AMSAT-UK Colloquium attracts ESA support

AMSAT-UK's 2006 Colloquium, which is to be held from 28-30th July at the

This opportunity is open to any University student presently studying in one 
of the ESA member states or one of the ESA cooperating states. Students who 
are interested in applying for this sponsorship should urgently contact 
Tor.Viscor@esa.int giving their details and information about their proposed 

Additionally ESA have approved the attendance of  Neil Melville - the SSETI 
Express project co-ordinator. Neil will be giving a full report on the SSETI 
Express experience and the "Knowledgebase" that has been created as a 
result. He will also be discussing the establishment of an internet linked 
World-wide network of University and radio amateur groundstations to help 
support future launches of satellites in the amateur satellite service.

AMSAT-UK is very pleased to receive this support from ESA as this will 
further assist towards promoting the synergistic relationships that already 
exist between the two groups of space enthusiasts.
