      Hi Caitlin,
      Is the plan to eventually upload the selfies to the Arkyd website at some point in the future? Keep up the great work! Thanks

      Was the arkyd-3 test platform supposed to be on the CRS-3 mission that went up in flames? And was it indeed onboard?

      Hi Kelly! First - thanks for being a backer, and an ENTHUSIASTIC one as well! We have plans in the future to open up additional ways to be a part of the ARKYD mission. Stay tuned for an update on this later in the year as we make plans for what this might look like. We expect to build a community for all current backers, and hope to also enable additional items to be funded. Thanks so much, and appreciate the support! -Caitlin

      Hi! I'd be thrilled with the opportunity to make a second pledge on the order of securing a 'family pack' of selfies and/or a t-shirt. Are there any plans to open a second follow-up campaign for current backers? Shout-out to Mr. Takei! Regards, Kelly
      P.S. I am sympathetic to development hiccups. Don't be discouraged, we're with you!
