Library Space Technology Network

talk Room #1


Since May 2019, librarians at the Center for Astrophysics together with staff from the Libre Space Foundation have been piloting a new initiative called the Library Space Technology Network (LSTN). The aim of LSTN is to broaden access to space technologies through a network of public libraries who have agreed to install SatNOGS-powered ground stations on their roofs, and engage their communities in understanding and using the ground stations. In this talk, we will give a brief update on our progress so far, which includes: selecting the libraries for the pilot, developing a ground station kit, creating educational materials, and starting to install the ground stations at partner libraries.
