We are so busy in post that we almost forgot to make an announcement on our website…
SOLO – Season 1.5 launches April 12th, 2011! This is also the 30th Anniversary of the Space Shuttle Program. How’s that for timing?
We will release the first three episodes on YouTube with annotations and updated graphics beginning April 4th. Episode 4 will begin on Tuesday, April 12 and we will release a new episode each week. 6 new episodes are coming your way!
And we couldn’t have accomplished any of this without the help of our SOLONAUTS! Every dollar was put to good use. Thank you for your donations!
