Librarian’s Note: STK is pretty much the industry-standard software for satellite tracking. It’s come a long way since 2000 when we had a workshop on it during my Masters program at ISU. The basic package is great for an applied mathematics class at the advanced high school level, but probably best suited for introduction at the college level.
Special Alert!: AGI has teamed up with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) to apply America’s high tech aerospace tracking systems to following Santa Claus on his global quest to deliver presents/rewards to all of the Good children of the Earth. A special Google YouTube channel has been reserved for the coverage. Details are here!
