The Year in Space 2008 Desk Calendar Makes Space Travel Affordable

ITHACA, NY--(Marketwire - October 19, 2007) - Space travel -- once the exclusive endeavor of astronauts and millionaires -- is now an affordable reality for private citizens (and gift givers) everywhere. Even those who are a bit reluctant to leave the comfort of their own home.

For less than the cost of a small cheese pizza, would-be astronauts can visit a different celestial destination every week of the year thanks to "The Year In Space" 2008 desk calendar, an award-winning 144-page weekly calendar brimming with images and information from the past, present and future of space exploration and astronomical discovery

Published in cooperation with The Planetary Society, "The Year In Space" takes its readers on an out-of-this-world journey while giving them a convenient way to organize their busy lives back on Earth.

The 53 stunning full-page weekly images represent the full spectrum of space exploration, from the Apollo Moon landings to recent construction on the International Space Station. Amazing planetary images by the Cassini Orbiter and the Mars Exploration Rovers are presented along with incredible deep space vistas taken by the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes. An informative essay accompanies every image, and each weekly calendar page is filled with historic dates in space history.

Discounts ranging from 25% to 45% off of the suggested retail price (and free U.S. shipping) are available to students, educators, NASA employees, and anyone reading this press release. The discounts also apply to employees, retirees, stockholders and affiliates of The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, the Coalition for Space Exploration,, and The Planetary Society -- all leading sponsors of the calendar.
