Received a lovely pressie for Christmas: "NASA/ART 50 Years of Exploration", jam-packed full of paintings and sketches from the NASA ART program, ranging from the truly beautiful and realistic ("The Great Moment" by Paul Calle) to the thought-provokingly unusual and 'different' ("Go For The Stars" by P.A. Nisbet) to the Aw, come on, you're [i]having a laugh, right?[/i] abstract and 'modern' ("Moonwalk 1" by Andy Warhol and "Commemorating Apollo 11" by Nam June Paik). For anyone with an interest in the history of space exploration and/or art, this is a must buy.

Definitely. I read some of the drafts, and it has some very good pages about James van Allen for example, sometimes even better than JVA's biography

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

That is quite good, isn't it? It's nice to be appreciated. Wait till you see what I'm doing on Mars! I just started the illustrations a few weeks ago, first by compiling some base maps, then the actual book figures. I will post a few examples later. I'm busy now with compiling a step by step account of Viking operations.

yes, we are working on it. We will have a short delay because next week I will move to live and work in France and I will have a lot of other things to do beside writing
