The First Stage

Posted by Chris Radcliff (Creator)

Freeow! That was quite a kick in the pants. Just as I was getting ready for a final push, Ravi Komatireddy came along and pledged enough to rocket us past our Kickstarter goal.

That means that in just four days, this first stage will be done and we'll start that final push into orbit. Over the next few weeks all the maybes will drop away, leaving our definite venue, a specific date, and a whole lot of specific plans to get on with.

Thanks to all of you who pledged; this quite literally couldn't have happened without you. Thanks also for spreading the word about SpaceUp. We still need you to get this idea in front of as much of the space community as possible.

If you haven't pledged yet, you only have until Friday to get patches and t-shirts as rewards. After that they're just for attendees, and those sweet Launch Crew shirts won't be available at any price.

(Can you tell that I've been reading Moonshot and building a Saturn V model with my son? Hello, rocket metaphors!)
