The Manila Observatory and DOST-PCIEERD held a Space Science and Technology Applications (SSTA) scoping-consultation workshop at the SEAMEO Innotech from November 4-6. This two day workshop is participated by various sectors of the government, academe, as well as private and international groups.
The workshop is designed to get information with regards to space science in the country and how it could progress. The Manila observatory hopes to design a 10-year plan on the progress and development of SSTA in which all the sectors are involved.
This particular project is interesting for astronomy and space science enthusiasts since it is another step to the realization of a Philippine Space Agency.
