Science Updates Distribution concept considers new scientists affection to collect and reproduce (distribute) science news and studies' results as well as to promote scientific events and induce Research&Development products and applications to the society in terms of science communication for education delivered through common social networking interaction, aiming at the effective introduction of advanced satellite and internet systems' services,scientific tools, data and products in our everyday life.
[ Science Updates Distribution initiative stands for global cooperation and partnership within the R&D Offices of Agencies, Universities and Institutions, laboratories etc on areas such as Aerospace, Remote Sensing&Earth Observation, Astronomy, Geophysics, Meteorology, Ecology&Climatology, Renewable Energy, Fundamental Research and cutting-edge Technology with a special emphasis on Environmental Surveillance, Disaster Management and Public Safety.]
The project's approach is more on providing a joint solution and following spaceappschallenge.org movement by launching this ongoing facebook blog experiment as a collaborative science communication attempt rather than participating in a competition as a complete proposal.
For the time being 4 sample applications are being tested as tabs : ΙSS Live Stream, Space Weather, Views of the Sun and Sat24
