"Well, in reading the story earlier today (yes, Tom's post sent me scrambling), I found that both Hildesheim and Münster are towns in Germany. The emphasis or focus of the story is Münster . . . billed as being then-mostly…"
This photo takes me back. I, for one, am not surprised that it was used by multiple publications. It was, after all, the first image expressly made to examine the volcanoes on Io. Notice how it is heavily overexposed to…"
"This cover image and the story of Voyager I's remarkable journey gets a prominent referral in the Society's still new book, The Covers: Iconic Photographs... (2014), on the page spread 162/163, where the January 1980 NGM cover makes…"
35 January's ago ... I was perusing some Smithsonian magazines in my collection this month, and came upon this letter to the editor, on page 18 of the March 1980 issue ---> Dear Sir: To my surprise, the January Smithsonian and the January National Geographic carried identical pictures on their covers. In my 60 years I do not recall seeing the same cover pictures on two national magazines in the same month. How did it happen?Frank BursonBrandon, Florida [Editor reply]: It was pure…See More

unoffical occupation: since 2009 I've been care-giving for 3 of my quite ailing Grandparents...as a live-in helper (in every way conceivable).
Life Member of The National Geographic Society. I became very interested in the Society itself during the 1988 year when I was but 10. Became a proud member myself for my 12th birthday, January 1990. At last I didn't have to wait for my Grandparents to be done with their issues and give them to me : )

If anybody is interested in conversation threads about anything & everything National Geographic, you can see this link. NOTE: It is NOT for advertising or placing want/sell posts.....it was started by a Collector-Dealer in 2007 for serious and regular NGS-oriented "discussions" !
Sounds great Scott,
I always enjoy talking with NG collectors & hearing about their experiences. I'm retired and available to chat quite often. I've been a NG member & collector since 1978. Hope to chat soon.
I actually just discovered this website a few weeks ago. It's very cool - I don't really have any particular interests in NG. I've been a fan my whole life, my Dad has an extensive collection and now I'm working on mine.
I haven't been on the site for a few weeks, went to the Custer WI Renewable Energy Fair on Friday. Many plans will be in the following months & years and will try to make an imact with alternatives. For Geographics, it will take a while to sort everything out and start with major projects.
