Section 15 PL OK.

For the record, I did hear light plosives through 13, 14, and about half of 15. The second half of 15 was much better. You may want to watch mic placement in future recordings to help lessen these. :)

Hi Tricia -

Here is Section 16 - I hope the plosives are fewer - I am back to using my regular mic now.

Thanks so much for letting me record these - I love space things and this was very interesting!

Here is section 3 because with a time of 20:14 it was shorter to edit than the other one:

Thanks, very interesting! Now I know what Lagrange Points are! :D
Cheers,

it is, but I need to go out now and don't have time for editing anymore.
You can wait with listening until section 2 is in. :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

Here's Section 11 - (length 32:46)
https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/humanspaceflightprogram_11_committee_128kb.mp3

FYI: I've been battling computer issues for the past week ("black screen of death" episodes, taking hours to boot up, "hard drive failure" messages). So far, it always seems to wake up and get to work at last, if I'm patient. I hope to get Section 12 to you in a few days, but just wanted to give you a heads-up about what's going on, in case I suddenly disappear from LV for awhile.

Thank you!

I had seen you post about your computer troubles elsewhere, so I was aware of them and was being patient. I hope you get 'em solved soon. :)

Section 11 PL OK!

Can you believe, I have listened to all these sections so far, and just now I've learned that MT stands for Metric Tons! :lol: (Others have just read it at M. T., which I've been okay with.)

Interestingly, the ISS is now set to be used until 2030, with more modules being attached every now and then. :D
And it was the most expensive structure ever built. :shock:
Cheers,
Ava.

Sections 2 and 3 PL OK!

(I was listening to 2 when you submitted 3.) :lol:

Yes, the LeGrange Points are interesting! And, thanks for looking up the current ISS schedule. I was wondering about that, too. 8-)

Sorry to be the last laggard here -- But now we can finally get this cataloged!
(So far, the computer has not actually died -- keeping fingers crossed!)

Ha! It's just that I have a really terrible memory for what abbreviations and acronyms signify. When I'm reading a paper book, I can easily flip back and check what it means. But in an audiobook, I'm often scratching my head in confusion. So I do appreciate it when the reader reads out the words instead of just the abbreviation. Unless, of course, the same acronym is used multiple times in fairly quick succession, when it would be unwieldy and long-winded to keep reading it in full, and easy enough to know what it refers to, and then reading just the acronym is good. Since that's how I like to hear it read to me, that's how I tend to read it to others!

Thanks! I don't know if I'll be able to PL it this evening. It might end up being tomorrow. :)
