Last year's attempt was very exciting and would have been a success if they hadn't drained the batteries in the submarine. Yeah, that's right, submarine.. they built one of them too! But they need your support. Please donate to the campaign and wish these crazy danes the best of luck!"

The pilot was shot for just $6000, raised through the micro-funding platform Kickstarter and the production is being supported through donations on the show's website. Donations can be made on a sliding scale with "bonus" rewards for each level such as an mp3 of the opening theme and deleted scenes. The distribution is through filesharing systems such as Bittorrent and Limewire. Is this the future of television?"

There are many justifications and high concepts for human spaceflight that I have subscribed to over the years but I'd like to know what other space geeks think. How are those who advocate robotic exploration over human exploration missing the point? Why send people into space?" Link to Original Source
