The ASE AstroSat Challenge is a Hands-On Satellite Operating Experience for Select Students brought to you by the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) and Ardusat.

Have your students ever wondered what it would be like to operate a real satellite in orbit?  Maybe they’ve operated a remote control car, plane, robot, or maybe even an amateur rocket; but a satellite that’s orbiting the earth?  The ASE AstroSat Challenge is their chance!  Gather your students together, and if your team is chosen as one of the select ASE AstroSat USA Teams, you will have the privilege of collecting one week of data from a real satellite in orbit.  The data that you choose to collect is up to you and will be based on the experiment that you develop.

Go to http://www.ardusat.com/  to learn about the Ardusat satellite with which you will be working. 

The Second to None Coalition is a broad based citizen coalition comprised of aerospace and defense industry workers, active duty and retired military and space and defense advocates.  The Coalition was formed this year by the Aerospace Industries Association to give voice to the millions of Americans who believe that budget cuts to important investments in space, civil aviation, defense and STEM education are harming the national interest and slowing technological progress.  A goal of the coalition is to help preserve healthy R&D budgets to support innovation and the progress our community is helping to make possible.  Participants in the Coalition are given timely action alerts to enable them to communicate effectively with elected officials when critical space, aviation and defense issues are being debated in Washington.  Participation is solely voluntary and free of charge.  AAS members can learn more about the Coalition and its activities at: www.secondtonone.org.
