"Since 2005, UNAWE has grown to involve more than 500 volunteers,
organizations, and governments in 40 countries. UNAWE grew most during the
International Year of Astronomy (IYA) in 2009 and is now an important
ingredient of the International Astronomical Union's decadal development
strategy (*1* <http://www.sciencemag.org/content/333/6046/1106.full#ref-1>).

"Educational resources, generously contributed by the network of volunteers
to UNAWE, have been collected and published (www.unawe.org/). Many UNAWE
members have contributed translations, which are then featured on the site.
Quality control comes through an automatic peer adoption process. The
resources are checked for scientific accuracy by qualified astronomers
before they are posted online, where the most useful resources naturally
become the most used resources."


Perhaps Sugar Labs could collaborate, beginning with our Moon,
StarChart, & Telescope
