To mark the International Year of Astronomy, ESA is launching a special competition for secondary school students and undergraduates. Participants will use data obtained by the Integral space observatory to investigate objects in one of the most active regions of our Galaxy.
The competition was launched during 'Around the World in 80 Telescopes', a live 24-hour webcast that took place as part of 100 Hours of Astronomy, a cornerstone project for the International Year of Astronomy 2009.

A collection of NASA missions will be involved in a live event Friday, April 3, that will allow the public to get an inside look at how these missions are run. "Around the World in 80 Telescopes" is a 24-hour webcast that is part of the "100 Hours of Astronomy" event for the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
During the webcast, viewers will be able to visit some of the most advanced telescopes on and off the planet. For NASA's space-based missions, the webcast will be broadcast from control centres throughout the United States.
