AerospaceResearch.net[0] accepts applications for mentors and students for
Google Summer of Code (GSOC) 2014, now! As a mentor, you can realize your
space software, and as a student you are coding it during the summer and
are paid US$5500 by Google for it!

The application period for Mentors is open now and you can apply via [1].
So be creative and propose your idea and be a trustworthy mentor to a young
and creative mind!

For you students, the application period starts 10 March and will end 21
March. Prepare yourself and read our and all the other 190 organizations'
ideas. And then come back to AerospaceResearch.net, because we have the
most awesome coding ideas for your. They are all space applications! Here
is a brief overview:

    [SSGT-XX] Solar System Grand Tour (continuation of last year's GSOC
    [DGSN-XX] Distributed Ground Station Network
    [COMT-XX] Comet Trails (supported by Institute of Space Systems,
Stuttgart University)
    [SNET-XX] Sensor Networks (supported by RadioPunks)
    [DEOP-XX] Dynamical Evolution of Protoplanets

GSOC is an annual coding campaign, in which Google awards stipends (of
US$5500) to selected students who work on free and open-source software
projects for certain organizations during the summer. This year it is
Google's 10th Summer of Code. It will be bigger and better! With this years
190 organizations, it tops last year's 177 open source projects and
organizations who took part and mentored 1,192 students and their projects.
In general, GSOC is open for students aged 18 and older. It offers diverse
projects ranging from software development for Wikipedia and Linux
operating systems, to mobile platforms, to firmware and also academic work
on basic algorithms. People can also mentor emerging developers during
their three months of work and provide support and personal help.

On a private remark about GSOC 2013, AerospaceResearch.net was lucky to
have been selected as an organization and mentoring three students. This
was an "awesome and motivating" experience and we advise projects and
students alike to visit GSOC 2014 website and apply! You can find our
information and ideas via [1].
During GSOC 2013, we mentored 3 students who coded open-source space
application. So this is your chance to combine three things you like during
summer: space, programming and money. Of course Google looks for talented
programmers like you!

Being a mentor is inspiring because you support great students and great
space projects. Mentors are also invited to Google HQ in Mountain View
(paid flight) to the mentors summit and get a tour. This is rewarding in
many ways to be part of such a great campaign!
You, as a mentor or student, can propose and let your space project ideas
be realized! So if you have coding ideas for your project, you can propose
them to us and we will announce them on our ideas page to the coding GSOC
students. Here is your chance to find further helping hands.

AerospaceResearch.net has open space for everyone!
