The Space Review

Man, I am behind in my reading of The Space Review!

From the April 26, 2010 issue: G. Ryan Faith looks further at the new space plan (part 1 here). Taylor Dinerman looks at the return of the RLV soap opera. Mark V. Sykes also speculates on the new direction in the space program. And a look to the past with Eve Lichtgarn's review of a book from the dawn of the space age.

From the May 3, 2010 issue: Roger Handberg looks at the future of the ISS with the new direction in space. Daniel Handlin looks at commercial involvement in the new direction. Taylor Dinerman goes back to the Moon. A post-American Moon? And Jeff Foust looks at a book that was published at the right time (for the news cycle).

From the May 10, 2010 issue: Doris Hamill on the new direction (still waiting on a better roadmap, myself). Taylor Dinerman looks at the possibility of additional shuttle missions. Send up the Toybox! A first step?

From the May 17, 2010 issue: The final (?) mission of space shuttle Atlantis. Philip Stooke asks where are we going in space? Good question! Doris Hamill on technology push and pull. Finally, S. Alan Stern (always worth reading!) on the migration from public (government) efforts to private efforts.

From the May 24, 2010 issue: Zombies in space! Jeff Foust on (what was) the upcoming launch of Falcon IX and the test of the Dragon spacecraft (launch was yesterday, all looking good!). Thomas J. Frieling on Rocket Men by Craig Nelson. Glad to see I wasn't the only one who had some problems with the book. Finally, Jonathan Coppersmith looks at a recent conference on commercial space.

From the June 1, 2010 issue: Luckily, this article by S. Alan Stern did not come to pass. Read it anyway. Simon Vanden Bussche on Legos in Space. Actually, some dang good ideas that I've been saying for a long time. Jeff Foust on a commercial space conference in Chicago. Finally, James C. McLane III on Mars as the key to the future of NASA. Only if it ain't flag and footsteps, folks!

I'll try not to let so many issues pile up!
