Space solar power article up too 

NSS's print magazine, "Ad Astra", just reprinted my space solar power article from last summer, in the February issue of the magazine. Unfortunately that issue isn't up on the NSS web site yet. In fact, the official NSS web site was down most of last week, and is rather slow right now - and I've been involved in a volunteer effort to move it to a new location. Note the missing 'www' in the latter address. Still a bunch of work to do on it - for example, registration and donations aren't working in either place.

Review #3 - Einstein in Berlin 

I think I really need to learn to write cogently within the 300-word limit of these reviews... it seems a little disjointed looking at the end result. Oh well... nice to see it in print again :-)

Letter to Suffolk Life 

Our local weekly free rag has had some rather negative commentary on Bush's new space proposal - I felt prompted to respond last week with this note; they called to tell me it should be in the March 3rd edition of the paper.


Jamais Cascio of worldchanging.com just posted some commentary on climate change, attaching a copy of an essay I sent on the subject of climate change mitigation. There are some alternatives that could resolve the problem, but as Cascio points out, may have other side-effects we don't like.

The Mars Project 

Some thoughts after Shelly brought this book home from the library for me. Von Braun really liked the big projects, but in future perhaps what we really need is to think small, incremental steps.

New Presidential Commission 

Neil Tyson emailed me with the URL for the new commission - looks like they're on a good track - Moon, Mars, and Beyond!

Second review - "Lost in Space" 

I think I'll have to talk to the editor about the paragraph breaks - maybe I needed more in the original; anyway, it's up there :-)

At the basketball clinic 

Turns out we have wireless networking in our schools - who would have thought?! Fun fun fun!
