Sounds great! If ever there were a match made in heaven, this is it.

Will membership dues and donations to TPS help cover the cost of UMSF, or will it still be required to fund UMSF separately? Not trying to save a few bucks here, just wondering... After all, these two websites account for the bulk of my internet time every day.

TPS has a nice logo... it's a match made in outer space smile.gif
Seriously will http://planetary.org/amateur/index.html also include a gallery with magazine covers & newspaper articles provided by UMSF forum members?

Stephen, there is a written agreement that outlines the boundaries between the Society and UnmannedSpaceflight.com. It's true that bosses change, and that admins and mods may come and go, but the admin team is the same as it was the day before yesterday and none of us anticipates it changing much any time soon. I'll be honest, nobody else who is employed by the Society even reads this forum, but everyone there is delighted to see the beautiful images that I pull out of it to show them.

Nick, I've confirmed that we are participating in the CFC this year, but I haven't heard back on my double-check of the specific code yet.

Lunik9, there probably wouldn't be a separate gallery for such images, but certainly it could be noted in image captions (and with a tag) if an image has been published somewhere.

Emily,
...by any chance did he transfer the title, 'dictator for life of unmannedspaceflight.com' ?

Oh well! Doug is extremely lucky, you are very lucky, and we all are just lucky to be here!

Good Luck to us all (!!) ... PDP8e

I have expressed here before my belief that the origin and evolution of UnmannedSpaceflight.com is a piece of history in it's own right deserving of preservation as a "world heritage site". Future historians of science, of public participation in science, and of the role of the internet therein will find it an invaluable case study. I hope that one of the things the Planetary Society will now do is to archive a copy of the whole contents of the forum up to this point, entirely independent from the server on which it runs.

Thanks, Emily. Please let me know when you get the code; want to verify that my donation's going to the correct place! wink.gif

I'm a bit slow to post here and as such my apologies sad.gif !

That said, CONGRATULATIONS to you Doug and I can't wait to hear more of your role at JPL. I'll admit that I'm even more excited about that bit of news than the pleasant news that UMSF has comfortable and hopefully safe home with the PS. (One more inch closer in being drug kicking and screaming toward twitter.) Thank you Emily for your efforts biggrin.gif !

While not a prolific poster, I love UMSF!


Cheers!

Great news!

Re: Ngunn's proposal

How about we just archive the site and place it on the DVDs along with all the names TPS collects for planetary missions? Would be a great way to archive the site for the future!

Also, do you happen to know if TPS is on the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) this year? I looked for it in the pamphlet but didn't see it; entered the code from last year anyhow, hoping for the best...


The code is 53736 -- hope that's what you entered! smile.gif

I'm sure there has been far more work behind the scenes to make this happen than people are modestly coming clean about so many congratulations to all.

To Emily and all the other administrators - you can feel a real warm glow of pride with this news at a job well done.

Doug - many congratulations on your 'new' job. It must be a dream come true.

Now if JPL just needed an accountant/statistician... laugh.gif
