Welcome to our corner of cyberspace, we are glad you are here.
Supernova Communications was originally founded as the parent company of Knight Times, a 10,000-circulation twice a week newspaper that served the University of Central Florida and neighboring community colleges. After a three-year run the brand went dormant, but the energy behind the idea never fully dimmed.
After a hiatus of several years, the Supernova brand was reactivated in January 2013 with the creation of the website Ballparksbeachesandbeyond.com. Triple B, as it is affectionately known, serves as a site dedicated to documenting observations from the cheap seats, the beach seats and everywhere in between.
TripleB was created with the stated goal of combining a love of baseball, going to the beach, and looking towards the heavens as a child of the Space Program.
In subsequent years, other websites were added to strengthen and expand the Supernova Communications brand. With each new site we continued the tradition of telling stories that began so long ago when I was a much younger version of myself.
SouthpawMusings.com focuses on my love of baseball by covering the world of baseball one pitch at a time proving that you can take the Orioles fan out of Baltimore but you can’t take the Ballpark out of the fan.
JRyanAnderson.com is a site that serves as a catch all for the other two sites. In addition to including writings from the other two sites it occasionally includes some of my academic writings when I am feeling extra scholarly.
TheAerospaceHistorian.com is the latest addition to the Supernova Communications orbit and is by far the most ambitious project undertaken since starting a newspaper from scratch in the dining room of a student apartment so many years ago.
Launching on March 6, 2022, the Aerospace Historian will tell the stories of the people and places that brought Aerospace to life. We are working hard behind the scenes to being you a unique perspective on the history of Aerospace from the men and women who made what many thought to be impossible possible.
Through weekly podcasts, videos and blogs on the history of Aerospace told from the perspective of the people who made many of the highlights of American Aerospace happen, our goal is to ensure that the past of Aerospace is captured for future generations.
In addition to talking to the people that made early Aerospace come to life, we will provide eyewitness reports from historic launch facilities that have been abandoned in place and left to fight the losing battle against the harsh elements that are decaying more and more of the history each day.
Whether covering the world of baseball or the quest for the moon our commitment to strong journalist principles and storytelling remains constant.
Through our multiple sites and platforms there really is a story for everyone. Welcome to the world of Supernova Communications. We are glad you are here and look forward to telling the stories that move and excite you.
