Siglerisimo gets spacey learnin'


Sitting down for my first day of the week-long LaunchPad event in Laramie, Wyoming. This NASA-sponsored event teaches writers how to correctly communicate spacey things. I’m going to be using this for research on THE CRYPT, which is shaping up to be one high-toned bitch of a story. Attendees include a great list of authors and general coolness:

Pat Cadigan

Carolyn Clink

Andy Duncan

Tara Fredette

Owl Goingback

N.K. Jemisin

Julie V. Jones

Marc Laidlaw

Ed Lerner

Brian Malow

Robert J. Sawyer

Gord Sellar

    Been there! (well, not there actually)

    Took Astronomy my freshman year of high school because I thought it would be an easy grade. Boy was I ever wrong! Needless to say, I didnt register for Astronomy II my junior year. I cant imagine the depth of material that you must be covering.

    The Stefan-Boltzmann lay

    Oh, and the Planck contstant, and Wien’s law. Holy shit. Astronomy is complicated.

    Looking forward to

    more of the crypt.  Good writers always research their topics well and you never let us down.

    and this can only make the storylines better!

    Awesome stuff…

    I didn’t know NASA offered stuff like this!  Very cool, indeed. Can’t wait to see how it’s applied to The Crypt.
