I am not too familiar with space technology. Do you know whether they are
publishing some public domain data about space (e.g., about stars etc.)?
Considering SMW's new Triple Store Connection and my interests in using SMW
with numerical Linked Data, I'd be happy to propose a project and mentor a
student. I cannot contribute much to the proposal effort, though.

Subject: Re: [SMW-devel] ESA Summer of Code
I agree with you. I got the impression that it is very much a prototypic
project. They seem to work under a tight schedule themselves - else
they could hardly call it _Summer_ of Code. So, yes, I think the point
is to make a sufficiently convincing case. Maybe it would help if one of
the tasks would be to implement a showcase. E.g. there is SNPedia. Why
not have something similar for celestial objects (stars, planets,
It would certainly help to find out where and how SMW is used in NASA.
(Btw, SMW is also used at ESA already, although to such a small extent
that only two people really know about it, so it probably does not
count. :) )

All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
