@PICKETYWITCH,
To help you we also need the clues. Some of us don't have the magazines. We just love to help you work them out with our suggestions.

@PICKETYWITCH,
1 ac is PERMISSION. By means=PER. Space flight= MISSION
20ac is TENSES. linguist ultimately is T + sense, form's an anagram ie TENSES. (verb forms)
