"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
Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who had been sentenced to death for being a Christian, has gained refuge in the U.S. embassy while she and her family attempt to immigrate to the U.S.
It appears she was getting a lot of death threats, which in any Islamic country must be taken very seriously. Moreover from the details in this story it appears that Sudanese society is very much in favor of killing her, and it is only because of international pressure on the Sudanese government that she has not been so far been murdered, either by the government there or a mob.
