Same here for $50. Received personal thanks from Chris!

Regarding the lifetime membership: I've purposefully avoided it for a while now.
You wouldn't be making a contribution to the site ever after...

Some folks are silly enough to volunteer donations while having a lifetime membership.

I'll chip in. This is a big deal and having NSF repped by the excellent Derrick is an obvious yes, but also it helps Elon as it means he has one more person asking him proper questions and not "Elon, Elon. What's your perfect Sunday?" ;)

I put some in too. I think it might make sense to set up a thread to start crafting suggested questions. Helodriver is highly competent and probably doesn't need help but it can't hurt...

Yeah, anyone who contributed will get put into a special access thread for that. I'll also be throwing in an extra surprise for those folk just ahead of when Elon takes the stage.  :o ;D

Another lifetime member, I pitched in $25 to help out a little. So excited for IAC in less than 3 months!

Just sent $40. I only became a life member so I wouldn't have to remember when to renew. ;)
Been making contributions here and there to support the site ever since.

Glad to be able to contribute 50$ to NSF! It will be awesome to have a NSF expert on location!
Really looking forward to get to see the details of the Mars plan.
Good luck!

Maybe we can crowdfund a Marstronaut in a not too distant future!  :)

Amazing support...and we're over 80 percent towards the target for his flights, hotel, etc! Honestly, I thought if we got half, that would be amazing, and the site would cover the other half. Brilliant community support, not least with the quiet period of the July 4 weekend.

All contributors will be getting another PM from me, with a link, later today or tomorrow, per the idea of thanks in the previous post.

Ditto
Do us proud (again) in Mexico, helodriver.
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?
