Hi Sandy, heard about this earlier today, but didn't realize the payload was so valuable.  It's a terrible shame.  Hope they get it figured out quickly.

Bummer Sandy.  I hope they can figure out what went wrong and prevent it from happening again.

There is so much time and money that goes into these launches. And when one fails it can be a real blow to the community.  I'm certain they'll figure it out, pick up the pieces and move forward.

Gabe Sanders it is really sad. But, yes, you know they'll work it out and rebuild. Nothing will keep them down.

It's nice to hear that business is going well for you. But, don't forget to take time for yourselves. It's so easy to let this business consume every waking hour of our time.
