I received the following e-mail from Vandenberg AFB's 30th Space Wing Media Relations department a couple weeks back, and I will now get to realize a life-long dream of mine:

Launch Photography

James,

I run the 30th Space Wing Media Relations (among other things) and also am the voice of our Facebook page. I see your photos and updates on there loyally every launch and other events. If I could get some background info on you would you be interested in coming out and taking pictures of base as a guest of ours with our media for the 23 February launch or the 12 April launch? Your thoughts?

Lt. Ann Blodzinski


I chose the Atlas V NROL-34 launch on 12 April as the one I want to photograph.  I was so shocked when I got this e-mail I couldn't believe it.  Just had to share, as I think it'll be an awesome experience!

...water is life and it is out there, where we intend to go. I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man or machine on a body such as the Moon and harvest a cup of water for a human to drink or process into fuel for their craft.

You need to get one of these:
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/products/h2/

It records in real time with 4 microphones, for true DTS compatible surround sound. I have heard stereo recordings of launches, but not "quadraphonic" or with postprocessing,  5.1 Surround.

Drop them a line, maybe you can get one to evaluate?
