"the company abruptly stopped the feed shortly after."
Is there a reason they don't want the public to see a mission failure?
It is not like they should be embarrassed, space is hard and they are absolutely incredible for even attempting it. For most of us, our greatest accomplishment (err... an accepted pull request into the LLVM project? Haha, I'm lame) are so much less valuable compared even their biggest failure.
Is it something sad like if a potential investor sees a bad failure, they will pull out all funding?
