There are two items today:
It is attached as the first pdf. The opening statement is this:
Yes, I think the word "redundancy" is a key point in many of the ISWI instrument arrays. Even in our high-tech age (especially in our high-tech age?), instruments do fail. So network redundancy is important to a surprising extent. The e-Callisto array and MAGDAS array have some built-in redundancy because of the large number of deployed instruments. Both arrays are truly global in coverage.
Dr Nat Gopalswamy once quipped this: "The sun never sets on the MAGDAS empire." The same can be said of the e-Callisto network.
(2) supplement to the previous ISWI Newsletter (Vol 5, Number 38)
The previous ISWI Newsletter contained this pdf: Peter Gruss, Präsident der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Wir müssen ein weltweites Netz knüpfen
It is written in German. Today, I attach its English version. It speaks of the importance of internationalization. And a marvelous example of this is ISWI. It operates on the (correct) premise that space weather science requires the input of all nations of the world -- their land resources and their human resources.
