By Wamsteker W., Albrecht R., Haubold H. J.

While the 1st United Nations/European area corporation Workshop for easy area technological know-how used to be deliberate to be held in Bangalore, India (1991) at the invitation of ISRO, few of these concerned may well anticipate exact discussion board used to be going to be created for medical discussion among scientists from constructing and industrialized countries. because the layout of the 1st workshop used to be on objective left unfastened with time for shows, operating classes, and plenary discussions, the workshop used to be left to discover its personal dynamics. After a decade of UN/ESA Workshops, this booklet brings jointly the historic actions, the plans which were built over the last decade within the diversified international locations, and the implications that have materialized in this time in numerous constructing international locations. It goals to accomplish for improvement enterprises to be assisted in how one can locate more beneficial instruments for the appliance of improvement relief. The final portion of the publication includes a advisor for lecturers to introduce astrophysics into college physics classes. this may be of use to academics in lots of nations.Everything defined during this ebook is the results of a really collective attempt from all fascinated about all UN/ESA workshops. The mutual aid from the individuals has helped considerably to enforce a number of the accomplishments defined within the e-book. instead of organizing this e-book in a subject matter pushed method, it's basically geared up based on the typical financial areas of the realm, as outlined via the United international locations (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin the US and the Caribbean, Western Asia). this permits larger acceptance of the significance of a nearby (and every now and then) worldwide method of uncomplicated house technological know-how for thedeveloping nation's around the globe. It highlights very particular clinical investigations which were accomplished effectively within the quite a few constructing countries. The e-book vitamins the printed ten volumes of workshop court cases containing clinical papers offered within the workshops from 1991 to 2002.Information at the workshops is additionally to be had at seas.columbia.edu/~ah297/un-esa/index.html oosa.unvienna.org/SAP/bss/index.html oosa.unvienna.org/SAP/centres/centres.html

34 3. Observing with the Telescopes: Research In the course of preparing the establishment of the above astronomical telescope facilities, the workshops made intense efforts to identify available material to be used in research and education by utilizing such facilities. It is obvious that variable star observing by photoelectric or CCD photometry can be a prelude to even more advanced astronomical activity. Variable stars are those whose brightness, colour, or some other property varies with time.

The Commission on Astronomical Education is concerned with improving and extending knowledge of astronomy at all levels. g. planets, their satellites, craters and the like. The reason why it does so, is to avoid ambiguity of nomenclature. The aim is to give a unique name to each solar system feature. A database of suitable names, assembled on an international basis has been formed and is continuously expanded. Success has not always attended the Union's efforts to achieve unique nomenclature - until recently the naming of asteroids rested with the discoverer with the result that some duplication occurred.

While the first generation INSAT-1 series satellites were procured from Ford Aerospace Corporation, indigenously built and improved INSAT-2 series satellites have been launched using commercial launchers. The current INSAT series, INSAT-3 is aimed toward achieving continuity of services, increased capacity and improved capability.
