    The History of Spaceflight Quarterly

    Published since 1992, Quest: The History of Spaceflight Quarterly is the only peer-reviewed journal exclusively focused on space history.  Each issue contains articles on the people, projects, and programs that have been part of more than a half century of civil, military, commercial, and international space activities. Enhanced with rare photos and images, Quest is designed to entice the most casual reader while retaining a level of quality essential for scholarly research. 

    History Resources

    To aid those performing space history related research, we have begun to collect information that would be of interested to students, academics, and researchers–including details on scholarships and prizes, archives and special collections, and space history related links. 

    The Archives

    A mission of the Space 3.0 Foundation is to collect, safeguard, preserve, and provide access to materials related to the history of spaceflight, with special emphasis on commercial and business materials; contained within our Space Business & Commerce Archives. The Archives hold 200+ linear feet of materials and nearly 1,000,000 pages in print and digital formats. We are building the capability to search for and digitally download much of this collection.

    Free and Fun

    Discover the world of space history via museums, educational materials, free publications, and book reviews as well as testing your knowledge of space via quizzes designed to challenge everyone from the basic space cadet to the PhD researcher.
