Space Debris Visual Storytelling

An unashamed plug for an article in today's Financial Times about the dangers of space debris. It's a new way for the FT to present these informative articles, very visual, but the most important part - the words - were written by Mrs Joe. It may be behind a paywall but I think you are allowed a few...

Re: "Censorship"

Yes, there were a number of words/terms that were deemed "inappropriate" when the forum was set up. Hopefully you can see why. I'm so used to seeing "unaided eye" these days that it's not an issue but maybe we should re-assess this particular phrase? Sorry if you feel you are bei...

Re: The romance that was Mars ..

Jeff I vaguely recall seeing a film possibly (?) -[...] hoards of people were escaping from cities taking to the hills. But I think the film ended with its two heroes a female & male) supposedly escaping by spaceship. Perhaps it was When Worlds Collide? A passing star (with orbiting planet) thr...

Re: Latest FREE Magazine, come on someone else join in. htt

Yes, nice presentation. That aside, I do fear sometimes that quality writing and content is going to disappear if no one is prepared to put their hand in their pocket to pay for it. Facebook and the like have sucked up all of the advertising revenue, so that is a dwindling source of income for publi...

Re: getting into it

Always loved "Collins". Quality products jammed with information. You don't say whether you are interested solely in the science of astronomy or observing, although many astronomy books, including this one, cover both. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Collins-Stars-Planets-Guide-Guides/dp/0007424426
