    I'm sure there are plenty of copies of that issue to go around.
    Incidentally, the 1996 issue--the second-last issue of Space Log--was
    probably one of the best. Besides spacecraft details for the 1996
    launches, it carries the colossal Summary Log of Space Launches
    1957-1996: forty years of launches, one by one in chronological order,
    failures as well as successes. Although this kind of information can
    be found in several places on the Internet and on CD-ROMs, I don't
    know of anyplace else that it has been published in book[let] form.
    (Now, of course, there are 10 more years of launches to tabulate.)
    It's a keeper, if you're at all interested in satellite and
    spacecraft.
