Call for Narrators

We’re looking to podcast some stories from our next couple of issues in the immediate future. I’ve always been a fan of podcasts, as has James, and we’ve wanted to make some for a long time.

There’s going to be another Mars Rover, (or “Mars Space Laboratory”) this one called “Curiosity.”¬† It was named (and this is adorable) by … Continue reading

Space Saturday

In keeping with our general theme, this week, of actually trying to use the actual blog for actual blogging (actually), we’re going to, every Saturday, post an article that’s space related.
