The Smell of Space

The best description I can come up with is metallic; a rather pleasant sweet metallic sensation. It reminded me of my college summers where I labored for many hours with an arc welding torch repairing heavy equipment for a small logging outfit. It reminded me of pleasant sweet smelling welding fumes. That is the smell of space.

Eric Cook let me know about this.

It's so interesting I think I am going to actually go back to the beginning of its lifetime and go through all of the posts....

In Centauri Dreams, Paul Gilster looks at peer-reviewed research on deep space exploration, with an eye toward interstellar possibilities.

Names!

You know, I recognize a lot of usernames, but it's not always clear about what actual names people like to go by.

So here's an easy one: what should we be calling you?

(e.g., I'm Rick)

AYOW - What's your point of view?

Hope this is OK.

I got a question about Point of View (PoV) on one of my stories. I wanted to check my answer and ask how you handle this PoV thing?
