Welcome to week 3!

steve-p-galileoscope-unesco-sidewalk.jpg It’s hard to believe, but we’re already in week three of the IYA2009, and oh what a wild few weeks it’s been! On the heels of our US opening ceremony in Long Beach, California, the International festivities were launched on January 16th in Paris, France. Among those there from the US were Doug Isbell (our Single Point of Contact) and Steve Pompea (chair of Galileoscope and US Program Director – pictured at right with a Galileoscope). See this NewsCenter article to get the full scoop! Also check out all these other great IYA links: And don’t forget to follow our twitter.
