Robert T. Bigelow; We have just been informed that there will be a 3-4 week delay of our first launch. We are told that if there are no other delays, our new launch time frame will be between July 4th and July 14th. This delay is necessary due to special preparations that the launch provider is continuing to make for our flight. This flight contains our Genesis I spacecraft with a total of 13 cameras inside and outside the spacecraft. This is not a commercial flight. The Genesis II spacecraft scheduled to fly this coming fall will be our first commercial effort and it is for that flight that we are currently taking only reservations. If the Genesis I spacecraft functions as anticipated we shall then proceed to contact all of the parties who have made Genesis II reservations and complete the transactions to “Fly Your Stuff”.

We are continuing to take reservations for the anticipated fall 2006 flight. Only after we have launched our first spacecraft and obtained satisfactory results from a variety of information sources onboard the spacecraft will we then actually convert reservations to purchases.
