"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

An evening pause: In memory of those who died on D-Day, to keep us free.

Hat tip Jim Mallamace.

    John Batchelor on his radio show seems pretty annoyed with Europe’s current reaction to the D-day. He’s a bit too romantic to be realistic about Europe. Now maybe we’ll see Macron unite with Putin as the only possible allied against the US.

    Here’s a dramatization of a D-day in the east in 1920, when Poland fended off the Soviet invasion of Europe to exterminate Christianity. Together with some voluntary American soldiers. Quite realistic and “great” battle scenes even if the gory detail of the wounded is a bit too much for me, I warn you.
