MiniSpaceWorld: The race has started!
Written by PI Club Admin   
msw_logo.jpg The MSW Design Contest 2009: Far Worlds - Best of Science Fiction - organised by peregrinus interstellar - is  now on the way! We welcome our first entrant to the contest, Team Prometheus from Austin, Texas and wish Team Leader Monroe King jr. and his folk good luck!
Read more about MiniSpaceWorld here; you may also browse in a shortlist of various MSW appearances.
We note that Team Prometheus is participating in the N-Prize content as well - a really interesting attempt launched by Paul H. Dear to involve amateurs into space activities. The challenge posed by the N-Prize is a difficult one: to launch and track a nanosatellite (hence the ‘N’, but note the alternative interpretation ‘Negligible resources’) weighing between 9.99 and 19.99 grams through at least nine complete Earth orbits.
