Space Age Forum

We have both been fascinated by space exploration since we were teenagers. As magazine editors, for many years we've had a project (usually on the backburner, alas) to start a magazine devoted to space exploration and life in space. The idea was not to produce another magazine focusing on the technical side of space travel - that already being covered by periodicals like the British Interplanetary Society's magazine Spaceflight - but instead to publish something like a cultural magazine of the space age. There would be features, commentary and debate on all aspects of life in space. There would be interviews with astronauts, news about launches, fashion advice on the best spacesuits, discussions of the ethical dilemmas confronting humanity as it contemplates expansion beyond this planet, features on space tourism, space economics, space industry, space stations.

That magazine still hasn't happened, due to the usual constraints of time and expense, but we hope that this forum will at least provide a place where space enthusiasts can enthuse! That's good enough as an end in itself, but maybe if a bunch of people with good ideas get together here then we can see if there is indeed scope for a cultural magazine of the Space Age!

Best wishes,

Bora Dogan & Rick Lewis

The next stage of development for the Space Age website is to put up some articles. We have a couple almost ready to post, but welcome offers of short articles on any aspect of space exploration or space colonization.
