Post Good Magazine Just Released   Posted on: Wed Aug 10, 2005 2:32 pm
Yesterday I got the August edition of Aerospace America, the primary magazine of the AIAA, in the mail. Of course, since I've already run through practically all of the good books in my house, I read it promptly, and was somewhat surprised by what it contained. AA is usually a good publication, but this particular edition could almost have been written specifically for our little group here. Here's the link. Since it's free to anyone (only online -- the print version costs money), I highly recommend you read this issue and bookmark the page for when future issues come out. Don't forget the editorials.

Truax wrote a nice piece for them--but when I do a search--I just got a conversations with Bob Truax line.

Yes, I was very annoyed at that, and am toying with the idea of writing a nice scathing letter about it. The only thing I can think of is that it since was a contributing writer instead of a staff writer, they were just taking what they could get.

Aside from the photo caption that says the Kestrel and Merlin engines are Kistler's (which you could blame on the art department), what are the other errors?

Page 1: Incorrectly calls ASP "America's X Prize"

Page 2: Same as above
Page 2: Says that Bigelow's scale module will launch on Falcon 5, it has already been rescheduled on a Russian bird.

Page 4: Stll has Falcon 1 launching from Vandy, but he's already put the word out about Kwaj

...Those are just the ones I saw at a glance.

...The article that I found most interesting was the roundtable. The Space Launch article basically sucked due to all the errors -- Parade magazine did a better job with their article.

Sorry for the double-post, but if you get chance and happen to have a few extra dollars laying around, go check out the latest issue of Discover magazine: they've got an outstanding article on SpaceX and Elon Musk.

The article below says that SpaceX has contacted Vandenburg to arrange its second Falcon I launch for 6th December this year. The first is due now 30 September from wajalein Atoll, lets hope that they have better luck launching from Vandenburg this time.
