Tier Fullillment Progress

Posted by STAR Systems (Creator)

Hi everyone,

In these past two weeks, we've made some great progress in our tier fulfillment.  First off, check out our supporters page on our main website.  For everyone that pledged 5+ dollars, if you chose to, your name and/or company/link is on this page.  It's a great reminder for the team of not only who our supporters are, but also how many people believe in our effort!

Next, we've been working on creating our paperweights and spacecraft models for our larger tiers.  Here are a few pictures:

We are currently in the process of acquiring the extra hardware we need to beef up our rocket monitoring, test and control system.  We hope to have some exciting new footage, along with some neat data, to show our backers in our next update.  Ultimately, that's going to depend on how soon we get our hardware and if our controls guys will have enough time with it by then.

Thanks again for your continued support!
