@stro objects - the archive

The @stro object of the week has been temporarily taken offline while we put our development time into our new website - The expected release date of is mid-July, 2000. The @stro object should return then.

Clear skies and thanks for your patience!!

Every week the @stro pages publishes an "@stro object" to various newsgroups and email lists. The basic idea is to put out small "executive summaries" about various astronomy and space related objects, equipment, launches, missions, etc. with Internet links to find more information. This is the archive of that effort. If you would like to suggest your favorite topic or object as an "@stro object of the week", and you you haven't seen it here, PLEASE submit it below!
