    Default MEBAY: "Space Frontiers," "Shuttle/Comet," "Secrets of Space"



    Okay, I've got three more bits up for sci.space.* auction. This auction
    is like the last one... send me an e-mail with your bid, I'll let you
    know if you're in the lead. If the winning bidder rats out and doesn't
    pay up (like happened on one lot the last time), the runner up gets it.
    Bidding ends at 6 PM (PAcific time) next Saturday evening (Oct 15). I
    take checks and PayPal, and if you're really trusting of the postal
    system, cash. Please note that due to spam issues, you'll need to trim
    the reply-to address a little. Buyer pays shipping.

    First up: "Proceedings of the Shuttle-Based Cometary Science Workshop."
    http://www.up-ship.com/Stuff/Ebay/8-8-03c.jpg
    Softbound proceedings of a conference held November 1976. Ex NASA-Ames
    library copy, in good shape, 260 pages. A number of papers on the
    science and engineering of Shuttle-based astronomy... contents:

    Bidding on this starts at $10.00.

    Next up is "Exploring the Secrets of Space," by I. M. Levitt and
    Dandridge M. Cole, Prentice Hall, 1963 (2nd printing, '66).
    http://www.up-ship.com/Stuff/Ebay/8-8-03f.jpg
    This is a hardbound book (no dustjacket) that covers the basics of the
    how and *why* of space travel. It's a spiffy book that shows one method
    of sizing launch vehicles and spacecraft... chapters on chemical
    rockets, advanced propulsion, staging, in-space refueling, life in
    space. It's a good early sixties book for primilinary vehicle
    performance and sizing, as well for the "philosophy" of spaceflight and
    aview of the future of man in space.

    And as you can see here, it's a fascinating book:

    Bidding starts at $20.00.

    Last up is a lot of "Space Frontiers" magazines from the late 1980s.
    These magazines were editted and published by Ted Talay, then an
    engineer at NASA-Langley, and were generally 20 pages long. Well
    illustrated (B&W) with modelers in mind. Also provided information on
    currentl launches and relevant publications. "Space Frontiers" was a
    small but beloved publication, and was an inspiration for the original
    "Quest" space history magazine, as well as for "Aerospace Projects
    review." Up for auction are Mar-April 87, May-June 87, Jul-Aug 87,
    Oct-Nov 87, Jan-Feb 88, Ap-May 88, Jul-Aug 88, Oct-Nov 88, Jan-Feb 89,
    July-aug 89, Sept-Oct 89. Topics included such things as German WWII
    space launchers, the Collier's series, the Delta II, and several
    reusable and expendable private enterprise alunch vehicles under
    development at the time. These are the original magazines, not copies,
    and are in good shape. They can bee seen (and are being seen) at:
