Delayed Again! - Monday July 29, 2002
As you probably already know we have been delayed once again! This time its not because of other missions taking priority or hubble space telescope repairs but the grounding of the entire space shuttle fleet! What else could possibly go wrong??? (that was a rhetorical question by the way). Below is an article on the problem.
There is now an updated list of all the people who have helped us raise funds to get to America. Click here to see the list.
Monash Council Farewell...
The Monash City council threw us a going away party just before the holidays because were supposed to be going to America two weeks after. At the party we were able to thank many of the people who have helped us prepare our experiment and our sponsors. A Photo archive will soon be avaliable.

Eat Cadbury - Friday 7 June, 2002
We would like to ask everybody who visits this site to buy Cadbury chocolate over any other brand because of their massive donation of $40,000. This money has brought us halfway to our funding goal. We would also like to thank NEC and Damson's for their donations.
Wednesday May 1st, 2002
Ben and Dhanusya have come back from America safely, along with a lot of photos and news about our experiment. Hopeful I'll be able to put up some photos of their trip and and some sort of story about what they did over there and what they saw.

Our first team is headed off to America to setup our experiment over in Boulder Colorado. They will be gone for a week and will meet students from other schools around the world participating in the STARS Program. We would like to thank Dawsons for their kind donation to help them get over and back. More information about Dawsons can be found on our sponsors page.
