Heh, I had forgotten about this, odd that I didn't see this considering I'm already subscribed to Scott Manley for his KSP videos.

Also theres some rather interesting technical discussion in the comments here:

You probably have not seen Scott's video yet because Youtube screwed up the subscriptions inbox again. Its annoying trying to grow my channel when things like that happen and it sure does not help any body else.

Just thought I might update this, after collecting $150,000 from a kickstarter campaign a team successfully made contact and sent commands to the craft, however a lack of response from the propulsion seems to infer that it has run out of nitrogen for flushing its fuel.
A shame but the craft can still do science in it's existing orbit.
