Book Review: Shoot for the MoonJun 20, 2020 | Book Reviews, Book Reviews: Non-Fiction | 0 CommentsThe story of the race to the Moon has been told so many times that you might think another book on the subject would be superfluous, but James Donovan shows in his version of this oft-told tale that you’d be mistaken. A jacket blurb by Michael Collins calls this book “the best book on Apollo that I have read.”read more Kathy Lueders Selected to Head NASA’s Human Spaceflight OfficeJun 15, 2020 | NSS Press Releases, Space Policy | 1 CommentThe National Space Society (NSS) congratulates Commercial Crew Program Manager Kathy Lueders for her appointment to head the Human Exploration and Operations (HEO) Mission Directorate, and thanks NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine for moving swiftly and wisely more First Aussie: Dr. Philip Chapman, Apollo’s Astronaut from “Down Under,” Part ThreeJun 13, 2020 | Astronauts, This Space Available | 0 CommentsThis Space Available, by Emily Carney. In the previous installment of This Space Available, Dr. Philip Chapman brainstormed one of the Apollo program’s most famous televised experiments, resigned from NASA’s astronaut corps following the cancellation of Skylab B, and entered into a post-NASA career that saw him rubbing elbows with Dr. Gerard K. O’Neill. In this concluding installment, we’ll return to the place where his scientific career began, undoubtedly one of the closest analogues to another planet that exists on Earth: Antarctica. Moreover, we’ll catch up with him at present time. read more Opportunities and Challenges for Space Solar for Remote InstallationsJun 11, 2020 | NSS Website Updates, Space Solar Power | 0 CommentsResearch paper added to the NSS Space Solar Power Library: Opportunities and Challenges for Space Solar for Remote Installations, Naval Research Laboratory, October 2019.

In the last installment of This Space Available, the life and career of Dr. Philip Chapman, NASA’s first Australian-born astronaut, was discussed from the time he joined the exclusive cadre in 1967 to 1970, when he was doing his best to suggest scientific experiments to Stuart Roosa, Apollo 14’s command module pilot, to be performed as the latter astronaut orbited the Moon. However, Deke Slayton, the head of the astronaut office, was also doing his best in an effort to undermine Chapman’s suggestions at every turn. read more Book Review: Rise of the Space Age MillennialsJun 6, 2020 | Book Reviews, Book Reviews: Non-Fiction | 1 CommentAs the title implies, this book chronicles the careers, ambitions, and opinions of several young space professionals.

The Excess Eleven astronaut group would see many of its members resign before Skylab even made it off the ground in May 1973. One of the astronauts who left this exclusive cadre was physicist Dr. Philip Chapman, who was NASA’s first Australian-born astronaut. This is his story, and as you will see, many of the frustrations that resulted in his 1972 resignation from NASA were echoed by former colleague O’Leary in his 1970 opus, The Making of an Ex-Astronaut. read more Book Review – A Reluctant Icon: Letters to Neil ArmstrongMay 24, 2020 | Apollo, Astronauts, Book Reviews, This Space Available | 0 CommentsThis Space Available, by Emily Carney. A second volume of letters, A Reluctant Icon: Letters to Neil Armstrong, is Hansen’s latest contribution to Armstrong scholarship, and lives up to its title; it shows a First Man who, while being unfailingly modest and polite, is more at ease turning down public appearances and entreaties to reveal more about his personal beliefs and peccadilloes than making splashy celebrity cameos. In turn, the less-than-revealing Armstrong reveals a lot about his personality, and his values – even by his silence. read moreFor bloggers associated with the National Space Society blog, please refer to the NSS Blogging Guidelines of Sept. 27, 2018 for information on NSS blogging standards and expectations.NSS is an independent nonprofit nonpartisan educational membership organization dedicated to the creation of a spacefaring civilization.
