BPL Announces Kickstarter Project

21 December, 2009

Dear Valued Aerospace Customer:

It has been some time since Brower Propulsion Laboratory has issued a system - wide Memorandum, which is a drastic action we prefer to reserve for truly momentous occasions.  But here, we make an exception.

BPL announces a Kickstarter project:  Kickstarter is an organization that assists with procurement of funding.  We encourage the public to visit this web location ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brower/moranic-mission-to-montana-bpl-003-a-space-miss) to find out more about BPL's latest strategy to part the aerospace community with some of its Stimulus Package.  As with all BPL projects, we need funds to purchase shoestrings and therefore have developed a line of Aerospacey products to allow Landlubbers to participate.  We would appreciate advocates of this project employing their 'social network' contraptions in the service of seducing like- or un- minded individuals and institutions to our current cause.

BPL announces Exhibition:  The BPL-003 mission equipment and spacecraft will be on view and available for interaction at the Esther Klein Art Gallery at the University City Science Center in Philadelphia from 22 January, 2010, until 21 March, 2010.

The next launch window for this mission opens in September, 2010.  The last launch window closed on our Engineer's fingers and the launch had to be postponed until we completed the new health insurance forms, which we had to develop a whole department to interpret.
Information on the mission can be had here: http://browerpropulsionlab.com/directory/BPL_003_MMM_Moranic_Mission_to_Montana

In case you don't know about the Moranic Mission To Montana, forgot, or don't care, here is a quick rundown of the Mission:  BPL will launch three spacecraft near Livingston, Montana.  The Lander, Nanosatellite, and Rover will explore the region originally visited by Thomas Moran, American painter, in 1871.  The Mission is tasked with revisiting sites depicted by Moran, with updated technical means, to reinterpret the incredible history that his vision helped to shape.  In BPL's ongoing Search For LIfe On Earth (S-FLOE), a cheaper step-half cousin of large scale Art Projects developed by NASA, we expect to use objective means to make indeterminate, subjective claims.  Everything made at BPL is the product of its single Employee, to conserve funds and expectations.  Readers and just-look-at-the-picturers alike are invited to examine the labyrinthine website, http://browerpropulsionlab.com
