About

Hi! my name is jenny and i’m the writer behind go for landing.

I’m from the south-west of England and am currently studying part-time for a Masters in Museum Studies, having graduated with a First Class BA in History in July 2019.

I completed my dissertation on how the American press covered the Space Race between 1957 and 1963 and had such a fun time doing research for it and learning about the personalities and stories of the people involved that I decided to set up this blog as a way of continuing that.

I’m primarily interested in all things to do with NASA and the Cold War, but took modules at university that covered everything from Victorian telecommunications to ethnopolitics in 19th and 20th century America.
