The Invisible Shield of our Sun

Voyager 1 famously entered interstellar space back in the summer of 2012. In doing so, it left behind the protection of our Sun—a mighty shield called the heliosphere. What is the heliosphere, how is it created, and what does it shield our solar system from? Find out the answers to all these questions and more in this month’s column!

CSAS Member Jackets

CSAS Jacket-back

CSAS Members:

I have finalized all the information for a jacket order.  The jackets are the same that we have purchased over the last few years so there won’t be different looking jackets, other than Color.


On the Order Form, I have included all the information that you need to include. If there are any issues with the form, just contact me directly (contact information is on the form) and I’ll take down your information.  There a variety of colors to choose from and I included a link on the form, but just in case, here’s the link to the jacket and colors.   http://www.portauthorityclothing.com/servlet/portAuthority?cat=Port-Authority&style=J754



Jackets with club logo/back logo and name on right chest is $66.00 for sizes  XS-XL..
For  2XL, $69 and 3XL is 71.00
Shirts:  XS-XL is $26.50, 2XL $28.50 and 3XL $29.50


Order Form Instructions:

The form should calculate the total automatically.  If you are ordering a 2XL or 3XL size, please select the appropriate price in the drop down box.

If you are ordering more than one jacket/shirt, just contact Alan directly.


If ordering with Credit Card:

Please DO NOT enter your card information in the form and  send to me via Email.  You can call me directly and I’ll take the information over the phone or snail mail it.   I included the lines so you could enter and print to send or print for your records.



Please double check your order prior to submitting it to me.  You can make changes up until I place the order.  Once the order is placed, there won’t be any changes OTHER than a change to what name you want on the jacket.  Once the jackets are at the decorator then it’s too late.  Once jackets are ordered it takes appx 2 weeks to get them.


Since RMSS is upon us, I will close the ordering process on July 6, 2014.  Then I will submit the order on July 7th. If I need to extend the close date, I will but prefer not to because I’m leaving out of town on vacation on 7/8/14 for two weeks and will not be in cell coverage most of the time and access to email will be very limited.


If you have any questions, please contact me either via Email or Cell.  My information is below and on the order form.  Please address all emails with “CSAS JACKETS” in the Subject line.


Thank you…


Alan Gorski
