 Spaceflight for April 2012 had an in-depth anylasis of N.A.S.A.'s 2013 budget, a look at Asteroid - Next a proposal for crewed flights to the asteroid belt, and a history of the Intelsat III satellites. The evening talk at H.Q. was Perceived Anomalies in the Apollo Lunar Surface Images by Marcus Allen with a reply by Jerry Stone ( and a very interesting night it was ! ).
 J.B.I.S. for March/April 2001 contained 2 papers on the Chinese space programme taken from the symposium held by the B.I.S in November 2000 and amongst others a very detailed paper on the Soviet Unions "Star Wars " programmes  from 1961 to the fall of Communism by Claude Wachtel.
