One informal analysis suggests short first names are strongly correlated with higher salaries. They are bad in several ways, and modern glyphs are little better. For example, v and w, or m and n.
The most striking examples are those novels whose authors I directly assisted.
But there are a few creations I've run across that did get the science correct without any help from me. I would like to recognize such creations by awarding them my totally superfluous Atomic Rockets Seal of Approvaltm. Award winners can print out the seal on their ink-jet printers and stick it on their refrigerators, next to their children's kindergarten paintings.
But readers are advised to take a look at these creations, as they are something special There are additional award winners collected on the Atomic Novel page and the Atomic Art Gallery pageplease check them out as well.
In no particular order, the awards are: Alternate History Man Conquers Space Man Conquers Space is David Sander's project to make a pseudo-documentary movie about the history of space flight, if things had happened as predicted by Colliers.
Absolutely brilliant, the trailer will take your breath away. And if you dreamed about those ferry rockets when you were a child in the mid 's, the trailer may bring a wistful tear to your eye.
It did to me. A fascinating "what-if" future of space exploration with professional quality computer graphics. Torch War The man who goes by the name Grimjier of Hobby FuZion is working on a tabletop game played with little plastic spaceships called "Legend of Sol: This is set in an alternate history where the North American Space Command and the Supreme Soviet Cosmo forces battle in space in the far flung future year The battleships are nuclear pulse Orion drive.
I talk more about Torch War here.
In other words, he is a rocket scientist. Ian Mitchell is a physics Ph. It diverges from our history at the point where the Apollo program comes to an end, and in our time line NASA decides to go with developing a space station, instead of the Space Shuttle.
The consequences of not having a reusable launch vehicle in the 's are interesting, to say the least.
I assisted the team with some space related data. In exchange Michel Van immortalized me on the moon and I was Tuckerized. But recently he has been applying his encyclopedic knowledge to crafting an alternate history that he calls "Imagining Another Apollo". Last I checked it was up to part 5, it is interesting reading.
Zerraspace has designed a combat spacecraft that impresses the heck out of me. Hajj said he studied this Atomic Rocket website in the process of designing this craft, and it shows. Frankly I cannot see any design problems at all with it, everything is covered.
Science Fiction Novels Introduction Please note that this page is for novels that have the Atomic Rocket seal of approval, but the authors created the novels with no help from this website.
Other novels where the author acknowledged being helped by this site can be found here. In Revolution Born Veteran Atomic Novelist Thomas Mays teams up with Chris Kennedy to craft a novel that is both scientifically hard yet full of rocket-busting excitement.
The Mutineer's Daughter gives us a father-daughter pair of protagonists with an iridium-hard determination to smash through everything the universe throws against them in order to be reunited. This is the first book in the In Revolution Born series. But x-ray detonation lasers are the least of their worries.
They both will face incredibly hard choices as both father and daughter face a coming-of-age ordeal. Many readers besides me have noted the novel has the rare welcome flavor of classic Heinlein juvenile novels, not that those were just for young people, perish the thought.
This can be enjoyed on multiple levels by all ages. Yes, the ships have a faster-than-light drive, but Thomas Mays has not one but two degrees in physics. His drive is reasonable, and has the ramifications carefully thought out.
Corsair Corsair is the new novel by noted author and game designer James Cambias review. It is available in hardcover, ebook, or audio book format.
Cambias has managed a way to make the vintage old SciFi troupe of Space Pirate actually work in the real world. All it requires is: You may have noticed I've used quite a few quotes from him in various parts of this website.
It is really hard to find a person more qualified to write a novel with a "Atomic Rocket" levels of science-hardness than a person who is one of the experts used as a source for the Atomic Rocket website.
I did receive an unsolicited autographed copy of the hardback from Mr. Cambias along with some praise that made me blush.Dartmouth Writing Program support materials - including development of argument.

Rob Davidoff has a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Aerospace. In other words, he is a rocket scientist.
