STAR Systems Update Hiatus

First off, I'd like to thank everyone for being patient during our lack of updates to you all.    After our Kickstarter campaign succeeded, we spent a lot of time responding to all of the individuals who contacted us, performing several interviews on the web and through our local news organizations (including our most recent, by AZ Central), and creating our plan of attack now that our funding has arrived.

What we did not plan for, however, was our fearless leader, Morris Jarvis, being called to Ireland for his professional job.  Morris was in Ireland for 3+ weeks, which postponed much of our development progress at his shop.  I asked Morris to provide a few pictures of his trip:

Thankfully Morris is back in the states and we are back to progressing on our project.  

Tier Fulfillment

We are moving forward on fulfilling our tiers.  I have our web guru creating the page that will list all of the donations.  I am working to complete that list in the next day or two.  

We have also received our order of stickers to send out to all of you.  I will be sending out the stickers to all of our $10 donors in the next few days.

I also just ordered everyone's shirts on Friday, and we spent this Sunday creating another Hermes Spacecraft model.

I'll be posting more updates promptly as our tier awards start to go out to people; I'll also be creating a backer-only update which discusses some of the challenges we've run into recently with our sensor development and what we're doing to move forward.

Thank you!
