Now that everybody has climbed out from under their beds, it might be a good time to think about entering the ARISSat-1 Chicken Little Contest. We are still looking for calculations/guesses/darts-in-the-calendar submissions for when ARRISSat-1 makes its final orbit. We have a fair number of submissions from all over the world from adults, but very few from students. If you know of one who might be interested, encourage them to enter. The details are here:
While it is not going to receive the coverage of UARS, the closest submissions in each category will be recognized. Right now, the deadline is the 15th of October, though since ARISSat-1 is "floating like a butterfly" that MIGHT get extended. TBD. We want to give people enough time to enter. However, if we wait too long, the window narrows significantly, putting those who submitted early at a disadvantage.
