Help Needed For Book Project
« on: 01/11/2012 12:02 PM »
Hey everyone!  I am working on my second book, a ship's history of Endeavour, and I need your help.  I have come up with chapter titles for 24 of her 25 missions, but I cannot for the life of me think of anything for STS-72.  My titles are usaully very punny (e.g. "Radar Love" for STS-59), or have some sort of pop cultural reference ("The Real Thing" for STS-77 since she had a Coke dispenser on board for that mission).  If I use your title, I'll give you a specific shout-out in the intro.

Also, the working title is:  America's Greatest Endeavour: The Missions of Space Shuttle Endeavour, but I am open for suggestions in that regard as well.  Same shout-out applies.  Thanks!!!!

I can't think of any now but they did do a PBS special on that crew from start to finish.

Your Discovery book is amazing.

Title: America's Greatest Endeavour: The Missions of Space Shuttle Endeavour/

Usually the rule is not to have the same name twice. So maybe:
America's Greatest Endeavour: The Missions of the Youngest Space Shuttle - if it fits.

Endeavour says "Hai" ("yes" in Japanese)

Take it for a test drive, kick the tires, see if you like it.

I can try that route, especially if Koichi Wakata is a fan of Space Battleship YAMATO.

Another good idea, running that up the flag pole as I speak ;)
