Astropy: Google Summer of Code!

astropy

As one of the co-ordinators of the Astropy project, I am very happy to announce that two talented students will be joining the Astropy project as part of this year's Google Summer of Code (GSoC)!

For anyone not familiar with GSoC, it is a great program that allows students around the world to spend the summer contributing to an open source project (the students receive a stipend from Google for their work). Astropy is participating in GSoC as a sub-organization in the Python Software Foundation organization.
