ISWI Newsletter - Vol.3 No.30
Dear ISWI Participant:
15 March 2011
As promised yesterday, I attach an 18-page document describing
the activities of the Philippines during the IGY. It was written
by James J. Hennessey (1909-1987), who joined Manila Observatory
in 1951 and became its director in 1957 (the start of IGY).
This document appears to have been issued in December of 1956.
I also attach a much shorter document that describes the
spectroheliograph that was operational at MO at one time.
The document comes from the blog of Dr Sugon, who plays a key
part in the Sub Center that was described in yesterday's
ISWI Newsletter (Vol. 3, No. 29).
If you wish any documents of historical interest to be archived
at the ISWI website, please send to me. If it goes out on the
ISWI Newsletter (what you are now reading), then it is automatically
archived at the ISWI website ----- for eternity.
Also, at the end of ISWI, all issues of the newsletter will be
burned on to a CD-ROM, if the total size is under 600 MB.
If over 600 MB, then it will be burned on to DVD. In any case,
a large stock of disks will be sent to UNOOSA for long-term
safe keeping at the conclusion of ISWI.
