Like Vintage Space in all its incarnations? Consider becoming a patron! I've set up a Patreon account so I can raise money for things to make better content, like better software for editing, and even hiring professionals!

There's more on the story of the Orlan spacesuit and the Suitsat 1 mission on my blog, Vintage Space, over at Popular Science!

And there's loads of olde timey space to dig into on my blog, Vintage Space, too!

Like even older space? "Breaking the Chains of Gravity: the Story of Spaceflight Before NASA" is available now! You can order your copy on Amazon.

I'm also selling signed hardcover editions of my book on my website!
