This is really amazing.
Jim Thieman is the
Co-director of the NASA program I work for at Goddard Space Flight
try to talk with him more about his program as soon as possible. I
like to include Elaine Lewis, our Formal Education Coordinator, in the
Michael, I have corresponded with Wanda Diaz, a wonderful person, and
very dedicated to Radio Jove in Puerto Rico.
am only a private individual participating in RJ, and do not represent
RJ in any official capacity. I will help you, with pleasure.
The RJ Kit costs US$ 155 plus shipping, this includes the antenna
and the receiver, in kit form, but excludes the supports and the
The kit can be ordered at
The computer can be used for other purposes, even as it is logging
RJ data. I believe that the assembly of the RJ receiver from the Kit
components is an important tool for Science Education in a High School
and FUN !!. Wanda has more experience about it than I do.
I do not represent Anderson High School, I have been helping Jeff
Rodriguez, AHS Physics Teacher, in the same way that I will help you.
You will not need a constant web connection. You will be able to mail
images and records, as time permits.
Does the Ras Darge Preparatory School have a web connection ?
I believe only Jim Thieman can give you permission to list the Radio
Jove Project as a Partner in your project.
You have already started your collaboration with me !!!

you for working so hard to get Radio JOVE to the school in
Ethiopia. We are happy to help make this happen in whatever way
our resources will allow. Regarding the cost of the JOVE kit, we
have been able to get monetary assistance for purchasing the JOVE kits
from the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers. I don't know if
they are continuing this program, but it wouldn't hurt to ask if you
think that will be helpful to your project. As Victor says, we
will be happy to help guide as needed.

School Africa [2 Craters Space Camp, December 2008]
Dear Abebe and Members of the international
Space Science & Education Community
The 2008 Space
School Africa Camp has been scheduled for December 7 to 14, 2008. It is
unique in the sense that participants will do Lost in Space
Survival Exercises in two meteorite impact
craters in South Africa: the Tswaing Crater and the
Vredefort Dome. Information about our
2 Craters Camp is available at http://www.nydt.org/home.asp?pid=1044
We would like to set
up an interactive programme that will give our students the opportunity
to set up "virtual mission control centres" with students in other
countries and on other Continents.
It is therefore our
objective to involve school students from countries in Africa as well
as on other Continents to participate with our students on virtual
basis. We therefore appeal to you to assist us with
the identification of school students, teachers and career
professionals who wish to participate in the 2 Caters Camp on virtual
scenarios will be given to the "survivors" to solve, for instance
polluted water supplies and a medical emergency, and they will then
have the opportunity to contact mission controls on "other planets" for
assistance. Our students will contact the students in other countries
through e-mails [indirectly] and per mobile phones [directly].
We would also like
to invite any student or teacher who wishes to attend the 2
Craters Camp in real time [Even at this short notice] to contact me
for assistance iro arrangements.
professional, astronomer or teacher who wishes to participate on
virtual basis, or attend in real time as VIP lecturer or
member of the group [as educator/coach] is welcome, and may
contact me for advice/assistance.
participation: The cost for international participants is US$ 270
per person for local transport, accommodation and food [We are also not
in a position to pay for any air fare].
It is our further
objective to present a multi-national Space Camp in 2011 when the IAF's Congress
will take place in Cape Town, South Africa. The 2 Craters Camps of
2008, 2009 and 2010 will be rehearsals for the camp that we plan for
If we can assist the
Arsi Assella School or any other school on the Continent this way, it
will be great for us.
