ISWI Newsletter - Vol.5 No.28
04 March 2013

Dear ISWI Participant:

I attach an excellent photo report from the organizers of a space weather event that recently took place in Nigeria.

On slide 3 you can see that Prof. Rabiu has announced the formation of CAR -- Centre for Atmospheric Research. It is part of Nigeria's space agency (National Space Research and Development Agency, under the Federal Ministry of Science&Technology). The first director of CAR is, of course, Prof. Rabiu. CAR is located on the campus of Kogi State University in Anyigba, Nigeria.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Prof. Rabiu for successfully establishing this new center in his homeland Nigeria. I expect this center will achieve great things in the coming years and decades; I expect to mention these achievements in the issues of this newsletter.

Prof. Rabiu: "Well done!".

In the service of ISWI,
George Maeda
Editor of ISWI Newsletter
