Since July we’ve been working hard on getting prepared for launch. Due to a few issues with obtaining launch permission the launch date has been delayed. We currently have launch permission until the end of October and, depending on the weather, we hope to launch in this time.

The university year is just beginning, so we look forward to welcoming the new freshers into the society and the project.

We’ll keep you posted in the coming weeks. Once again, thank you all for your support!

Earlier today we reached our crowdfunding target of £4500 so a massive thank you to everyone who's donated and shared the project. We'll be emailing sponsors once the deadline arrives and contact details are shared with us.
With regards to overfunding, any extra money we raise will be put first towards a second, much cheaper & lighter camera to face directly downwards and anything extra towards our outreach costs where we take the project into schools and local youth groups to promote STEM subjects. You can still donate until midnight tomorrow (Friday 3rd).
We'll be posting updates on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SUSFplatform/) and hopefully here too so you can see our progress towards the launch date in early July!
