RE: starship-design: Hello?
Hi, Paul, welcome aboard. Yes, the list traffic goes in spurts - a long
period of quiet followed by intense sets of 20-30 emails per day. Most
people here also have periods when they're terribly busy.
Early on there were five lists, one for each part of the starship design
- one of the lists was devoted to human issues.
Way at the bottom of the list (weeks 1-10) you'll find the "Human
Factors and Crew Selection" archives.
Uh oh. I just tried it and the links are dead. I'll see if I can find
the newsletters and upload them. I'll let you guys know when it's
