What a fitting way to celebrate my 200th blog! Here is the story of how University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point journalism student Steve Walther started Astronomy magazine 39 years ago.
Thanks for the interesting story of how the magazine came about. I was 13 years old when I became a charter subsciber to Astronomy. I still have many of those old issues. I purchased my first telescope (a Criterion RV-6) from its advertisement in the magazine.
