It is our pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract for the 8th Australian Space Science Conference in Canberra Australia (ASSC). This will be the second ASSC jointly sponsored and organised by the National Committee for Space Science (NCSS) and the National Space Society of Australia (NSSA).

Space science, including space and atmospheric physics, remote sensing from/of space, planetary sciences, astrobiology and life sciences, and space-based astronomy and astrophysics.

  1. Dear Sir,
    I’ve been looking through your site over the past few days and I found your site to be very informative.
    I was able to find everything I need from Space Station to accident information from links in this site as well as by following external links from this website.
    I can see you have a list of space station sites useful both for your users as well as end users who visit I have a blog related to space station with useful information to our visitors.
    It would be great, if you could spare a few minutes visiting my blog. If you find my blog to be informative, it would be nice if you could provide us a link.
    I have been maintaining this blog for more than a year.

    My blog deals with current news on NASA Space Missions,International Space News,Shuttle & Station,Moon & Mars,Solar System,Earth,Universe, Aeronautics,Science & Technology
    I have got many back links for my blog from government sites, org sites, as well as edu sites.

    Sites are as follows

    So If you could provide me a link to my blog, it will be much more useful for user and young school and college peoples.

    Around 10,000 visitors daily visits my blog. So it will be highly benefited for your sites also.
    It would be great pleasure if you can add this link in your site so that it can benefit our visitors.
    Thanks for your help and consideration,
