Canadian Space Geodesy Forum (CANSPACE)
The Canadian Space Geodesy Forum (CANSPACE) is a computer-communications-based information dissemination and discussion group that was established several years ago as an aid to improving communication among scientists and engineers working with the techniques of space geodesy. Among topics discussed are the Navstar Global Positioning System (GPS), Glonass, Transit, very long baseline interferometry, satellite laser ranging, satellite altimetry, etc. Daily postings of information bulletins include GPS satellite constellation status reports (Department of Defense Notice Advisories to Navstar Users) and reports of solar and geomagnetic field activity. Information concerning satellite launches and orbital elements is posted regularly. Although initially intended to link Canadian geodesists and geophysicists together, CANSPACE now has a wide international subscriber list and is open to all. Questions are particularly encouraged. - Categories: mailing_list

Federation of Galaxy Explorers (FOGE)
The Federation of Galaxy Explorers is incorporated in the state of Maryland as a 501(c)3 non profit organization. The organization seeks to inspire and educate kids in space related science and engineering. The FOGE established a pilot program in conjunction with Rock Creek International School in Washington, DC, and Prince William County school district in Virginia. Our first training program for parent volunteers was supported by the NASA Globe program and was held in July 2002. - Categories: education full_text mailing_list space
