Amazon Kindle: The Astronauts’ and Cosmonauts Library on the ISS
© DanShaw.com

Abstract: Suggests promoting WNRF and spiritual fiction by instigating a Kindle (electronic book) be sent to the International Space Station, and other related parties.

I suggest that Amazon donate 4 (or 5) of the devices, all identically loaded up with the astronauts’ and cosmonauts’ favorite books.

? What are the astronauts’ and cosmonauts’ favorite books?
I could begin making a list, and contacting astronauts whose reading favorites are not already public record.

Two would go into space, one to stay, and one to return, autographed by the astronauts and cosmonauts, to be auctioned off, with the proceeds to benefit Space Academy.

One Kindle would reside at the Space Academy.

Another would be donated to the Smithsonian Institution, to be placed either in the Air and Science Museum, or in the Publishing Technology exhibit.

One of the Kindle’s would go to WNRF-us-me for publicity, to manage for public relations-events and marketing purposes, a kind of traveling exhibition.

IONS, astronaut Edgar Mitchell’s Institute of Noetic Sciences, is a publisher and he-they would doubtless be interested in such a project.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos would get product placement that is literally ‘out of this world’.

NASA may be interested in publishing a book based on this idea.

Action Steps:
Research astronauts’ favorite books.

Space; science fiction; NASA
