Relevant times

  • Moment of Solstice is 3:03 PM (we won't be there yet)
  • Sunset is 4:20 PM (probably not that either)
  • Most likely arrival time: 7ish
  • http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/visit/stonehenge-memorial: "Stonehenge Memorial … [is] open daily 7 a.m. to dusk. Admission is free."
    • But it's not really part of the "museum grounds" geographically, so it's probably okay

What we're doing

High Frontier Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1045364912/high-frontier

  • Brandon doesn't think our budget will support a $1000 donation right now
  • Ben likes the "name a transport ship" reward ($50)
  • Brandon suggests we could pay for a 3D model of an eco-village to be put in the game
    • Ben: For the "name a building after you" reward, could we name it after SolSeed?
  • Ben is planning to suggest a couple of CELSS parameters for the game simulation
    • Brandon wonders if we could help write the game

Evaluation

  • Brandon … so many fun things … looking forward to hearing about Bioneers … sorry I didn't get to hear your talk
  • Ben … I’m feeling relieved that we still have a month and a half to plan the solstice, because it seems like it is going to take a while to get all the details together
