"Useful to space buffs and generalists, comprehensive but readable, Bob Zimmerman's Encyclopedia belongs front and center on everyone's bookshelf." -- Mike Collins, Apollo 11 astronaut


"The Chronological Encylopedia of Discoveries in Space is no passionless compendium of information. Robert Zimmerman's fact-filled reports, which cover virtually every spacecraft or probe to have ventured into the heavens, relate the scientific and technical adventure of space exploration enthusiastically and with authority." -- American Scientist

Repeal it! An Obamacare tax on medical devices has caused one company to cancel plans to build five new factories.

    If anyone with a degree in economics can comment on how that economic model works please feel free to explain it, Mr Krugman are you


    You won a Nobel prize in economics, right?
