If it's any consolation, Amy, every atom in your body was once in space  :)
Love the new hairstyle.

You got a nice collection of plastic there, Amy. Not a lot of women I know have taken up model making.
If you would like to go on making models without Pete eating the paint, you could try paper models. They often are better detailed than the plastic ones. Take a look at my collection on my weblog  for some inspiration. I make space models in all scales and sizes. http://paperkosmonaut.blogspot.nl/p/pks-gallery.html

It birthed the recreational hang glider, though.

We stopped going because we won the race, it was considered too expensive, and the American public was too distracted by other issues (Vietnam being the main issue)

I have always maintained that we would be better off now if the Space Race had not happened. We could have developed a much more cost effective system, and when we finally got to the Moon, we would be their permanently, not just a "Flags and Footprints" program that could not be maintained (too expensive).

Why exactly is my Twitter feed exploding with #Apollo14 tweets? This is why!

It seems as if everyone who develops a human spaceflight program has to dabble in the crewed-spy-satellite idea before eventually deciding it's not worth the effort.

Story
Introduction
I'm a writer and blogger - I blog at Vintage Space, study spaceflight history, and freelance whenever possible. I'm a space writer (aspiring to make that my professional title, somehow) because I love it. I finished a Master's degree in 2010 and realized that I don't like academic history and I don't want to be an academic historian. I've always wanted to write books and bring space science to the public in a way that's fun and accessible. 

I've been forging my own path for the last year. 

You can expect largely space-related posts from me: neat photos and archive movies from the early space age, cool articles, and a stream of updates from my blog. 

I moonlight as a personal trainer, but it's highly unlikely I'll be posting fitness tips. Unless they come from astronaut training logs. 

I'm also a Canadian currently living in the US, which has really brought out my accent, eh?

I write for a number of outlets, but the opinions on my page are strictly my own.
