common look. All the headlines appear in a red bar with a product

targeting company R&D labs, universities and government facilities.

and energy analysis systems. A photo of the International Space Station
was used as a design theme on the cover of the muliti-fold mailer
because a modified version of a Pfeiffer Vacuum gas analysis system
is scheduled to be used on the space station. A NASA anti-gravity
pen was used to increase response and solicit demonstrations.
This mailer has been printed twice and has been used in 2002 and 2003.
