I think this stage of the puzzle went really well, a lot of people contributed to the solution, and there were no major mistakes on our part which made everything go much smoother.

This later become the unofficial home and hangout for people working on the puzzles and has been an awful lot of fun. There were some outrageous coincidences as well, the ‘Puff, the Magic Dragon’ clue had unexpected relationships with other space things that we didn’t take into account. Some people thought we were referring to the Dragon spacecraft developed by SpaceX, others thought it might be a reference to the Dragon’s head nebula .
