Satellite 6 Accomodation Suggestion

Looking for accommodation for Satellite 6 away from the boring routine of comfortable hotels, indoor toilets and hot breakfasts? Then why not try the Satellite 6 tent? This lightweight tent offers 3 bedrooms, weighs in at only 32 kg and has a handy fly-first pitching style (No, I don't know what that means either). It can sleep up to 6 fans and, apparently, 4 ferrets according to the User Reviews. The DLX version even comes with an extended tunnel on the front. A must for the discerning SF fan who enjoys sleeping close to nature and doesn’t give a hoot for personal hygiene!

Unwanted Textbooks?

Still got your school, university or even nursery books? Looking to donate them to a good cause? Then bring them to Satellite 6!

We are collecting books on behalf of Books Abroad, an Aberdeen-based charity that sends books to schools in developing countries. They take good quality, used books for children and young adults, from pre-school to university level, focussing on technical or educational books. There will be a donation point At-Con and our good friend Alistair Stewart (a.k.a. Smurf) will deliver the books personally to the charity.

The books must be in good condition and contributions on rapidly-changing topics (IT, geography etc) must be < 10 years old.

We can accept:
• Secondary school and university textbooks
• General reference books e.g. dictionaries, encyclopaedias, recent world atlases
• Fiction and non-fiction for young children e.g. Ladybird books etc.
For full information on the range of books accepted, see the Book Abroad: Donate Page page

The Satellite 6 Committee was asked to run the Newsletter for Follycon this Easter. We used this opportunity to educate discerning fans with information on the latest pScientific discoveries by publishing a pScience column in the newsletter. Copies of the newsletter are available on the Follycon Website, where you can see some of the entries already submitted. Can you do better?

We are looking for more submissions and intend to publish them in a small pamphlet at Satellite 6, where we will ask members to vote on the most amusng.

To this end we are asking for submissions of a psuedo scientific nature, the more amusing or outrageous the better. No time wasters please... unless you are announcing a new device powered by waste time.

Submission guidelines:

Entries should be in the form of a Drabble of exactly 100 words and a title of up to 15 additional words. For detals and examples, see: http://ansible.uk/writing/drabbles.html

Submissions should be emailed to pScience@Six.SatelliteX.org.uk

To allow time for printing the deadline for submissions is 7th May 2018
