The John G. Wolbach Library at the Center for Astrophysics (a collaboration between Harvard University and the Smithsonian Institution) has partnered with the Libre Space Foundation to create new infrastructure to support small satellite missions and enable public engagement with space technologies.
Part of this initiative is LSTN (Library Space Technology Network), a project that offers public library communities the chance to build and engage with space technology. During the pilot phase, five public libraries around the world will build SatNOGS-powered ground stations and provide feedback to the core team.
The LSTN Handbook is an evolving reference guide that will help libraries in building, operating, and troubleshooting their ground stations. The latest version of the Handbook will be uploaded here as new chapters are added.
