ASK Magazine Special Issue on Constellation

Lessons from the past are guiding NASA’s next step into the future as the space agency prepares to replace the Space Shuttle with an Apollo-style vehicle for human explorers.  ASK Magazine plans to release a special issue in 2007 about NASA’s new Constellation program to capture these lessons and new ones that are discovered as hundreds of people pave the way for the next generation of space exploration. From stories about crew exploration vehicle Orion’s design and build to the challenges of organizing cross-center efforts, you can help ASK provide the stories you need and want by letting our editors know what you think and by sharing your own stories. To submit stories or ask questions, contact Managing Editor Don Cohen or Technical Editor Kerry Ellis.
