NASA and Tor–Finally Going Steady

NASA and Tor–Finally Going Steady

Let's be honest, we've all been waiting for this announcement for a long time.

NASA and Tor have been making eyes at each other for years, insisting it was only mutual respect. Well, the rest of us were getting sick of it. Thankfully, they broke down and admitted they like like each other. 

Here are a few highlights from the press release:

In an effort to introduce, inform and inspire readers about NASA, the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. has partnered with Tor-Forge Books to develop and publish a series of science-fiction-themed books. 

Referred to as "NASA Inspired Works of Fiction," these books will be based on concepts pertinent to current and future agency missions and operations.

Many people who work in science and technology often credit science fiction as a significant inspiration for their career choices.

NASA will pair scientists and engineers with Tor-Forge writers to help raise awareness and enhance public interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). NASA's goal is to attract and retain students focused on STEM studies, strengthening the agency and the nation's future workforce. 

Here's to a very exciting and unapologetically nerdy union! We wish you only happiness in your deep future.
