Ha! Well what can I say except I know great talent when I see it: I was right!:) It's fun to see you do your thing, and that image of you in the space helmet says it all. In your element.

Some exciting trips coming up: Maybe you'll get to join Elon Musk on the first Mars trip! Now that would be sumthin'!

Re: Touchdown
Steve,

In 1966, EDN did a 7-part series (all in one issue) on the electronics of Apollo.

I have photos of many of the pages, but not them all.

Re: Touchdown
Thanks Patrick! If not for you, I would not be writing and living my dream!

On my way to NASA White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico, then on to NASA Johnson Space Canter in Houston for a whole series of EDN and Planet Analog articles leading up to the Apollo 50th anniversary Moon landing next July and also for NASA's 60th birthday which is this year

Re: Touchdown
Hey Steve, I knew I could count on you to have the details on the project, and to be tracking it for us: Thank you! I'm halfway through the Discovery Channel series on Mars, thanks to your recommendation. Very good docu-drama, but nothing quite like seeing even an unmanned mission land successfully! Yesssssss! indeed (and Martin Rowe: "Touchdown" very appropriate for a Monday night game:)
