The end of the year calls for a Skylab party, and enjoying food at the dinner table with good friends! From Dec. 28, 1973: “The three members of the Skylab 4 crew confer via television communication with Dr. Lubos Kohoutek, discoverer of the Comet Kohoutek. This picture of the three astronauts was reproduced from a TV transmission made by a TV camera aboard the space station in Earth orbit. They are, left to right, Gerald P. Carr, commander; Edward G. Gibson, science pilot; and William R. Pogue, pilot. They are seated in the crew quarters wardroom of the Orbital Workshop.” NASA image.

As 2016 winds down, I’d like to thank everyone who read this blog and other articles I’ve written throughout the last year. Here is a short list of some of the most popular things I’ve written during 2016, if you’d like to revisit those pieces:

I’ve taken a bit of a break over the last couple of months (I was so busy, and needed to devote time to personal stuff, no biggie), but I am looking forward to devoting my time to new projects in 2017. I was delighted to be asked to moderate the Skylab/ASTP panel at Spacefest VIII in June 2017, so I am really looking forward to that!

Stay tuned, and I wish you all a great New Year!
