Status of Book and Column
- Parallax is planning to make my book a free download. Since I have finished writing
it, I believe it will be available this summer.
My monthly column in Nuts and Volts magazine will expand on the content in my
book. I also want it to introduce readers to what is currently happening in the world
of near space, both amateur and professional.
On an irregular basis, I'd like to include an introduction to each currently active
balloon group. I'd like each introduction to about 1/2 a page long. For every group
written up in the introductions, I'll pay $50 to the group. If your group would like to be
included, I need the following.
When formed (a mini history would be good)
Location of launches (the region will be fine)
Type of instruments typically flown
Point of contact
Photograph of the crew.
Use about 1/2 page of text in MS Word
You can send a photo and I'll ask to have it scanned. If it's already scanned, it has to
be high resolution. But I'd rather just send the photo in and let N&V scan it.
PS, if there's topics you'd like to see covered, let me know. I'll email a list of topics I
plan to cover
