Growing up in the 80's, I'd write letters to TRW requesting their Space Log. I think these logs were monthly or possibly yearly produced and provided a comprehensive world-wide listing of launches.

One year at the Sea, Air, Space exposition at the National Harbor I picked up a Northrup Grumman logbook (since I believe that TRW was absorbed by Northrup Grumman). I'd like to know are these logs still produced, if so by whom, and how to get a copy?

Here is a 1960-2002 STL/TRW Space Log summary of each volume, written for myself. Update: Removed, contact the author if interested in reading.

Please note this paper has never been published anywhere by anyone, and is still copyright by me, no manner how poorly written.

Ed, thank you for providing some insights. It's too bad that officials at Northrop Grumman don't feel the need to continue the Space Log publication. It would be great to capture all the space events especially with all the commercial space program developments.

Chalk it up to 'going paperless' and the publisher knowing that you can get all of the information at the stroke of a keypad. I too collected many of the ones from the 70s and 80s; now they (and more recent copies) can go as high $30 on eBay.

All times are CT (US)
