Spaceflight Vol 59 No 08 – August 2017

The Global Space Industry
In response to questions about the cost of space programmes and the benefits that accrue, Spaceflight introduces a new periodic feature called FACTCHECKER, which will address a specific issue in contention and attempt to find out the truth behind the headlines.

China’s First Space Station Plans
Renowned analyst of Russian and Chinese space missions, trajectories and projections, Phillip Clark examines the build-up to China’s first major space station complex and explains the various elements which will go into its as-sembly.

Women first?
Recent studies of physiological reactions to long duration space flight reveals that women are better equipped to survive the trip than men. Why is this so and what are the implications for protection from prohibitively high levels of radiation?

Stations in LEO – and beyond
In the second part of a two-part examination of future plans for human space flight goals in the next decade or so, we examine the options for maintaining stations in Earth orbit and for placing new facilities around the Moon.

Genetic gifts and a Mars mission
William Rowe MD looks at challenges faced by humans on flights to Mars and asks whether we have learned any-thing at all from the Moon missions of the Apollo era.

Talking to Icarus
Peter Milne takes time from his work on the Icarus interstellar study to report on challenges to communicating with space probes at our nearest stellar neighbours.

Spaceflight Vol 59 No 09 – September 2017

Living with the Legend
Author of the seminal work on NASA’s Space Shuttle, Dennis Jenkins describes how he came to follow the programme through work and, as a genuine enthusiast, create the massive three-volume history of its
design evolution and engineering.

An icon immortalised
Laurence Withers recounts a visit to the Kennedy Space Center where he missed a launch and came across the Space Shuttle Atlantis, more by mistake than by pre-planning, to impress and astound with its display of space artefacts.

Evaluating Mars Programme Designs
Stephen Ashworth has a particular view on Mars missions and judges a range of potential expeditionary modes to comment on the architecture being discussed by government agencies and commercial providers alike.

Successful Orion Abort Motor Test
Space historian and lecturer Joel Powell motored across to Utah to feel the power of the Orion abort motor, which was tested for the first time on 15 June.

Spaceflight Vol 59 No 10 – October 2017

A Target for Icarus
Peter Milne continues his occasional series on the Icarus interstellar project with a description of the evolving work to find a suitable destination for the spacecraft, finding several options but only one
preferred target.

“Houston, this is Honeysuckle…”
A veteran of more space missions than most people can remember, Hamish Lindsay describes the vital role played by Australia’s tracking stations during manned and unmanned flights, including personal
memories of the Honeysuckle Creek facility.

New Horizons for Space Modellers
Spaceflight asked Tony Radosevic to describe the motivation behind his new range of model kits depicting early launch vehicles, ICBMs and spacecraft and to tell us what he envisaged for the future of his
company in Australia.

Cassini - The Grand Finale 1: Steps onto the stage A historic mission is coming to an end and, in the first of a three-part series, Spaceflight looks back 20 years to the origins and extraordinary accomplishments of the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft, a triumph for international cooperation.

Visions of Space Revisited
Chris Starr played a major role in gathering together a stellar range of space art and speakers at Wells Museum during June and presents just some of the remarkable range of subjects and talent on display.

Spaceflight magazine remains the only easily obtainable publication for space enthusiasts worldwide.
Most of us do hope they will bring out a yearly DVD with the digital .pdf versions of all magazines since 1956, as Sky & Telescope did with their astronomy magazine from 1941 to 2017

I too am hoping for a pdf archive of their magazines. I wrote a lot of articles for them between the mid-1990s up until relatively recently. For personal reasons, I'd love to have copies of the older issues with my articles, because I'd like to create an archive of them.

I don't know if they have done anything to scan old issues. They've only been producing pdf copies for less than a decade.

As someone involved with the operations at the BIS, I'm happy to tell you that we are scanning Spaceflight magazine started back from the beginning.  With the help of Grif, it's becoming a lot easier.  We will also put together an annual version of PDFs, available as downloads.  Thanks for all the suggestions.
