StarDate: March/April 2002


In this March/April issue, StarDate celebrates the 30th anniversary of the launch of NASA’s Pioneer 10 spacecraft, which paved the way for future missions like the Voyagers, Galileo, and Cassini. Freelance writer Mark Wolverton tells you about Pioneer’s lasting legacy in “30 and Counting.” Also, executive director Damond Benningfield sheds light on three classic ground-based telescopes in service decades after they first stargazed in “Grand Old Telescopes.”
