 Professor Nat Gopalswamy Announced a 2016 Fellow of American Geophysical Union
Join me to celebrate an eminent scientist who has made meaningful contributions to the global development of our science including in Africa.
The American Geophysical Union just announced the 2016 class of fellows made up of 60 individuals that constitute less than 0.1 % of AGU members, and on the list is our own Professor Nat Gopalswamy of NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre.
He was at the forefront of the highly successful International Heliophysical Year IHY campaign alongside Joe Davila and Hans Haubold as far back as 2004 all through 2009. On resignation of Joe Davila, he took the lead of the successor program to IHY, International Space Weather Initiative ISWI, and ever since, it has continued to be great with us in Space Weather Community.
He has been to a number of African countries on Space weather programs including Nigeria, Zambia, Kenya, Egypt, Ethiopia, South Africa and host of others. He has organised and rallied support for many African Scientists, space weather schools and workshops in developing nations.
He just successfully supervised and graduated an Ethiopian female PhD student in Astronomy whom he assisted with support from his grants in an American University few weeks ago, the 1st in the history of that great nation and 2nd most populous nation in Africa.
He is serving his second term as President of SCOSTEP.
At this moment, all of us at African Geophysical Society celebrate our own Professor Nat and wish him greater heights even as we recognised this well deserved AGU fellowship honour.
Congratulations to our own Professor and to every member of space weather community in Africa....

 INSPIRE Workshop, 20-22 July 2016, NCU, Taiwan
Last week, the Editor of the ISWI Newsletter had the pleasure of participating in this workshop. The goal of INSPIRE is to do, teach, and inspire, great science through building small satellites -- which is university research, development, and education on its own. In addition, INSPIRE is multi-year and international.
The following text is heisted from its website (http://www.ss.ncu.edu.tw/~ispre/ )
In a future issue of this newsletter more details on INSPIRE will be provided by the organizers:
Project Manager, INSPIRE
Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics
University of Colorado
Boulder, CO, USA
Institute of Space Science
National Central University
Zhongli District, Taoyuan City, Taiwan
For today, I leave you with 47 photos that I took.
