REALSPACE: Just a little blurb on Asteroid Mining

Asteroid mining is one of those things that comes into and goes out of fashion regularly and quickly. Here's a little blurb from Wired about its economic viability, and it plays in with my ongoing rant about how Space should be a commercial concern first, and a scientific one second. Worth a look-see if you've never thought about this, then come back here and we'll chat.

Republibot 3.0 (aka Kevin Long) is now on Smashwords

Up until now all of the books by R3 have only been available on Amazon/Kindle. There are, however, several other E-reader formats for virtual books and he's basically been neglecting them up until now due to his massive technical ineptitude. (<-R3 wrote that) That's done, though. As of this morning, both his anthologies were posted on Smashwords! We've even dropped the price a buck in celebration! Smashwords publishes formats for iPod/iPhone, B&N Nook, Sony reader, and most any device using the Android O/S.

EDIT: THE NEW BOOK "It's Not Rocket Science" IS NOW ONLINE ALSO. See inside for links and more details.

EDITORIAL: Why are we turning our backs on space?

Republicans started the American Space Program (Eisenhower, specifically), but I realize the Democrats (Kennedy, specifically) really started the space race going, and the Republicans (Nixon, specifically) ended it, but have you noticed a trend since then?
