Van Allen belts
« on: July 24, 2012, 10:44:50 AM »
Anyone, I was asked for a source for the famous Van Allen quote;

"The recent Fox TV show, which I saw, is an ingenious and entertaining assemblage of nonsense. The claim that radiation exposure during the Apollo missions would have been fatal to the astronauts is only one example of such nonsense."

-- Dr. James Van Allen

I'm pretty sure there was a topic some time ago, about the letter of Jay Windley as Clavius Webmaster.

I would love to read it again, but I'm unable to find it.
