Science for Sci-Fi Writers

Hey all,

Looking to firm up the science behind your space opera?  Check out Launch Pad Astronomy and get a chance to pick up some real space science.

I am not affiliated with this program in any way.  I heard about it through one of my publishers, but since I write Fantasy rather than Sci-Fi it’s less useful for me.  If it’s something that could help you, check it out.  The deadline for applications is March 1st.
