If, like me, you enjoy space related news - or you just never forgot the fun you had with model rocketry - you may be interested in the Kentucky Satellite (KySat) project, a new, hands-on initiative for Kentucky students. KySat is a public-private enterprise to design, build, launch and fly small satellites, with the goal of promoting space, engineering and science education in the commonwealth.
Over time I hope to enlist the first person perspective of the people involved in this exciting project, including the students, on the KySat blog, which I have been charged with editing. There should be plenty of news on private space initiatives, competition and astronomy as well.
You're invited to stop by.
