Swift Newsletter

I used to work on the education and public outreach effort for Swift, one of NASA's most successful missions. One of the projects we started up was a regular newsletter that would keep folks up-to-date with news about the satellite, the science it did, and the team that keeps it going.

The new issue is out, and has an article by Neil Gehrels, the Principal Investigator of Swift, a report on the very first hardware glitch the mission had (after 991 days of operation in space!), and an essay about the education effort by Educator Ambassador Janet Moore.

The issue also features lovely artwork by Aurore Simonnet, though none of my own purple prose. But then, I've been a bit busy lately... :)

You can subscribe to the newsletter as well, and get updates when new issues come out.
