Tales of the STIP!

Geeked on Goddard reports on project at the NASA Science and Technical Information Program (STIP) intended to remind us about its on-line archive of technical reports.  STIP is creating faux pulp magazine covers for various projects from NASA's history, starting with the 1966 technical report, Feasibility study for lunar worm planetary roving vehicle concept (NASA-CR-66098). These are fun, but I don't know how effective they are.  It seems only people who are well aware of the the NASA Technical Reports Server will see the covers.  Unless maybe you read the Dungeon.
