I expect you keep us updated through kickstarter project updates, even if they only contain a link to your site. If each project goes this way, I spend an evening a week to check all projects I back for updates. Having said that, it would have been nice to have had an update about this launch!

      Sad news, glad you are pushing forward. It's been a tough week for commercial space travel. Given that the Anteres will likely be grounded for a while will you be exploring other launch vehicles (SpaceX, Ariane, ISRO)?
