MARCH 2013 Kickstarter Balloon, Sensors, Robotic Experiment Play by Play and more on getting involved:
Artist's Statement: The Balloons stand for all the many Supporters of LiftPort. It's a part of the Image Campaign for LiftPort. Any Balloon can be different sizes and that means all the different sized Balloon stand for how much support that the community gives to LiftPort, but are all a part of this. All the members are balloons... and a balloon can lift up something...Many balloons can lift up more things..It's a picture to show how the community connects... :) I am one of the Balloons you know ;)...It's strategic thinking...and in the end LiftPort has a new lunar elevator animation to show the plan/dream...and a image campaign with a clear nice message.
