The Space Generation Advisory Council is partnering with the International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC=”Isaac”) for a SGAC Search Campaign, called “Find An Asteroid”. Thanks to some enthusiastic UKSEDS members, UKSEDS has been selected by SGAC to be one of 15 teams from around the world to participate in this campaign. Between 14th August to 18th September, they will collaborate as a research team via the internet, submitting a single MPC (Minor Planet Center) report to IASC on each of the image sets that they get during a week.

The campaign participants come from countries as diverse as: Iran, India, US, Germany, Puerto Rico, Canada, France, Vietnam, UK, Australia, Nepal, Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brazil, Russia, Portugal, Bolivia, Romania, Kuwait, Italy and Saudi-Arabia. They form national, regional or international teams.

Many thanks to: Ranji Gogoi, Sophie Lynn Williams, Yusef George Stylianou, Richard Painter and Ryan Laird for their successful applications.

Best of luck to the team!
