Extractions: Three of the University of Central Florida's five international goals are: UCF offers a variety of programs that support these goals by educating students for global competence via internationalized courses, language offerings, internships and work experiences in internationally related areas. UCF also offers many types of study-abroad programs that meet the general education requirements and the needs of majors in all colleges. The ultimate goal of global education is to create a trans-national understanding of the social economic, cultural, environmental and political realities of the 21st Century. The Office of International Studies (OIS) is a University level office that serves as a clearinghouse for all international programs and coordinates such programs within the University. The mission of the OIS is to create an environment that facilitates the identification, development, promotion, coordination, and support of high quality international activities related to the academic mission of UCF. The on-going development of the international dimension at UCF will be realized through the implementation of goals and objectives related to the curriculum, faculty development, policies and planning, academic support, students, the community, funding, and external agencies.

Extractions: Federal agencies are prohibited from lobbying. Wealthy corporations often do it for them, though, but usually with string$ attached (such as influence over agency policies, project selection, and even contract awards). Such government contractors even manage to "co-opt" or infiltrate certain so called " citizens Combined Federal Campaign ". Are we doing enough to support the space-related organizations that try harder to take the moral high road, though? Below is a list of known websites for space-oriented lobbying groups.

Select your view SPACE POLICY We are delighted to announce the winner of the Maxim Taraenko essay competition for 2004. The winning entry is by Craig Cornelius, a master's candidate in Science, Technology and Public Policy at George Washington University, and is called 'Science in the National Vision for Space Exploration '. It will be published in the February 2005 issue of Space Policy. Space Policy is an international, interdisciplinary journal which draws on the fields of international relations, economics, history, aerospace studies, security studies, development studies, political science and ethics to provide discussion and analysis of space activities in their political, economic, industrial, legal, cultural and social contexts. Alongside full-length papers, which are subject to a double-blind peer review system, the journal publishes opinion pieces, case studies and short reports and, in so doing, it aims to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and opinions and a means by which authors can alert policy makers and international organizations to their views.

The aeronomy studies the physical and chemical phenomena within planetary and cometary atmospheres, resulting primarily from the interaction with the solar radiation. In the case of our atmosphere, it inquires also the influence of biological or human activity. The ozone hole, the greenhouse effect, the magnetic storms and the radiations belts are some outstanding examples. Address: Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy

IMPRS Solar System School / Institutes The institute plays a leading role in a vast number of space missions, withHelios, Giotto, Ulysses, SOHO, Cluster and Rosetta being prominent examples, http://www.linmpi.mpg.de/solar-system-school/institutes.html
Extractions: The school is implemented in parallel with the PhD program at the Technical University of Braunschweig and the Subjects of investigations are the Sun and its atmosphere and the interplanetary medium, the surfaces, atmospheres, ionospheres and magnetospheres of the planets, their rings and moons, comets and asteroids. The solar corona is observed with optical instruments in space over the entire spectral range from the visible to soft X-rays. Its plasma properties are determined by spectroscopic methods and by in-situ observations in interplanetary space. The lower solar atmosphere is investigated with spectropolarimetric techniques, both from ground and space. The main aim is to study the Sun's magnetic field and its fundamental role in driving a large number of solar phenomena, many of which constitute the cause for space weather or are suspected drivers of global climate change. The planets, specifically Mars, and their moons, asteroids and comets are investigated with space-borne and ground-based imaging techniques and with in-situ measurements. Research topics comprise the interior structure and dynamics of planets and small bodies, the composition and evolution of their surfaces and atmospheres and the planetary plasma environment. The basic goal is to understand the origin and evolution of the solar system. The institute plays a leading role in a vast number of space missions, with Helios, Giotto, Ulysses, SOHO, Cluster and Rosetta being prominent examples, and operates or has a stake in a number of ground-based observatories. In the course of this involvement the institute has built up a unique know-how in the design, construction, qualification, and operation of a wide variety of specialised instruments. These instruments are or will be providing high-quality data, which constitute an excellent basis for many PhD theses. There is also a strong background in theoretical plasma physics at the institute, which is now being augmented by a strong emphasis on numerical simulations applied to geophysics, planetary science and solar physics. A state of the art multiprocessor computer system allows demanding numerical calculations to be performed.
Extractions: Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics March 22, 2000 Mr. Chairman and Members of the Subcommittee: Thank you for inviting the National Institute on Aging (NIA) to participate in todays hearing on life and microgravity research and collaborations between the National Institute on Aging and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It is an honor to appear before you today with my colleague Dr. Arnauld Nicogossian and the distinguished panel of witnesses. Overview of NIA/NASA Collaborations as well as other Institutes at the NIH, and NASA have supported joint ground/space projects, such as the Neurolab Program and the STS-95 mission. Most of the workshops supported by the NIA and NASA have focused on analysis and comparisons of changes observed during aging and the physical changes induced by space flight ( Chart #1 ). Through the issuance of workshop papers and grant solicitations, or Program Announcements (PA), these workshops have endeavored to stimulate the scientific community to engage in relevant research. The latest NIH-NASA Program Announcement "Earth-Based Research Relevant to the Space Environment," for example, was issued as a result of recommendations that arose from the 1997, NIA-NASA workshop "Aging and Space Flight: Expanding the Science Base" (
