The BIS Space Chronicle magazine was initially published as part of the Journal of the BIS (JBIS) family between August 1980 and July 1986.
After a gap of 15 years a re-launched Space Chronicle was introduced between 2002 and 2019.
From 2020, a new redesigned Space Chronicle became the premier space history publication within the BIS under the editorship of Dave Shayler.
