African Scientific and Academic Network
Important paradigm shift
(1) ASAN rejects the use of the term " BRAIN DRAIN”; instead it will use   "BRAIN MISMANAGEMENT"
(2) ASAN believes that there is no such thing as "AFRICAN DIASPORA". AFRICA IS WHERE AFRICANS ARE.   Therefore Africans will contribute to the development of their continent at any time from any where

2009 UN BSS & IHY Workshop, Daejeon, Korea  September 21-25

The Objectives of the UN/NASA/ESA/JAXA Workshop on Basic Space Science and the International Heliophysical Year are to discover the physical mechanisms that drive the coupling of Earth’s atmosphere to solar and heliopheric phenomena. The systematic global study of this interaction is to be the central theme of this workshop. In view of these aims, the objectives are:

Advancing our understanding of the heliophysical processes that govern the Sun, Earth,and heliosphere

Continuing the tradition of international research and advancing the legacy on the 50th anniversary of the International Geophysical Year

Demonstrating the beauty, relevance and significance of space and Earth science to the world
