Write/Edit for New Mars Journal (Newmars.com)

We are going to open up the main site (Newmars.com) to allow anybody to write an article.

I am working on two articles right now.  One is a wrap-up of the convention, and the second is a report/narrative of what the JPL tour was like.  Both will have lots of photos.

We need to recruit somebody to solicit new articles and post them.  This person will have an "Editor"-type title and will get a Mars Society email account and official sanction.  If you are interested please email me!

Also if you have an idea of article you could write, or somebody else could write, post it here.

This is my favorite one.  Dana Melton (James' Melton's wife) was a sweetheart.  They were on the JPL trip also.  I invited them to come to Seattle sometime, I would give them a tour of Microsoft or Boeing.

Plus Zubrin looks like a teddy bear

She looks so excited and happy to get the photo for sure.

I see in the poster in the back a child walking on Mars, we can only dream to be able to see that day...

But can they make the passes any larger?.....

Some one needed to give this guy a nudge as he appears to be sleeping while Zubrin is speaking
