If you're a space fanatic like me you'll want to check out Robert Zimmerman's website Behind The Black and bookmark it for your daily reading.

Zimmerman, a prolific writer and expert on space technology and science, posts frequent articles on topics ranging from the latest space exploration and technology news, to commentary on politics, coronavirus, and much more. Frequent subjects include SpaceX and the ever expanding the competition between private space tech/launch companies and governments, details on the newest Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images, etc.

The articles are completely free, and the option is always available, if you desire, to make a one-time contribution or opt for a subscription to help support the site.

Zimmerman has also written many fantastic books, among them: Genesis, the Story of Apollo 8which I have read twice and cannot recommend highly enough. The book is a wonderful, fast-moving read, containing "down-to-Earth" explanations of the science involved, and the fascinating problem solving history and technology advancements that surrounded the Apollo program, how the program was affected by world events, and how it continues to heavily influenced the world since. It's a must-read for space fans, and should be required reading for schools everywhere.

Check out Zimmerman's site Behind The Black, you'll be glad you did!
