ASTRONET is very proud of its awards and recognitions. It is, however, impossible to put all the banners on the home page. It would make that page much slower and yet the headlines on that page are meant to act as a fast news service. Therefore awards and recognitions are put on this special page.

The awards and recognitions mentioned here are "official". Not mentioned are the many "unofficial" letters that ASTRONET is receiving almost every day. They are most appreciated because they are sent by you, ASTRONET's readers. Reading your encouragements makes producing ASTRONET a real pleasure!
