Dear STARS friends,

The STARS project these days feels like a buzzing beehive: we are hearing of all sorts of activities that are taking place, with many people frantically working towards results, and generally the project is even more active than before.  These are exciting times therefore, and we believe that this June issue of the Newsletter provides quite some evidence of all that activity.  We hope you will enjoy reading the news items again this month, and are happy to inform that more is coming.  Obviously, we are keen to hear back, either on the topics presented in this issue, or on topics that you feel have not been sufficiently addressed.  We are keen to get that feedback, so please have it coming.


Happy reading to all of you,


The STARS team
