A postcard or post card is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope. There are novelty exceptions, such as wood postcards, made of thin wood, and copper postcards sold in the Copper Country of the U.S. state of Michigan, and coconut "postcards" from tropical islands.

In some places, it is possible to send them for a lower fee than for a letter. Stamp collectors distinguish between postcards (which require a stamp) and postal cards (which have the postage pre-printed on them). While a postcard is usually printed by a private company, individual or organization, a postal card is issued by the relevant postal authority.

I'd love to hear your comments after you read the book, Nancy. And yes, the notion of a return to space travel may need a real marketing push.

That's really interesting, Rob - they really were visionary in their marketing approach. They could see long term and were willing to do so. It's all about relationship. No matter how much technology serves to dehumanize communication - we still crave relationship and always will. I bet their Likes would have been off the charts if Facebook was around back then. I am buying the book! Now all we need to do is transfer their ideas to the space program.

That's a great line from your son, Nancy. And I like the idea of a horse named Back to the Moon. 

As for the Dead, they had a huge following that moved with the band from city to city. And the band ran its finances like a business. There were roughly 250 employees. The Dead was also way ahead on the breakdown of the recording industry. They encouraged their fans to tape concerts and share the recordings. They figured it would deepen the fans relationship to the band and encourage live ticket sales.

Hmmmm...maybe I bought the wrong book. Think I'll hop on Amazon and take another look...it's all about community building nowadays regardless of your field! Maybe we can apply it here and  convince a race horse trainer to name a promising colt, "Back to the Moon." Just think - "Back to the Moon" triple crown winner named official mascot for U.S. space program! As my son would say, I must be butter 'cause I'm on a roll LOL

That's funny about the Dead, Nancy. But it makes sense. Before Jerry died, the Dead ran a very prosperous organization. For years, they were the highest grossing tour act. They knew how to build a community and sustain it for years.

Moon Dust

Lunar dust is pretty wicked stuff. It's abrasive, much like ground glass and very, very fine, so it easily finds its way through seals. Static electricity can also cause lunar dust to be attracted onto and into equipment. It's believed that some lunar equipment has been damaged in the past by lunar dust clinging to the equipment's reflective surfaces. Once covered in dust, the surface is no longer reflective and the equipment begins to overheat.

He certainly was in the 60s Rob LOL I almost fell over in Barnes and Nobles yesterday. I was looking through books on marketing and stuck in between Guerilla Marketing in 30 Days and the Ultimate Guide to Facebook advertising was Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead...No kidding! Maybe we should try some of their techniques to create a market for a viable space program!

Yes, it is ironic, Nancy. I guess the cliche is true, necessity is the mother of invention. Right now it's not necessary for the U.S. to explore space. We may see it as necessary if another country gets intrested. Although some still believe Frank Zappa is the mother of invention.

I find it ironic that the initial impetus for the space program was in response to Sputnik and the Cold War, and now the revival of the space program may be a reality due to Chinese efforts now becoming a campaign issue...our scientific endeavors are politically motivated, but I guess that is what it takes to get government funding.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
