Maker Faire and Blue Ribbons

Comment

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it has taken me way too long to post about this (busy as usual). Maker Faire was a huge success. There was a ton of interest in KickSat. So many people came by the booth that I barely had time to walk around the rest of the fair. Here's the team in front of the booth:

KickSat also won an editor's choice award! Check out our shiny blue ribbon:

Thanks to all of the backers who stopped by the booth - it was great to meet so many of you in person.

Back in the lab, we're busy building flight hardware. Our launch has slipped by a few more weeks and is now officially set for December 9, 2013. That gives us a little more breathing room in our schedule, with KickSat's delivery date now pushed to early September. As always, you can keep an eye on our ever-changing launch date on Spaceflight Now.

Thanks again for all of your support!

- Zac
