Excuse me but the Death of Interstellarum is news to me. I'm a member
of the NAA(Nurnberg Astronomischesarbeitsgemeinschaft). And I just
Translated a few new webpages into English for IS. I understand that
the Mag. will be changed a bit. But The last I heard it still
exists. One guy who works a lot on it ( Ron Stoyan) is on a Study
trip to Mexico for 6 months. But I'm sure its not dead.
