17 April 1997
The Spring 1997 issue of Absolute Magnitude is out, containing an article on the Artemis Project by Ian Randal Strock. In this article, Ian summarizes the U.S. government's Apollo Moon program, contrasting it with the private and commercial Artemis Project. He goes on to describe Greg Bennett's dream in terms of costs, necessary steps along the way and long term benefits such as tourism, then goes on to describe Artemis Project's current status.
This issue also has stories by Barry B. Longyear, Cynthia Ward, Alan Dean Foster, William F. Wu, Rajnar Warja, Robin Wayne Bailey, and Shariann Lewitt, and an article by Allen Steele.
