96% there!By kaspar, on 29/04/2019

Hi all,

Thanks to a massive jump in donations over last weekend we are now 96% towards our funding goal. It now seems extremely likely that we’ll get there and that your contributions will be match funded by the Gebert Rüf Stiftung through the Science Booster program.

We do need some more contributions to make it over the line so it would be a great help if you reach out to friends for those final donations. Please tell anyone you know that would have an interest in this.
