Space Educators' Handbook

The Space Educators' Handbook (designated as document number OMB / NASA Report Number S677) is a great resource. Using science fiction to teach space technology is a great idea.

From an editorial letter to AD ASTRA, Jun 1990: "Science fiction is not only the best way to predict the future, it has also helped to create the civilian space program. "Name any other method of attempting to forecast the future...including the work of professional scientists...Read their predictions five or ten years after they were written. Pitiful! Science fiction writers, on the other hand, have predicted virtually every aspect of our modern world - often 30 or more years before the events came to pass."
Ben Bova, Chairman, National Space Society Board
