An advertisement from a twenty-year-old NASA Tech Brief. It’s selling a single CD-ROM of data… programs, abstracts of reports, patent abstracts. All for the low, low price of $195. Seems kinda steep. Of course, today this could all be downloaded off Ye Olde InterWeb. Heck, I’d be pretty cheesed off about being charged nearly two hundred bucks just for some abstracts.

    Well, that’s how NASA Tech Briefs made their money — by charging for stuff that was freely available from NASA. The magazine was not a NASA publication.

    Is it still around?f

    Reminds me of the discs of shareware one used to be able to buy. (Or see up on the local BBSs back in the day.)

      Maybe this is available at some library?
