Not Because It’s Easy – Video Preview

With the retirement of the Space Shuttle, members of the SpaceTaskForce went into the background – and went to work.

One of the completed projects we’re proud to present is a new book called Not Because It’s Easy. Here’s a preview of the book in trailer form!

“Not Because It’s Easy” is based on the history of Project Apollo – looking at the future of Space Exploration.

Not Because It’s Easy

A Novel by George C. Schellenger

One part metaphorical autobiography, one part rollicking adventure story, and one part self-help guide, Not Because It’s Easy is a trip to extremes you won’t forget.

For Agent Hunter Algier, it’s anything but easy: saving a charter jet from crashing into the suburbs of Northern Virginia; escaping the evil clutches of his ex-wife; tracking down three artifacts from Roswell, New Mexico; listening to a possessed billionaire moonwalker talk about Project Apollo; surviving a shootout on a golf course at one of America’s most prestigious country clubs; and coming face to face with a massive Tiger Shark at night.

That’s just the warm up.

The real adventure begins in an underground cave full of poisonous spiders somewhere in the Cayman Islands, ending in orbit somewhere above the planet. Success or failure on his mission could be the difference between reaching his ultimate goal or unwittingly aiding in the destruction of the free world.

Then again, for Agent Algier, it’s a typical week on the job.

Anousheh Ansari in her Orlan space suitFor the second podcast in conjunction with Spacevidcast.com, we decided to mix it up a bit and introduce the all female version! We tackle everything from what it’s like being a woman in the space industry to some of our favorite space shuttle stories. And for some fun we threw in a few stories about some trouble we may or may not have gotten into. With the likes of Jen Scheer, Kat Coderre and Amanda Stiles along with Spacevidcast’s very own Cariann Higginbotham, you know it has to be good.
