1 November 1986 Editorial: When Is A Special Issue Not A Special Issue?
Author Affiliations +
Nearly a year ago, Dr. Henry Lum agreed to serve as guest editor for the November 1986 special issue of Optical Engineering, the subject of which was to be "Automation and Robotics for the Space Station." Dr. Lum, who its Chief of the Information Sciences Office, Aerophysics Directorate, at NASA Ames Research Center, felt that he would have no difficulty obtaining a dozen or more excellent papers related to this very interesting subject. However, due to circumstances beyond his control, only three suitable papers were forthcoming, the consequence of which was a severe dilution of the "special issue." I would like to offer my apologies to the authors Iof those three papers, who fully expected that their papers would be' art of a significant collec-tion Iof papers on the chosen subject, and I'm certain that Dr. Lum joins me iin doing so.
