‘Spaceflight News’ was launched by editor Nigel Macknight as a follow-up to his partwork ‘Shuttle Story’. Initially published bi-monthly but monthly from April 1986. The magazine covered past and present manned US and Russian space missions – especially the Shuttle, and also NASA’s aerospace research programmes. Unfortunately, circulation was badly hit by the grounding of the Shuttle after the Challenger disaster, and the consequent lack of new missions to write about. The first issue was dated October/November 1985. Each issue comprised 46 pages with many b+w and colour photos. Ceased publication in 1991. * A subsidiary of Key Publishing Ltd.
