New Addition to the Blogroll

Just added Matthew Bowes’ new blog Space Liberates Us! to the blog roll. It looks promising. Of course I’m biased because he commented positively on my MSS Update blogpost. 🙂

The following two tabs change content below.

    Congrats to Matt, and thanks for pointing out another great space related weblog! (I definitely have to say that I’m jealous 😉)

    I’m definitely going to add it to my blog roll as well (which may be getting cluttered despite my attempts to organize it).

    Note to Jon: You should consider putting up your Masten Space Blog on your site via feed wise, as that would help draw attention to what your company is doing more than a simple link.

    (you can have your blog display it’s content via RSS on this site).

    added today links to your Blog on ghostNASA and My Articles directory:

    That might be a good idea. How would I go about doing that? As it is though, I typically post links and pictures whenever we put up a blog post on the MSS site. But I guess it couldn’t hurt.

    in 2002 the X-38/HL-20 ISS-rescue-vehicle project was deleted, but (I think) a simple, small and reliable vehicle for rescue (from ISS, Shuttle and everything manned will fly in space) is absolutely necessary

    then, I suggest to use the Soyuz Reentry Module to build a new (long-life) rescue-vehicle called “MORV” (Multipurpose Orbital Rescue Vehicle):

    Unfortunately I’m going to have to follow Clark Lindsey’s lead on this. Please keep comments at least somewhat relevant to what’s being discussed here. If you really want to post about your own topics, blogger is free and really easy to use.

    Hey Jon,

    Here are the instructions for adding the RSS feed of Masten Space Blog to your site.

    1) Log into Blogger and visit your dashboard.

    2) Find your blog Selenian Boondocks, and search for the Layout link underneath (and click on it).

    3) It should bring you to what Google calls the Page Layout section.

    At the top of your sidebar, there should be a Add a Page Element link. Click on it.

    4) A window should appear with many different page elements to add. Find the one that says Feed which should have an explanation like this:

    Add content from a site feed to your blog.

    Click the Add to Blog button underneath.

    5) Put in the Masten Space Blog’s feed in the space provided and then click Continue.

    6) Blogger will allow you to display up to five feeds at a time.

    *I think the rest from here is self explanatory.

    I hope I didn’t offend you with my “overly simple” explanation, but I find when dealing with new technology (especially web stuff) that its sometimes the simple explanations that are the best.
