Relaunch of Space Chronicle!

We are proud to announce the relaunch of Space Chronicle in it’s new format to match the style and sophistication of it’s sister magazine SpaceFlight.

After many months of working with different contributors, and with Dave Shayler as the new Space Chronicle Editor, offering an international approach to space history, the new look Chronicle now features:

  • Space history in depth and in context
  • Fully international, covering rockets, satellites, spacecraft and the early politics of space
  • Lifts the lid on space science and engineering, failed projects and obscure developments
  • 36 pages every issue in full colour
  • Your letters and reviews of new and second-hand space history books

We do hope that you are as excited as us about the new format and we believe that this will help drive the passion for Space History forward together with our ambition is to bring information from our rich history and archive to the outside world.  History is the heritage of the British Interplanetary Society and embracing this history will contribute to the success of the society going forward.

To see a sample edition please see our digital publications page here.  Chronicle will be published quarterly from now on, with editions dated January, April, July and October.

For all those members who already pay for Chronicle as part of their annual membership, you don’t need to do anything. For those who would like to include it with their subscription next year, please choose that option when you renew (renewals are possible from October 2020).

If you would like to purchase copies this year to see what it’s like, please go to our e-shop.
