FREE 2014 "Year In Space" Calendar

Share

Readers and Tweeters! Some lucky SpaceTwit is going to win a stunningly gorgeous 2014 Year In Space Calender, hot off Starry Messenger Press, published in cooperation with The Planetary Society.

And when I say SpaceTwit, I mean that in the nicest possible way. Because all you have to do to enter the contest is tweet about the new calendar to spread the word.


Designer Steve Cariddi created this large-format 2014 Year In Space Calendar, quite unlike any other ever published, to appeal to space enthusiasts of all ages, and the introduction was written by everyone's favorite Science Guy, Bill Nye!

This beautiful creation has his stamp of approval, and it's not difficult to see why. I got my hot little hands on it, and have been absorbed for hours. The photography is stunning, and every square centimeter is packed with colorful collages, planets, astronauts, space crafts, and profiles of famous scientists. The calendar grids feature moon phases, sky-gazing guides, space exploration milestones throughout history and fun space facts.

I WANNA WIN A SPACE CALENDER!

I'm moving next week and my whole place is going to geek-a-rific and nerdy with science things, and science fiction things, and my favorite sci-fi fandoms!

I'm going to go right now and tweet this, but I just hafta mention... if you take all the work out of making an entry (i.e., include a social media button for Twitter, one that has the required phrases already filled in - perhaps in a pop-up, whatever), you will get more entries (as if you need them, i know! LOL!).

Thanks everyone! Noting entries along the way!!

And thanks CJ, we may automate in the future. I did look at two pieces of free software that do click-tallies. However, they require people to enter email addresses, and I don't want people to think I'm "farming" them, because we aren't building spam lists, and never would.

And wow, once a contest is shared on some of the Facebook sites with like 50,000+ members, just keeping up with entries is like a marathon!! This way, we get the people who REALLY love space and want to participate, because they have to put a little elbow grease into it :)
