      Damned iPhone. I was going to say that (Richard's explanation) doesn't explain the path that was drawn. Presumably it leaves Earth to go to Saturn, but then returns to Earth; which should appear as a loop. Instead the Earth is drawn separately, which begs the question "what planet was that village on?"

      @David Kemp They have to refuel to slingshot around jupiter to get to the death star.

      The Death Star no longer destroys planets... but captures and takes them for walks.

      It appears at 200k we just return back to Earth. Shouldn't it be a loop?

      Does this mean some backwater huts in a forest have a space program?

      At 250 we'll add additional levels (basically so you can up your payment a little to get the hardcover, from a couple different levels).

      I'd love to offer them as a straight up bonus, but hardcovers are a bit pricey to print and ship.

      If it hits 250k, that means about 10k books are being sold. That's a lot of stamps to lick.

      So if we hit 250k is that a hardcover for backers who have a dead tree copy ($20+) or will it be added at a non-minimum tier?

      I have participated in this discussion.

      @Michael, do you really want Uranus stretched goal?

      I think the real question is; what horrible catastrophe threw those planets out of alignment!?

      Where's the Uranus stretch goal?
