2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

As an officer in the local chapter of the National Space Society and a long-time space brat (my father was employed at the Space Center for the Apollo, Skylab and early Shuttle programs), I thank you for posting these memorials. Lest we forget.

I know that the Soviet space program also lost cosmonauts on space duty, but I regret to say that I cannot recall the names or dates off the top of my head. They deserve to be remembered as well.

What a horrible couple of weeks, historically, for NASA.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

I have often, when posting these each year, thought of that, and wondered how best to go about it. I'm open to suggestions, if anyone has any!

I don't have top-of-the-head recall on the names/dates either, so I had to look them up. They are Vladimir Komarov, who died when Soyuz 1 crashed after re-entry as a result of parachute failure, 24 Apr '67; and Georgy Dobrovolsky, Vladislav Volkov, and Viktor Patsayev, who died when the crew capsule of Soyuz 11 depressurized while preparing for re-entry, 30 Jun '71.

Well, I've just decided to put all five memorials in my calendar as recurring events, so the day before I should get a reminder.

Can I suggest also including Laika? She was a good dog.

I read about her on a list website not long ago.

I second this, very much, though please include an explanation when you do so that others will know what horrors she endured.

Do you think her Wikipedia article covers it adequately? That's my usual practice, to include the relevant Wikipedia link.
