Robert Zimmerman at his best with a cool surprise!

Robert Zimmerman is a well known and respected space historian and author. He posts regularly at his website, http://behindtheblack.com, on space, science, and other matters relating to cultural and political issues. Mr. Zimmerman is also an award winning author who has written four books on the history of space exploration, all of which are still in print. This first book, GENESIS: THE STORY OF APOLLO 8, was published in 1998, and is now available as an ebook from either his webpage or from amazon.com, or any ebook vendor. His most recent book, THE UNIVERSE IN A MIRROR: THE SAGA OF THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE AND THE VISIONARIES WHO BUILT IT (Princeton University Press) tells the poignant tale of the men and women behind the telescope, and how many had to sacrifice careers and family to get it built. It also describes in detail the importance of Hubble both scientifically and culturally. More than any other instrument sent into space, the Hubble Space Telescope reshaped the human perception of our place in the universe. Robert’s previous book, LEAVING EARTH: SPACE STATIONS, RIVAL SUPERPOWERS, AND THE QUEST FOR INTERPLANETARY TRAVEL, is a must read! It describes in detail the history of manned space flight, post Apollo. Thus, it includes a lot of information about the Soviet/Russian space program that is unknown to most Americans. In 2003 American Astronautical Society awarded LEAVING EARTH the Eugene Emme Award as that year’s the best space history for the general public. Mr. Zimmerman has also authored THE CHRONOLOGICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DISCOVERIES IN SPACE (published by Oryx Press, now ABC-CLIO, 2000), a detailed reference book describing what was accomplished on every space mission beginning in October 1957 with Sputnik and continuing through December 1999. His work is published regularly in such magazines as SCIENCE, SKY & TELESCOPE, ASTRONOMY, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, FORTUNE, AD ASTRA, AMERICAN HISTORY, STARDATE, and many other major magazines. In 2000 he was co-winner of the David N. Schramm Award, given by the High Energy Astrophysics Division of the American Astronomical Society for Science Journalism. He can be reached at zimmerman at nasw dot org.

Centrifuge, commercial space, lot’s more with Courtney Stadd.

Courtney Stadd manages Washington Operations/Business Development for a 26-year old leading edge quality control/supply chain software company, Milwaukee-based TIP Technologies, Inc., which supports many of the leading defense/aerospace firms, including new space ventures. www.tiptech.com.  For the past 38 years, Mr. Stadd’s career path has been a mix of senior government leadership and corporate executive jobs – primarily focused on encouraging the emergence of a competitive commercial space marketplace.  In the government, he held senior policy and program management positions at the US Department of Commerce, the US Department of Transportation, the White House and worked directly for three NASA Administrators.  As an early Director of the Office of Commercial Space Transportation, U.S. Department of Transportation, he issued the first regulations implementing the 1984 Commercial Space Launch Act, licensed the first commercial rocket and was an early advocate for non-government spaceports. (He is a former member of the Boards of Space Florida and the Alaska Aerospace Development Corporation.)  In the commercial sector, he was associated with a range of pathfinder industry sectors including space transportation, GPS, high resolution satellite remote sensing, commercial inflatable space modules (Bigelow Aerospace).  He is also former Chair of Space Week, the UN supported event that includes more than 1,800 events in 73 countries and is officially described as “an international celebration of science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition.”  In both official and private capacities, he has been invited by various U.S. Congressional committees to testify on a range of high technology related public policy matters.  The primary theme in Mr. Stadd’s career in both the public and private sectors has been a focus on removing barriers to market-driven opportunities in aerospace-related technology areas.
