Skylab was a space station launched and operated by NASA and was the United States' first space station. Skylab orbited the Earth from 1973 to 1979, and included a workshop, a solar observatory, and... More > other systems. Three manned missions to the station, conducted between 1973 and 1974 using the Apollo Command/Service Module (CSM) atop the smaller Saturn IB, each delivered a three-astronaut crew. On the last two manned missions, an additional Apollo / Saturn IB stood by ready to rescue the crew in orbit if it was needed. Skylab included the Apollo Telescope Mount, which was a multi-spectral solar observatory, Multiple Docking Adapter (with two docking ports), Airlock Module with EVA hatches, and the Orbital Workshop, the main habitable volume. Electrical power came from solar arrays, as well as fuel cells in the docked Apollo CSM. This calendar presents the beauty of the structures as the keepsake and memory for fans of space technologies in the holiday season and brand new year.< Less

Applying Triple-Bottom-Line Concepts to Future Space Station Design By Gary Booker
Paperback: $12.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The first space stations began to appear in orbit in the 1970's after the successful moon landings during the Apollo program. The Soviet Union launched multiple space stations, in which the United... More > States responded with the Skylab program. The development of Space Station Mir by the Soviet Union created a second space race to build space stations, which quickly became a very expensive endeavor. The Triple Bottom Line concept, developed by John Elkington in the late 1980's, is a model for corporate sustainability. In this book, Gary C. Booker discusses how Elkington's Triple Bottom Line can be applied to the development of space stations.< Less
X-Ray Rider 1 By Wayne Kyle Spitzer
Paperback: $10.15
Prints in 3-5 business days
It’s the dawn of the 1970s and everything is changing. The war in Vietnam is winding down. So is the Apollo Space Program. The tiny northwestern city of Spokane is about to host a World’s... More > Fair. But the Watergate Hearings and the re-entry of Skylab and the eruption of Mount Saint Helens are coming…as are killer bees and Ronald Reagan. Using the iconography of 20th century trash Americana—drive-in monster movies, cancelled TV shows, vintage comic books—Spitzer has written an unconventional memoir which recalls J.M. Coetzee’s Boyhood and Youth. More than a literal character, ‘The Kid’ is both the child and the adult. By eschewing the technique of traditional autobiography, Spitzer creates a spherical narrative in which the past lives on in an eternal present while retrospection penetrates the edges. X-Ray Rider is not so much a memoir as it is a retro prequel to a postmodern life—a cinematized “reboot” of what Stephen King calls the “fogged out landscape” of youth.< Less
