NASA is partnering with Tor-Forge Books to develop and publish a series of science-fiction novels, the space agency announced Monday.

NASA announced the “NASA Inspired Works of Fiction” will be based on concepts pertinent to current and future agency missions and operations.

Scientists and engineers at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. will partner with Tor-Forge writers to help raise awareness and enhance public interest in science, technology, engineering and math.

“Ultimately this agreement will benefit the public, as we look for innovative ways to communicate our past and current achievements, while focusing on the needs of the future,” said Nona Cheeks, who directs Goddard’s Innovative Partnerships initiatives.

  1. Fantastic idea? Who will the writers be? Titles, plots?

  2. Is it a story where NASA prunes back its top-heavy structure – firing 99% of their useless ‘managers,’ and hires back the engineers and scientists rather than outsourcing everything to private contractors that treat the engineers and scientists like disposables? You know, fiction.
