The SEDS chapter at University at Buffalo in New York just started a campaign on Pepsi's Idea 50K website asking Pepsi for the funding to rebuild their run-down campus astronomical observatory. They would like the funds to rebuild the current old 12' by 12' building with a newer, bigger building that will house their telescopes and allow them to do a lot of public astronomy outreach. Go to http://pep.si/bXRWIT to vote for their idea (may use Facebook login).
Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS-USA) is excited about SpaceUp DC, an unConference being held in Washington D.C. this weekend, August 27-28, 2010, and encourages any interested students to attend. The SpaceUp unconference is working to bring together all types of space enthusiasts at our nation's capital including regular people interested in space, students, and rocket scientists from NASA and private companies. The idea of an unconference (similar to a barcamp) is to allow all these people to participate and collaborate on vaulting humankind into space, a mission that cannot be done by engineers and scientists alone.
