Loretta Hall's fascination with manned spaceflight goes back to NASA's Mercury Program, and she became intrigued with New Mexico's space history when she moved to Albuquerque in 1977. Combining those interests with her career as a freelance writer, she wrote her 2011 book, Out of this World: New Mexico's Contributions to Space Travel. She is a member of SouthWest Writers, the New Mexico Book Co-op, and the Historical Society of New Mexico; and she is a Space Ambassador for the National Space Society. Out of this World was named "Best New Mexico Book" at the 2011 New Mexico Book Awards. Her website NMSpaceHistory.com offers historic insights and current news about this state's role in space exploration.
