STAR Systems/Hermes Spacecraft - Mark Longanbach

STAR Systems/Hermes Spacecraft - Mark Longanbach

Their goal is "Space for All."  Their outside shell design is patterned after the space shuttle.  The Hermes space concept is now being funded as a kickstarter project.  The Star Systems Team has four core people and a 75 pit group.

Mark walked through their development efforts.

They are looking for more money.  They would like nitrous tank development, regulatory assistance and sensor acquisition contacts.

Mark has some general kickstart advice:
Sell the vision & team
Have a stellar Front Page
Video Matters - professional video & sound
Select Tiers carefully - intangible is King, the fewer the better and high markup is acceptable (They sold a lot of $75 t-shirts)
Know your budget

He shared some kickstarter articles/sites.  He has found several successful space kickstarter projects.  The links are on their company's site.

The full agenda for Space Access 2013 agenda.
