From Charles’ post:
The graphics ran this week in the Times of Huntsville, Ala., as a walk-up to the opening of a big Star Wars science exhibit at the NASA center there. Editor Kevin Wendt and design director Paul Wallen engaged me to research, write and design the graphics, with the aid of Times staff writers Lee Roop and Kenneth Kesnet, who interviewed NASA scientists and other Huntsville-area technological brains. The quotes they brought back formed the meat of our graphic centerpiece each day.
