Self-Plug - Space News & Info website

Postby Kahlyla » Thu May 18, 2006 9:50 am

I have a new project! (And no, it won't take any time away from EQ - my recent absence has been due to pesky family visiting! /shakesfist)

Anyhoo, my very oldest and bestest friend has had a space news and information website for a little while now, and he's invited me to come on board as "News Director". This amounts to me seeking out, verifying and compiling current space news stories, doing some minor coding, adding pretty pics, rewriting leads and inserting commentary - witty or otherwise - where applicable. So basically, being an editor AKA my career goal. :D

I'm joining a wee team of two, so I actually get to contribute a fair bit. Yayy me! It's an unpaid position, but it's ideal experience and exposure, and rather fun too.

http://www.spacenow.ca/ is the site - the four most recent entries are mine - and we need hits! There's a forum on the site as well which needs some beefing up, if anyone here is interested in RL celestial navigation :wink: and would like to debate related issues. :D

One thing about that, some/most explorer missions are powered by fission already, not full reactors though. There's usually a protest already each NASA launch, CNN covers a few.
