Official Participants (November 10, 2003)

All reports that were received have now been screened. The projects marked in blue in the "country" and the "object" tables have been accepted and admitted to the "Catch a Star!" contest by the jury.

The jury is very pleased with the number and quality of the reports and the evaluation process is not an easy one! Nevertheless, the announcement of the winners of the "Catch a Star!" prizes will take place as planned on November 10, at the time of the "Physics on Stage 3" festival at ESA-ESTEC (Noordwijk, The Netherlands). The names of all of the winners will appear at the "Winners" webpage soon thereafter.
