Norway the Space Nation

For readers in the New York area, Pål Brekke of the Norwegian Space Centre (Norsk Romsenter) will present the next installment of the American Scandinavian Foundation’s series “Living in the Northern Landscape: Culture & Climate Near the Arctic Circle” tonight at 6:30 in the Scandinavia House on Park Avenue. Brekke will discuss, among other things, recent advances in solar physics, Sun-Earth interaction, and perhaps also the Andøya Rocket Range and the Svalbard archipelago in his talk, “Northern Lights & Satellites: Norway as a Space Nation.” Admission charge/free for students.
