NSS - adAstra -to the stars - THE MAGAZINE OF THE NATIONAL SPACE SOCIETY - arrived

If you are a member of the NSS, you too probably have the magazine in
your mailbox.

If not, you might like to join the society and support going to space.
The adAstra magazine is just a bonus.

There is an article about space business booming along the Southwest
"Rocket Belt".

Also the Summer Star Planner Calendar, tracking space for your viewing.
Interesting article "Clear Skies: Understanding the Orbital Debris
Problem and Its Possible Solutions".

If you have not seen any of the Apollo DVDs by Spacecraft Films, there
is a nice review, "Reliving the Past, Inspiring the Future" by Robert Z.

You will also find some nice pictures by the winners 2007 NSS Space
Settlement Art Contest.

Online you can view these:
Gallery for NSS Space Settlement Art Contest

You can also find articles at adAstra ONLINE

Here is one online article by Al Globus.

If you are interested in settling somewhere off world, like in space,
the Moon or on Mars, you might be interested in looking at the links on
the NSS web site in the Space Settlement Nexus section.

I have passed the link before but new material is being added and the list of online
reference material continues to grow.

Thanks for looking up with me.

will have to close and go back to your search results.

opposite corner.

Lunar Bases
The Lunar Base never seemed to be a high priority to space visionaries,
who were mainly interested in getting on to Mars. It was usually seen as
a proving ground for Mars vehicle technology, or as a place to mine
propellant for use in a larger space infrastructure.
